Biography

colossal head began as a pet project for performing a collection of songs Micah had written while still with 27bstroke6. By comparison, colossal head is a technically simple group, focused more on the songs than the elements that make them up.

The Sound: [ fokadelic funkytonk ] Colossal Head is an approachable Sunday afternoon armchair rock'n'roll filled with sonic textures and wheelies. The orchestration is taylored to achieved maximum auditory pleasure while the arrangements are customized to fully enhance the sonic tapestry. The songs range from the gentle contented sigh of a Summer's afternoon to the maniacal angst of a serotonin starved insomniatic night when paranoia and depression would be an improvement. But most of it is pretty feel-good stuff that readily maps a deep wrinkle in the temporal lobe.

Musical Influences: Brian Wilson, the Electric Mayhem, Roger Miller, David Byrne, JJ Cale, CSN, Guster, Beastie Boys, Jimmy Bryant & Speedy West, Buddy Emmons, Zombies, and Steely Dan.

Lyrical Influences: Kurt Vonnegut and Robert Pirsig

Colossal Head started in 2003 with a few different members and is now comprised of what we think is the best group around. There is no need to describe how we are different from other bands...simply listen to a take or two.

Currently we are trying to play more shows out of state while still being able to keep our jobs here in the "home" town.

Discography

We currently have 2 albums floating about. The first "The Losing Kind" was when other members played other instruments. The second album "Two" was released in 2006 and we are currently toying with the thought of working on a third.
