Song of the day: Major – "Smart Casual"

September 6, 2010

Here’s a band I know nothing about, with a song that is lyrically a complete mystery (they’re cryptic) – but it doesn’t stop me enjoying it:

Major – “Smart Casual” (2003)


“Smart Casual” appears on The Bliss Domestic (2003) which is, as far as I can tell, Major’s only album. The song also appears on the compilation Lost Weekend: A Celebration of Australian Independent Power Pop, Volume 2 (2003) (which is where I heard it).

And I still don’t know anything about Major. Hang on – that’s not strictly true. I know that they Australian. (At least I think they’re Australian.)

Although I couldn’t find out any biographical information about Major, or even photos of the band, I found a chord chart for “Smart Casual”. Weird.
