In 1997 Jake Alejo set out to create an experimental music project that fused the raw sound of garage rock with the unlikely partner of heavily layered electronic sequencing. Through the use of unconventional recording techniques and extensive one-man multi-tracking, the first demo dawning the name of Uglyhead was created. The demo made its way to college radio specialty shows and immediately found an audience willing to embrace the harsh and visceral music.

As the Uglyhead recordings grew in popularity Alejo assembled a band of local musicians from the Pacific Northwest. Many shows followed containing re-workings of the original recordings that revealed a side of the project that was even more aggressive and abrasive than what was contained on the demo.

In 1999 Jake hand selected a team of musicians to aid in the recording of the first Uglyhead studio album. He wanted to maintain a rough edge to the album to go against the grain of all the slick electronic albums being produced at that time. In order to get the desired effect, Jake took on the daunting task of making an electronic album without the use of computers. The end result was a bludgeoning mix of analog synths, acoustic instruments and outboard samplers. The album sarcastically entitled "E.P" was released with 11 tracks in 2000 and well received by both fans and press.

Uglyhead went on to play many supporting shows for the album and continued to rework the studio versions of the songs for live presentation. After appearing on various compilations it was becoming more apparent that there was a huge difference between listening to a recording of Uglyhead and hearing the project Live.

The next step for Uglyhead was to record and release the live album "From time to time...". The album captures a moment in time in the constant evolution of the Uglyhead live performance. Alejo and crew extract a combination of previously released and album exclusive material that explodes out from waves of harsh and ambient noise. "From time to time..." is a way for Uglyhead fans to relive the unique experience of hearing Uglyhead live as well as a document of Uglyheadâs continued development and an indication of the musical boundaries that they continue to push.
