If there were any justice, Michael Head would be an acknowledged giant in any British rock history - but, alas he and his band, The Pale Fountains, never quite made it beyond footnote status. Why the hell didn't they make it? It was all going so well. They had everything - a massive record deal, loads of money behind them, critical acclaim, they were all gorgeous. Looking back, it's hard to resist the conclusion that Head's lovingly crafted , Latin-tinged pop songs - with their light, breezy choruses evoking the sunny optimism of the mid-60's and the orchestrated arrangements of Burt Bacharach - were released a decade too early. They ended being Arthur Lee's (From Love) backing band. He was their ultimate hero, so perhaps they didn't do too badly. Where the Bunnymen lyrics were very obscure, The Pale Fountains were more direct and honest about what they were saying. When they became Shack, they wrote a song called High Rise Low Life, which is a great title.
