I wrote about SF indie / power pop band the Mommyheads as a “lost gem” about a year ago. In the late 90s I listened to their self-titled final album so many times it was ridiculous. I’d sing along to it in the car and made mixtapes with songs from it on them.
I initially found out about them–like many bands that I liked at that time–about a week before they dissolved, so I never got to see them live and all new (to me) material was just their older albums.
Well according to their myspace, they’re are back! Wow!
After a 10 year hiatus, the Mommyheads are working on a new record which is slated to be out later this year. We’re back with the same lineup – Adam, Mike, Jeff, and Dan – and plan to play a few shows in early September. The album will include many previously unreleased tracks, a couple of new (and, we think, better) versions of songs from our Geffen Record, one or two remixed singles, and – yes – some new material.

They even have a gig scheduled at Cafe du Nord:

Snap up those tickets.
