    But of course! I realise these bands are household names here in the antipodes, and maybe less so in the US... but they would still be well known, I hope. If not, I apologise!

    WELCH PIT / SNOOZER DUDES
    - group / group
    - second group, formed after the breakup of the first, recently re-formed (sans original drummer, who died not too long ago)
    - first group's name is theme-related, with a phonetic spelling to reference their country of origin
    - if a lot of people experienced the symptom described by the first band name, then the second band name might describe the situation at the hair salon!
    - the prime mover of both bands has a surname more fish-related
    - the first band's biggest hit was probably "I Got You".
    - the above-mentioned leader has a live solo album with guest performers Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, and Johnny Marr of The Smiths
