Tinted Windows Supergroup to Play SXSW 09; Also Known as the "Oddest Combination of Musicians Ever"

My goodness, what a odd conglomeration eh, was there a rip in the space/time continum that nobody reported on? Did someone say, "Hey, let's mix together members of hit making bands from each decade and form a supergroup!" (You forgot the 80s though...I hear Brett Michaels might be free.)

And I don't even care if Taylor Hanson is the singer, I still hope we get a rousing version of "Dream Police."

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. (Source)
