Crooked times are in the future of Head of the Herd

Crooked times are coming to Golden as Head of the Herd plays the Crooked Antler.

Head of the Herd will be performing at the Crooked Antler on Jan. 19.

Back for the second time in four months, is the band Head of the Herd who will be performing at the Crooked Antler on Jan. 19.

The band, who describes themselves as modern rock blues with one hell of an edge, played at Taps in October, where they performed for a packed house, promoting the release of their first video featuring the single Ain’t My Day.

A relatively new band, Head of the Herd was featured in the Fox 99.3 Fox Seeds competition in Vancouver. The annual contest, which has seen winners such as Nickleback, Bif Naked and Matt Good, gets hundreds of applicants each year. Head of the Herd went through public voting and professional judging to make the top three.

The two musicians, one from Calgary and the other from Comox, found each other in Vancouver in a fairly unusual way.

“Our girlfriends were living together at the time,” said Neauman Mannas, one half of the duo which also features Clayton Frank. Those relationships may have ended in somewhat of a disaster, but out of it came a friendship, a harmonious musical partnership, and some powerful lyrics about passion, heartbreak, and devilish women.

“The record came from a very honest and natural place,” said Frank. “When we started we didn’t really have an endgame. We were just writing songs.”

Many of their songs, which the two of them write together, are about those very relationships, but there is one song featured on their debut album that was written by the great Johnny Cash.

“It is one of my favourite songs ever written,” said Frank of Cash’s 25 Minutes To Go. The song tells the story of a man on death row with 25 minutes left in his life. It is that kind of storytelling in song that the band strives for in their own music.

Their full album, On the House, is available for free download on their website

On the road, the band travels with a full band, adding more depth and excitement to their live show. They will be taking the stage at the Crooked Antler at 8 p.m., doors open at 7:30. The cost is $10 at the door.
