The Parish of Head to Head (eventually known simply as Head To Head) were an unsigned band based in Salisbury, UK. Formed in 2005, they self-released a 4 track CD called The Music EP (early 2006), and the Get Back On Your Feet ep in early 2007. There is also a remixed version of “The Music EP” the Music EP remixes. An 11 track CD called simply Demos collects all the demo recordings made at the flat in 2007.

The final, and most accomplished release was the LP Head To Head. The album was the only collection of recordings to feature all six members of the group and contains their best work.

All recordings prior to the album are available as free downloads from H2H Recordings

Their sound was a hybrid of many influences, most notably funk, electronics and disco. Early work had influences of prog rock. There were six members of the band: Noel Doak played drums and provided vocals. Tack played bass, Rich Wright played guitar and Simon Birch played keyboards. The Dazman joined the band in autumn 2006, and added more guitar. Kate Hayes also joined the band to provide more vocals. The sound was enhanced by the use of samples, that were usually triggered from the partly electronic drum kit. In 2007 they made their debut appearances at the Glastonbury Festival, and earnt a reputation as an accomplished and exciting live band, returning there in 2008.

The band folded in October 2008. New projects are immanent.
