Captains of the Head

Captains of the Head hail from the legendary seaport of Detroit. They sing rough songs about rough men, rough seas, and loose women. Using acoustic instruments, in the maritime folk tradition, they pay tribute to other X-rated singers such as Salty Dick, Oscar Brand, John Valby, G.G. Allin, and Joan Baez. After finding common ground in this tradition of musical scumbags, the members of COTH (Capt. Gar Density, Capt. Rod Chesterhills, and Capt. Don River) each took it upon themselves to promote each other to the rank of Captain without having the authority to do so. They then set out on a voyage to keep the fithy sea shanty tradition alive & well by rescuing forgotten songs and writing new ones to fit these fucked up times.
