Help us make a set list.

UNS-Dislocation-1Severed Heads will return to Europe at Krakow Unsound, in October. The festival sold out of season passes in a few minutes, but we suspect it’s the fine line up of attractions rather than our own charm. We want to acknowledge that by aligning with our new peers.

These peers are not the ‘industrial dance music’ troops that we usually get lumped with. All due respect to the angry young men in camouflage, but we are middle aged gents, sans gas masks, muscle and hate. We have 30+ years of fine and merry tunes, and surely in there in something suitable.

Just as we did with the Better Dead Than Head tour last year, we ask you to suggest tunes. Please look at the other acts, and give your learned opinion. Note also that the Krakow set will be distinct to any other rumoured appearance (say for example at the Duck and Spoon talent night in Bristol).

Bless you.

UPDATE: A REMINDER TO PLEASE LOOK AT THE OTHER ACTS BEFORE VOTING THANK YOU.

  1. I vote you play tracks like legion, confidence and treating deaf mutes.. I saw you guys at coldwaves last year and though the set was flawless.. these tracks would’ve pushed it over the edge for me..

    Cheers!

    1. Sevs in Space
      Carry The Birds

      Probably too many in there, but those are tracks that would please a decent amount of people whether or not they’re familiar with your work, and of course, ones that I personally would vote for.

  2. I’ll stick to 5 favs.

    Nation
    First Steps
    Phantasized Persecutory Breast
    Big Car
    Jet Lag

  3. All Saints Day
    Pilots Hate You
    Oblique Firefly Overlocker
    Harold & Cindy Hospital
    Mosquito
    Canine

    Brassiere in Rome

  5. I’d like to place my votes for First Steps and Care Is Dead. Also, can we vote for tracks off of Rhine? If yes, then I’d also like to vote for Lolly and Fingers. Cheers!

  6. Methadone Birds
    Are You Ready For It?
    Geography
    Recall
    Somewhere Over The Gigapus
    First Steps
    4WD
    The Impotamce Of Hair
    … and some of those so called ‘hits’ you had. xx

  7. Wow! Really difficult to deviate from the ‘better dead than head’ set list, and the incredible reworking of those tracks. Obviously you’ll be playing many of those. I’d add as an intro before you come on stage, perhaps ‘Nation’ – Such a killer sythn melody and bass line. And, with the outstanding ‘Stretcher’ release, I’d include ‘Halo’, ‘Big Blue Is Back’ or ‘Blast Patter’ – Maybe ‘Snuck’ and please add ‘Lolly’ from the Rhine release. You’ll need one slow down ballad, so ‘Dressed In Air’ would be very nice. Hahahaa – So many great songs… so little time – Good luck!

    p.s. Andrew L – ‘The Importance of Hair’ from Gigipus one of my favs. Good one! Would love to see that on the list for sure!

      1. Give the dark ambients a good taste of 80s cheese cake, Adenoids materiel, as some have suggested. And, the Optimo Trax version of Greater Reward – All very beat driven. Already being familiar with the other artists appearing, either way, you win! 💀

  8. A Million Angels
    Oscars Grind
    Snuck
    Adolf a Karrot
    Heat Seeking Susan
    Dressed in Air
    George the Animal

    and so end the choices from the South West Scotland Jury

  9. Dead Eyes Opened
    Harold and Cindy Hospital
    Umbrella
    All Saints Day
    Choose Evil
    We Have Come to Bless the House
    Goodbye Tonsils

    If you’re considering playing songs from Rhine:
    Recall
    Fingers
    Department
    Montana Volcano
    Rhine

    Also, it seems like your new material would work well.
