    Tinted Windows...New Supergroup?

    Tinted Windows: Your New Favorite Supergroup?
    Posted Thu Feb 26, 2009 11:51am PST by Craig Rosen in Who's Next?



    The concept of a supergroup is often a dodgy proposition. Sure in the mid-to-late '60s, when the term was first coined, there was Cream, Blind Faith, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. But since then, a supergroup is rarely greater than the sum of its parts.

    Remember the Firm (both the mid-'80s Paul Rodgers-Jimmy Page combo and the late-'90s hip-hop posse featuring Nas and Foxy Brown)? Didn't think so. How about the Babys-meet-Journey outfit Bad English or the spawn of the Meat Puppets, Nirvana, and Sublime known as Eyes Adrift?

    Sure there are better super groupings, including the Raconteurs, but then there is a long-list of the ill fated, such as Rage Against Soundgarden, also known as Audioslave, and the STP-greased Guns N' Roses refugees in Velvet Revolver.

    All this supergroup introspection was inspired by the announcement last week that Hanson's Taylor Hanson, former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Fountains Of Wayne and Ivy mainstay Adam Schlesinger, and Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos have gotten together and formed Tinted Windows.

    Catchy, if somewhat derivative. As usual, Bun E. is rock solid.

    I read the other day ( I wish I remember where ) that is was as if "a record executive drew names out of a hat" in reference to this group.

    My thoughts exactly. Good luck to em.

    Taylor Hanson - great singer and songwriter.
    James Iha - well, I like the Pumpkins.
    Adam Schlesinger - mad props to AS. After all, he gave us "That Thing You Do!" and "Stacy's Mom".
    Bun E. Carlos - 'nuff said.

    I'll TOTALLY buy this, see the show, and buy the shirt. Thanks for the heads-up, SNIC!

    flame me all you want but Hanson turned out to be a damn good band. Their record Underneath is one of my favourites. They worked with some stellar people on that record too, including Matthew Sweet and David Garza.

    Taylor is a damn good singer and musician and the rest of this lineup is damn good too so I'll over this.

    I got nothing but respect for Hanson as a band and anything they get involved with I'll be interested in hearing.

    I love how people IMMEDIATELY just rip these guys because of their former band affiliations.... I personally like the way it sounds. I'll pick it up!
