Sunday Sessions: Header

Here's a great song from a now-obscure Perth band who shone brightly and briefly in 1996.

They left behind one great LP "On High Street" and a couple of great singles, of which this is one.

Stylistically they had a retro yet modern grunge sound with heaps of melody attached. They sounded a little bit like Bob Mould, a little bit like Teenage Fanclub and, I didn't realise it until I saw the video for the first time the other night, they looked one hell of a lot like Oasis. I was pretty horrified to see that actually - the clip looked like a recreation of the "Definitely Maybe" LP cover.

Still, despite the fact they folded in 1997, this song still rocks. Enjoy today's Sunday Session: "Restoration" by Header.
