Biography

There are, at least, four artists with the name Spearhead:
1) A ’90s project, of US Michael Franti.
2) A UK band.
3) A UK RAC band.
4) A Toronto, Canada punk band.

1) Synonymous with Michael Franti (also see Michael Franti & Spearhead). His earlier projects include The Beatnigs & The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy, which had more of an experimental/industrial sound. Spearhead then joined with Michael Franti; the young rapper who composed half of the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. The group separated after releasing their album Hypocracy is the Greatest Luxury (1992). The group then released two albums under the Spearhead name; Home (1994) and Chocolate Supa Highway (1997). The success of these dirty, wet, funky, smooth albums drove the name change to Michael Franti and Spearhead and their impressive success and influence can sadly sometimes overshadow the impressive early Spearhead releases. fans should refer to his other Last.fm pages to avoid confusion with the metal band, Spearhead.

2) A UK black/death metal band formed in 2005. Their first album, ‘Deathless Steel Command’, is essentially a raw & fast death metal album with a black metal atmosphere/feeling. It was first released in 2005 on tape, but released shortly afterwards on CD format through Invictus Productions.

    all scrobbles for the hip-hop group should redirect to the Michael Franti & Spearhead page. this page should be for the metal band only.

    The Spearhead doing death is a quality band. Kudos. But no fucking kudos to last.fm for still not having multiple pages for bands named likewise. Stupid and lazy.

    I would probably be more willing to check out the hip-hop group if their song titles actually used grammar. I get that that shouldn't affect my judgement of music, but, still, it just seems...unnecessary.

    I'm already a fan of the metal band, but I'm sorta interested in checking out the hip-hop group now. Judging from the song titles this dude's project seems like some cross between Public Enemy and De La Soul

    I hate the whole argument of who the real _______________ is with all these bands that share names. It's easy: whoever came up with the name first = the real ___________, end of story. Everyone else is just too lazy to research before committing to a band name.
