Webster - Nugget Ep

Marco has sent me two cd's from 1995, both are Brisbane
bands and both rather good.
I remember this band from the time, who can forget a name
like Webster.
Thanks Marco.
Now lets hear from Marco.


Webster were a fantastic pop rock band from Brisbane
who later
made the move to Melbourne before disappearing.
I remember seeing them live only once at Brisbane's Treasury
Hotel.
They delivered. They put out 4 EP's and one full length
all of which
I can say were brilliant.
This is their second self-titled release and
the one that
introduced me to the band. This is heartfelt, fun, clever
and
expertly delivered pop that should have found a bigger
audience.
Damn!

thanks for the post. i have this CD languishing in a box in Brisbane. i haven't been to Brisbane since 2003. it's nice to hear it again

also been racking my brain to think of how many times i saw Webster; i well remember a show at the Orient, maybe 1996-7, and a couple of ZZZ Market Days.

Yep I have this one and a cpl other Webster Eps lurking somewhere, including one with their take on a Rolling Stones Album (off the record???)
From what I remember they relocated to Melbourne and were pretty much never seen again.

hi. My Uncle was the lead guitarist is the band Webster. Correct, they moved to Melbourne and had a few years down there to relative sucess. However, eventually some of the members were getting married, my uncle included and needed to curtail there rocking somewhat to raise a family. It's great to hear that he was appreciated, i'll let him know

Saw them support Buffalo Tom at the POW Melbourne circa 1998. Great live band and i remember they did a cracking cover of Guided By Voices Bulldog Skin.
