An English garage punk band from Leicester, England. Their songs range in theme from trenchant social commentary to the surreal, but always with an underlying vein of black humour. Though lumped in with the largely media-created grebo scene, they were more influenced by the garage rock of the late 1960s, as well as bands like The Ramones, The Stooges and Captain Beefheart.
Formed in 1986, the band signed to the independent record label, Food, later that year and their début single, “What Gives You The Idea That You’re So Amazing, Baby?”, reached number 2 in the UK Indie Chart in March 1987.For the rest of the year they toured extensively, supporting The Cult, then Julian Cope, and also played at the Glastonbury Festival. Their second single “Baby Turpentine” reached number 4 in the Indie Chart.
In 2013, Porkbeast, Vom and Anderson joined Robber Byker from Gaye Bykers on Acid to form a new band called Swamp Delta. They subsequently released a number of singles and played at the Bearded Theory and Rebellion festivals during the summer of 2014. A tour of venues across the UK followed in the summer of 2015. Ian Anderson went on to front The Scavengers – a punk/rockabilly influenced band, based in Brighton.
Crazyhead reformed in 2017 for a series of autumn shows throughout the UK. They played at the Indie Daze 4 festival in October 2017, with further shows taking place during 2018: at the 100 Club in Oxford Street, London on 4 May; at the Uprising Festival in Leicester on 26 May; and at the Bearded Theory Festival (main stage) on 27 May.
21st Century Urban Bastard Blues.
