From Billboard: http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/iha-carlos-hanson-schlesinger-form-band-1003942166.story

Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Hanson's Taylor Hanson and Fountains Of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger have formed a new band, Tinted Windows.

The group has recorded its debut album at Stratosphere Sound Studios in New York, which Schlesinger and Iha co-own with Ivy's Andy Chase. The set is expected this spring on a label to be announced.

Tinted Windows will play its first major show at Billboard's South by Southwest showcase, to be held March 20 at Pangaea in Austin, Texas.

PLEEEEZE let us bring a Hanson brother to Coachella.

sounds kinda cool, actually.

I would think so too, Alec, except they're called "Tinted Windows" (wtf?)

James Iha and Taylor Hanson, together at last.

Uh... WTF?

If this band was a person, it would have the biggest vagina in the history of the world.

I don't think there are any better words to describe this band than those. Should the thread be finished then?

I love this comment at the RS site:

I'm sorry everybody, I don't know what I was thinking. My bad.

And is it just me, or does James look like a 50 year old tranny?

02-24-2009, 01:06 PM
man, i'm a huge pumpkins fan (who isn't) and this shit fucking SUCKS

02-24-2009, 01:15 PM
If you heard Iha's solo album, you knew this would be lame vag rock. This is precisely why Iha is not needed if Billy decides to make good new music as the Smashing Pumpkins.

It's not that bad, it just sounds like everything else Adam Schlesinger has ever written. Mediocre power pop.

The thing that really bothers me about this is Bun E. Carlos. Does he not realise that he's just poorly ripping off his own band?
