HEADBAND HITS TO BE RE-RELEASED BY BLUE PIE
Blue Pie Records is thrilled to announce the re-release material from Adelaide band Headband, which brought them great success between 1971-1974. Hits such as Land of Supercars and Country Lady will be re-distributed by Blue Pie, following the signing of pianist and former band member Peter Head to the label.
Headband became one of Australia’s progressive blues rock bands that formed in early 1971. The four-piece group supported Elton John in 1971, and The Rolling Stones in 1973 at their Adelaide performances, and finished third in the 1972 Hoadley's Battle of the Sounds – a national performance competition between the best groups representing each state. The band then went on to releasing their debut album, A Song for Tooley, in 1973, which featured album artwork by internationally renowned Adelaide artist Vytas Šerelis. Headband disbanded a year later.
Following the band’s break up, keyboardist, Peter Head - who joined the Blue Pie family earlier this year - went on to start up Mount Lofty Rangers; an ever-changing group of notable Adelaide musicians that included Glenn Shorrock, Robyn Archer and Bon Scott, who later joined AC/DC. Peter set up his own label, Head Office Records, in 1996 alongside radio broadcaster, David Woodhall, producing 2 CDs; "Round & Round & Round" by Bon Scott, and Peter’s first solo CD recording "King of the Cross".
Blue Pie is very excited to have Headband on board with the label!
