Underground Lovers - The Rerun

Underground Lovers - The Rerun
Formed in 1989 by high school friends Vince Giarrusso and Glenn Bennie, the Undies experimented with different styles and line-ups prior to 1990’s breakout self-titled album.

The serene vocals of Philippa Nihill offered yet another color, compared to Giarrusso's rhythmic leanings. On-stage, Nihill and Giarrusso swapped both vocals and keyboard duties, supported by bass and drums, and encased by Bennie's unique guitar approach.

Affectionately known as “The Undies”, their live shows became famous for their signature use of looped sound effects, heavily layered shoegaze guitar rhythms and psychedelic lighting.

Their extensive discography and musical journey has seen a colourful path; from winning the ARIA Award for Best New Artist to further ARIA nomina- tions; a Triple J Hottest 100 favourite and unforgettable supports for The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and New Order; to their 1992 sophomore al- bum Leaves Me Blind named as the 54th greatest Australian album in the 2010 published book 100 Best Australian Albums.

Like all good Undies albums, Staring At You Staring At Me defies singular analysis. Elements of pop, shoegaze, synth-rock and pounding bass feature throughout, but rarely at the same time.

About this track...

Influenced by a mixture of late ‘70s Joy Division and ‘80s pop, the third sin- gle from said new album, ‘The Rerun’ sees the undies in a buoyant mood celebrating “Faceless users come undone”. Clearly a reference to either drug addiction, ALP factional politics or the Trumpettes!
