Dirty Heads & Iration
Dirty heads is a reggae–punk fushion band out of Huntington Beach, California, US formed in 1996. The founding members, MC, Jared “Dirty J” Watson and vocalist/guitarist, Dustin “Duddy B” Bushell met at a party in high school.
Bushell was in a punk band and had recorded some hip-hop demo tapes and the two started collaborating, recording in Bushells garage. They created their blend of pop-punk, reggae and hip-hop that was to see them through their recording career under the name “Dirty Head”, which was apparently the name they earned from their family members in their garage days.
Iration are an American reggae group. They formed in Isla Vista, California in 2004, and are based in nearby Santa Barbara.
With a name that could not possibly be further opposed to the general perception of reggae – it’s about as easy to imagine Bob Marley becoming irate about something as it is to picture the members of Slipknot sitting down for afternoon tea and a nice slice of cake – Iration set out to give the genre a much-needed shot in the arm in 2004, when they began playing shows in the small college town of Isla Vista.
