The Head Set


The Head Set came together like so many bands do – one guy screws around with a four track and puts together a bunch of songs. He shows his brother, who plays drums and happens to know a couple other dudes who mostly play Stevie Wonder songs but are up for a lark. Next thing you know, proper rehearsals are underway and everyone’s looking around thinking, "Yeah, I like this, this’ll work." Starting a band in New York is strange. On the one hand, there are lots of places to perform, and people take their rock & roll pretty seriously. Read more on Last.fm
The Head Set came together like so many bands do – one guy screws around with a four track and puts together a bunch of songs. He shows his brother, who plays drums and happens to know a couple other dudes who mostly play Stevie Wonder songs but are up for a lark. Next thing you know, proper rehearsals are underway and everyone’s looking around thinking, "Yeah, I like this, this’ll work." Starting a band in New York is strange. On the one hand, there are lots of places to perform, and people take their rock & roll pretty seriously.

On the other hand, rehearsal space is hard to find, and one winds up spending a lot of time with these “man with a van” types who clearly have a death wish and are always listening to Celtic Frost cassettes. Which is pretty awesome, actually. So The Head Set played around New York a bunch, recorded an EP that Steve Lamacq and others toyed around with, survived a hilariously inept showcase at the Viper Room, etc. They made an full-length album called 'Way Past Used' with their friend Nic Hard, recording out in Connecticut at a studio The Pixies used to use. Along the way they performed with a lot of great bands like Ted Leo, Editors, & Sonic Youth. The Head Set admires David Bowie, U2, and The Police, among many others, and rely mostly on Jordan’s melodic instincts and a really strong rhythm section.

With a full album of new material ready for release in early 2011, The Head Set hopes to follow in the footsteps of their various influences. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
