I never questioned why James Iha wasn’t part of the last edition of the Pumpkins. But now at least we know he’d been working on another project. And he’s not the only familiar name in the band – add a Hanson brother (Taylor), a member of Fountains of Wayne (Adam Schlesinger) and Bun E. Carlos from Cheap Trick.
That’s quite an eclectic group. As of yet I haven’t heard of any leaks to get an idea of what musical direction they’ve taken together. Supposedly all will be revealed at SXSW next month. Ooooh, the intrigue!
What I find interesting is the number of other bands on MySpace named Tinted Windows. Do bands still get contacted to give up their name if a bigger band chooses the same name?
Side note: Congrats to Jeff for getting the Stabbing Westward connection to the video I posted last week! That’s Christopher Hall now singing in the band ‘The Dreaming.’
