If you came here looking for the local bands site, that's long since
been consigned to the Great Archive in the Sky, this is just my own home
The Steamhead name came from many years ago when I "inheritted"
a lighting rig, and went on to operate it for two bands called Steam Kiitens
and Headstrong. It became known as the Steamhead rig, I got kind of attached
to the name as well - starting the Steamhead music site back in 1995.
Over the years I've been in many original material rock bands, Stella,
Predator, Headstrong and Freakzone,
the last two producing the only real recorded output.
In more recent years I was lead singer in Sack
Sabbath for nearly 3 years, before having to leave due to my job making
it difficult to commit to a gigging schedule. Nowadays I'm happy to fill
in at rehearsals for various bands to help them rehearse while they are
singerless. Though there may be something happening very soon on the live
performance front, as I've started work on a new low key project.
There's a fair amount of content on here about Headstrong,
but not about Freakzone.

||The Coalition CD was a
venture funded by Nottinghamshire County Council to help promote local
bands. Each band in the Mansfield area (the 0623 area code) was given
a free studio slot to record one song for this compilation CD release.
Freakzone's contribution was Lonely Inside.
Obsession was a self funded demo tape, recorded in a 24 hour marathon
session at Revolver Studios in Wolverhampton. Laying down the guide
and main tracks throughout the day and mixing and mastering into
the wee small hours (and back out the other side).
In recent years Obsession has been reworked into a self produced
CD release, also featuring Lonely Inside and Casual Suicide.

isn't actually a release as such, but a collection of rehearsal room
demos. It was quite a regular occurrence that once a track was "finished"
we would record a rough rehearsal demo for protection against copyright.
These were just air mikes to a rough mix, never meant as a high quality
release, just evidence of the finished song recorded and date verified.
