How do I lower my keg's pressurereduce the amount of head when dispensing from a keg?

I just got a couple of used kegs from a former brew club member, he had to move away and sell all his brewing supplies :-(

The good news was that I picked up two kegs, a CO2 tank and all the required supplies for cheap.

However I've got an issue, my tank's pressurewhen I pour there is way too highmuch head. I've got a double IPA in there at the moment, and every glass I pour is 90% head.

I've turned the CO2 tank all the way down.

One thing I should mention is that my freezer at this point in time isn't tall enough for keg's so I've got this keg sitting in my basement, which, while chilly, isn't cold. So the beer is relatively warm, however it is so good that I love drinking it at this temperature.
