The Heads. Where to begin – and where to go from there. It’s as if the band is not quite sure themselves – there is more than a little truth in the title of their second album, Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere. And you know what – that doesn’t matter one damn thing…
Paul and Hugo gibber on, jetlagged and nervous after our only Austrian gig.

The Heads. Being able to both excel on shorter, more organized tracks with definite noise-rock aspirations, as well as drawn out, psyched-out jams that reach far inside your mind and soul.
The Heads. One of the few bands that really seems fit to pick up the glove from those early Pink Floyd psych-fests (think Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun).
“There was always a propensity to improvise and jam but this became more prevalent as time went on. We just enjoyed getting together and jamming. I remember reading that Can would improvise for hours and hours and record everything, so we tried to take that approach but without the crusty army mattresses.”
Paul Allen, interviewed by The Quietus, 2014
The Heads. A band that seems to even work better in collaboration with other bands, cooking up perhaps some of their most interesting works in such settings.

The Heads. Being able to work equally well when rocking hard and focused, and when losing themselves in a haze nobody seems to know exactly where came from (nor where it’s leading) – just one of the things they seem to have in common with Texas punk-psychsters Butthole Surfers.
The Heads. So very British, yet so very universal at the same time.
The Heads. Making psych great again (and again…)
