HEATER is a three-piece Columbia super group, if such a thing exists. Heater's guitarist and lead singer, ZACH "ZZ" MCLUCKIE, used to be a member of CAVE and SNEAKERS), among others. Heater's bassist / second guitarist, JEREMY “JERUSALEM” FREEZE also plays guitar in JERUSALEM and the STARBASKETS, and both he and Heater's drummer, JON “WUJJ”, formerly jammed together in CALIFORNIA RAISINS (their only release was a split 10-inch with Cave, also on Permanent). God and Hair is a super upbeat, melodic pop record in essence, but as mentioned before, these guys come from a very DIY background. It's got some fast repetitive lo-fi punk rock jams with reverb enhanced vocals similar to those found on the Sneakers Children Into People EP, and some Clean-esque pop elements, but it's also got tracks with a great laid back summertime '90s alt-pop vibe not too dissimilar from the least noisy '90s moments of Sonic Youth and Sebadoh. All of these elements come together and make for a unique sound, and make for one hell of a summertime DIY pop jammer.
