Biography

hHead were a Canadian alternative rock band in the 1990s. The band consisted of Noah Mintz, Brendan Canning and a succession of drummers. They were originally known as Head, but added the second h after discovering that another band was already recording as Head.

hHead first released a cassette called, “Potato” which was followed quickly by the band’s first full length independent release, “Fireman”, in 1992. It became popular on Canadian campus radio, selling 15,000 copies.

After winning CFNY (Edge 102.1 FM) Next Big Thing contest, and hHead used their prize money to record and release their second album, “Jerk” on IRS Records in 1994. However, IRS Records was at this point in financial trouble, and the band was not well-promoted. The band then moved to the Canadian independent label Handsome Boy Records for their final album, “Ozzy” in 1996.

The band broke up in 1997.

Mintz is now a mastering engineer for artists such as Hayden and The Dears, and has recorded solo material as Noah’s Arkweld. Canning joined By Divine Right for that band’s second album, and then formed Broken Social Scene with Kevin Drew.

    w00 hHead. About 70% of my guitar work is probably unconciously influenced by Noah Mintz.
