Album Notes
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 pretty weird. 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 may have a death wish but are always blasting totally amazing metal records on cassette.

So The Head Set played around town a bunch, recorded an EP that Steve Lamacq and others toyed around with, played a hilariously inept showcase at the Viper Room, all that stuff. They did their first full length album, "Way Past Used" with their friend Nic Hard out in Connecticut at a studio The Pixies used to use. And along the way they performed with a lot of great bands, like Ted Leo and Editors – they even played on a bill with Sonic Youth.

The Head Set admires David Bowie, U2, and The Police, among many others. They try to keep things simple, relying mostly on Jordan’s melodic instincts and a pretty killing rhythm section. For music, photos, tour dates and contact info check
