98 Tom Here's the Weather by Shack 2003
Second appearance by the Head brothers, after the Pale Fountains comes Shack. Although HMS Fable has one of my favourite singles in Comedy on it, the follow up just pips it.
Recorded in only 7 weeks , there is the usual classic 60s songwriting all with a woozy summery feel. A great example is this melt in the ears ballad
The Girl With the Long Brown Hair - Shack
They add in strings and horns to the guitars and plaintive vocals. The whole lp feels quite under stated even with the slightly psychedelic guitars in Chinatown
This strange clip seems to have the recorded version dubbing a live performance from when they supported Oasis. Either way Miles Apart is a lovely tune and one of John rather than Michael's songs
