Headband are going back to the future and releasing their 1970s progressive rock/acoustic song “Song For Tooley”.
Step back in time and revisit the 1970s. Or, if you weren’t around back then to be nostalgic, imagine living in a world where progressive, psychedelic music was on the rise. Headband are releasing a remastered version of their 1970s hit ‘Song For Tooley’. They performed this song along side The Rolling Stones in 1973. Their sound is very peaceful which accompanies their lyrics that speaks of nature and stepping outside of the dusty cities. The harmonies are spine-chilling, and when you listen to them you transcend this world and step into an imaginative world filled with waterfalls and meadows.
Sounding similar to Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, their progressive rock sound is still timeless today. ‘Song For Tooley’ is one of their slower, more peaceful songs that you could fall asleep to. This song will immediately grab your attention and you will want to stop whatever your doing and step into a more peaceful world. It is not often that a song can cause a transcendental state, so do not be one to miss out on revisiting this amazing track!

Headband became one of Australia’s progressive blues rock bands that formed in early 1971. The four-piece group (comprised of; bass guitarist Chris Bailey; drummer Joff Bateman; singer-songwriter and keyboardist Peter Beagley (later known as Peter Head); and singer-songwriter and guitarist Mauri Berg) 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".
Headband are distributed to the world digitally by Blue Pie Records.
