(oops. Sorry about the wrong track - we fixed it!)
By all accounts, Whiteout may have been together for a little less than a year. Busting on the scene in the wave of Brit-pop and Guitar bands in 1991, they scored in 1995 with a single (Jackie's Racing). Opened for Oasis and Pulp and got a lot of attention. And then it curiously went downhill from there. Their lead singer left shortly after and then they carried on as a three piece. Did one BBC Session for John Peel (which I may put up in the future). Recorded some more, got bad reviews, finally packed it up in 1998 and went separate ways. As always, a depressing end to an auspicious start.
Tonight's track, Shoot Me comes during the halcyon period when they were riding the crest of the popularity wave and just before they hit.
And so went the 90's.
