According to Billboard.com, there’s a new band that exists on earth called Tinted Windows featuring former Smashing Pumpkin James Iha, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, handsome Hanson brother Taylor, and Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger.
Thanks to D for bringing this tidbit from pitchforkmedia.com to my attention. How does something like this happen? Were they all at the same bar or something? Is Taylor Hanson old enough to drink? And, most importantly: Yes, but will they have a super-cool, cooler-than-you chick bassist? I am free … (though I don’t actually know how to play … and I am not super-cool … and they have a bassist …).
In related news, I searched Google for any news on the alleged Flaming Lips /Aaron Sorkin Broadway musical, Yoshimi Battles Pink Robots. There have been no new posts since we first reported it, so I think this may become another missed chance like the Joss Whedon Wonder Woman script.
