Dugout Chatter

Tinted Windows is the new supergroup featuring Taylor Hansen, James Iha from Smashing Pumpkins, Adam Schlesinger from Fountains of Wayne, and Bun E. Carlos.

Based purely on the concept of this group and the history of its members, and not on any actual music you may have heard by them, what do think of this group?

What do you think each band member is contributing aside from playing their instruments?

Where do they will rank in the hierarchy of supergroups (ie, above GTR but below the Continental Drifters)?

Who would you say is the greatest supergroup on paper?

Who would you say is the greatest supergroup in reality?

    holy shit. brian dawkins is a bronco according to the profootballtalk page of the sportingnews.

    wow. i feel a little older.

  2. I think they could be a Power Popping delight! On paper, anyway. Is Taylor the pretty girl Hansen brother or the big, Lurch-like Hansen brother? Or the little drumming one? Either way, I’d say they’d definitely be above GTR & well below The Continental Drifters.

    Schlesinger’s good at writing a catchy tune. Iha’s good at following orders. Bun E.’s good at smoking butts while playing the drums & at being Bun E. Carlos (plus, he has those giant sticks, if they should be needed). Depending on which brother Hansen we’re talking about, he could be the heart-throb element.

    I don’t know who’d be the greatest supergroup on paper, because dwelling on such matters makes me nauseous, but in the meatworld, though their recorded output was small, Ming Tea is the greatest supergroup ever. Or maybe The Continental Drifters, though they would have been much cooler had they taken the name The Incontinental Drifters.

    They will release exactly one CD.

    “What do you think each band member is contributing aside from playing their instruments?”

    Taylor Hansen = credibility
    James Iha = foreign markets
    Adam Schlesinger = only one who cares enough to keep the relationships going
    Bun E. Carlos = Rick Neilsen cameo

    Where do they will rank in the hierarchy of supergroups (ie, above GTR but below the Continental Drifters)?

    above The Firm
    below Damn Yankees

    “Who would you say is the greatest supergroup on paper?”

    USA For Africa

    “Who would you say is the greatest supergroup in reality?”

    Chickenfoot! (Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith -the drummer from the Red Hot Chili Peppers-).

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz…

    Hansen: novelty appeal masquerading as plea for respect
    Iha: Long fingers, delicate hands
    Schlesinger: Pop songwriting sensibilities and the chance to fulfill fantasies of power poppers wondering what FOY would sound like with Bun E. Carlos on drums!
    Carlos: novelty appeal masquerading as plea for relevance

    Where do they will rank in the hierarchy of supergroups (ie, above GTR but below the Continental Drifters)?

    Above The New Cars, below Utopia
