Whoa, it’s doubtful few saw this coming: the return of Welcome, the Seattle rock group that issued a sneakily great album on England’s prestigious FatCat Records in 2006 titled Sirs, and then faded away, leaving a trail of tears in their wake. (Good news: Dragnet and Luxury Products are reissuing Sirs on vinyl.) Featuring bassist/vocalist Jo Claxton of the late, lamented Universe People, drummer/Luxury Products boss Jon Treneff, guitarist/vocalist Pete Brand, and guitarist Mike Wurn, Welcome flaunted smart, angular tunes that seemed to emanate as much from New Zealand’s Flying Nun imprint circa 1987 as from ’00s Seattle. Sirs is one of those cult releases whose corkscrewing hooks really coalesce in your mind on third listen (in the manner of early White Fence, say), after which you become a lifelong proselytizer for the record.
