Dirty Heads

  • The Dirty Heads are a reggae rock band from Southern California
  • In 1996, the band was originally founded by Jared Watson and fellow vocalist/guitarist Dustin “Duddy” Bushnell in the Orange County, CA community of Huntington Beach, having a friendship based on music, as well as surfing and skating, living the Southern California lifestyle
  • They first met at a party in their freshman year of high school
  • Watson ran across a quick rap tape that Bushnell recorded, and then became inspired to collaborate with him on ideas
  • Bushnell was already in a punk band, though Watson never sang live, wrote a song, or was ever in a band, he decided to give it a try anyway
  • Later, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa and bassist David Foral were added as well, completing the band's sound
  • They got their name from a time when they were stealing alcohol from a store and someone shouting at them "Come here you little dirty heads"
  • With all their members gathered, and some solid material, the band started taking their craft seriously
  • Rob Cavallo (A record producer known for signing popular artists such as Green Day and My Chemical Romance) originally signed the band to Warner Bros., but artistic differences led them to leave the label, though they did manage to take their master recordings, which comprise the bulk of Any Port in a Storm, with them
  • The Dirty Heads have toured the U.S. multiple times with bands such as 311, Pepper, Kottonmouth Kings, Matisyahu and Sublime with Rome
  • The Dirty Heads were among the first bands featured on YouTube's Raw Session
