Dang Head
Dang Head
Dang Head is Jamie Smith (and whomever else shows up), a former member of Denver's d.biddle, a former member of New Mexico's the Lords of Howling, and a former member of San Francisco's Granfaloon Bus, and an occasional collaborator with Portland, OR, outfits Rollerball and the VI Foot Sloth, New Mexico's the Art of Flying, and Denver's A Dog Paloma and Porlolo. --------------------------------------------- Folk-grounded exuberance with startling elements of random noise might best describe Nounsville, the fifteen-song offering from Montana transplant J-ME Smith, aka Dang Head. Fans of musical deconstruction could argue that the ornery fella is merely skippin' down the junkyard path of poetic stray animals with a butterfly net -- and they'd be right. But the critters, duly nabbed (with the help of a few long-lost members from Questa, New Mexico's Lords of Howling), deserve a zoo of their own, and they get one on Smith's homegrown Discobolus imprint. It's an arresting batch of enjoyable songs, all right, strewn with dadaist humor, the occasional broken instrument and that unique mix of blessings an curses that can't help but glitter in the dust. --Westword
