Take a close look at that picture. Recognize anyone? Yeah you do. If you were a young folk in the 90's...yeah, really, you do. This is a photo of the band Tinted Windows who will also be known as one of the most random assortments of musicians ever collected. From left to right: James Iha (formerly of Smashing Pumpkins), Taylor Hanson (mmmBop, self-explanatory), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), and Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick). You're smiling right now, aren't you? Because it's so ridiculous and you've secretly been rooting for a Hanson brother to take on something new for years. I know. It's your deep dark secret.
Tinted Windows are a high energy pop rock band. Simple and straightforward. Not exactly a thrilling collaboration, but hey, now you can tell your friends.
Listen to them here.
