After the breakup of Head, "Sager didn’t spend all the 90’s hoovering and changing nappies," according to Bristol Archives. “HEY DAD WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE 90’s?” one of Sager's sons asked. “EAT TRIPE HOP AND EXCRETE BRIT PLOP, SON,” he replied. Massive Attack and Portishead had set sail from Bristol, and Brittania's airwaves were ruled by the "lad rock" of Oasis.
Sager produced and played on a 1990 Rough Trade release by singer/songwriter Craig Davies called Groovin' On A Shaft Cycle, along with Head guitarist Nick Sheppard and RR&P drummer Steve Noble (who has since become a prolific jazz drummer).
Sager adopted the name CC Sager for a 1991 EP called "Fats Hustles The Pros and Cons". Bristol Archives later included that track on a digital CC Sager collection called Hey, Dad What Do Poets Eat For Tea? Pork and Opium Son, Pork and Opium. Dave Hunter played bass, and Steve Noble manned the drums. Head's Rich Beale sings two of the songs.
A second CC Sager set on Bristol Archives, called Prophylactic Fingertips, Cherry Lips & Other Unsung Songs, is less bluesy and more introspective than What Do Poets Eat For Tea.
The Creeping Bent label released the third CC Sager album, The Last Second Of Normal Time, on CD in 2003. Susie Hug of the band Katydids sang on the album. She was married to Katydids/CC Sager bassist Dave Hunter.
In 2006, Creeping Bent issued a digital album (under Gareth Sager's own name) called Slack Slack Music. Davy Henderson sings three of the songs, and the spirit of Beefheart is at play. The final track on this compilation ("So Fired Up") sounds like a classic Head song of drunken celebration.
