Veruca Salt get on the green 

Try not getting swept along by Veruca Salt's classic 1994 earworm Seether, which saw Chicago's original indie four-piece – named after the bratty rich kid in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – score a top 10 spot on US singles chart Billboard. Lifted from the band's debut album American Thighs (the title surely lifted from a line in AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long), Veruca Salt followed up their debut album with 1997's solid Eight Arms To Hold You, but not before dropping '96's classy Blow It Out Your Ass It's Veruca Salt EP. More albums followed, the line-up changed and there was a lengthy hiatus until 2013, when the original line-up of Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Jim Shapiro and Steve Lack saddled up again. Now Veruca Salt is heading back to Australia for headline shows next year at Sydney's Metro Theatre on March 1, and 170 Russell in Melbourne on March 9. Adding extra salt to an already tasty 2018 Day on the Green, Veruca Salt will also join the Living End, Spiderbait​, the Lemonheads, Tumbleweed and the Fauves at six outdoor shows. Tickets for Veruca Salt's Sydney and Melbourne headline shows go on sale September 20 (for Frontier members) and September 25 for general public sales.

album of the week

Together Pangea
Bulls and Roosters
(Nettwerk Records)
★★★½

There's a vintage pop feel to California quartet Together Pangea that's refreshing. Previous albums in their near decade together straddled garage rock and lo-fi vibes in a similar mould to fellow Pacific coast rocker Ty Segall​, but there's a distinctly upbeat '60s influence on Bulls and Roosters that keeps these 13 tracks spinning. The catchy Sippy Cup serves up a sunny taste of what's to come, the slower Money On It is a winner and the title track shows off some cool songwriting skills. Peppy guitars and William Keegan's up front vocals on Kenmore Ave. bring the whole package together.
