Head Candy


Head Candy won a battle of the bands which gave them a record deal with Link Records distributed by Hollywood/Elektra/Warner. This band had Doug Roberson & Jim Viner from Iowa City, Iowa, who are the current guitarist and drummer, respectively, for The Diplomats of Solid Sound as well as Mike Sangster who came from the Des Moines-based band The Hollowmen who had a couple of records out in the late 80’s. Dubuque, Iowa native JIm Vallet, whose current project is entitled Track a Tiger (Chicago), rounded out the line-up on bass. Read more on Last.fm

Dubuque, Iowa native JIm Vallet, whose current project is entitled Track a Tiger (Chicago), rounded out the line-up on bass. This band was praised for its use of layered guitars and unique tunings.

The resulting album Starcaster (released 1991) is an album still considered to be one of the better efforts of this period and area. At the time there was a lot of speculation that Iowa City was going to blow up like another Athens or Seattle given the shear number of bands the area had to offer. Head Candy also had a video shown on MTV’s 120 Minutes. Read more on Last.fm.
