about

Polyester Yesterday brings together a decade's worth of singles, EPs, b-sides, video soundtracks and the theme song to their cable access TV show. For years, Orange Hat was content to hand out home-made CD-R's and VHS tapes with the kind of limited edition 3D covers and scratch-n-sniff extras that make collectors giggle with glee. Now, after languishing in the vaults for years, this stuff is finally getting the love it deserves.

Around the turn of the century, as we turned our attention more towards the visual side of our twisted world, Orange Hat's flood of new music slowed to a trickle. Fortunately, these precious song droplets nourished our fan base through limited edition discs, a 40-minute magical mystery movie, and 35 episodes of our insane cable access show. The vintage wardrobe of the mad hatters has finally been flung open, all the contents have been newly pressed and martinized, and they fit perfectly.

Smart power pop meets the groovy sound of the psychedelic sixties in Atlanta-based band Orange Hat. But, the Hat is more than a band - it's an ongoing multimedia circus. In addition to albums full of songs with cool harmonies and catchy hooks, Orange Hat's canon of insanity includes a twisted TV show with an expanded cast of freaks. Step right this way... ... more
