hHead were an alternative rock band, formed in 1991 in Toronto. The band was originally formed by Noah Mintz and Brendan Canning as an acoustic duo, with a rotating succession of drummers rounding out the trio after they evolved into a harder rock band. The band’s first album, Fireman, was released independently in 1992, and became popular on Canadian campus radio. In 1993, the band won CFNY-FM’s Discovery to Disc contest, which awarded them $100,000 toward the recording of a new album.
