Michael William Head (born 28 November 1961), often known as Mick Head, is an English singer-songwriter and musician from Liverpool, England. He is most famous as the lead singer and songwriter for Shack and The Pale Fountains, both of which also feature his younger brother John Head. Though the band never achieved mainstream success, they have a strong following and NME have described him as "a lost genius and among the most gifted British songwriters of his generation".

“I dont care for success. The ideas sitting in my head are annoyed by, and envious of, that which Ive already written.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
“The real pleasure of being Mick Jagger was in having everything but being tempted by nothing ... a smouldering ill will which silk clothes, fine food, wine, women, and every conceivable physical pampering somehow aggravated ... a drained and languorous, exquisitely photogenic ennui.”
—Anonymous Chronicler. Quoted in Philip Norman, The Life and Good Times of the Rolling Stones (1989)
