The World's Greatest Super Group? No, Not at All

Announcing possibly the weirdest supergroup ever formed, Tinted Windows. Featuring former Smashing Pumpkin James Iha on guitar, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, 1/3 of Hanson (Taylor), and Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger, it promises to be...weird.

It turns out that Iha and Schlesinger own a recording studio together, so that explains half of it. And then I supposed Cheap Trick ain't so bad, and it's not like there's a great number of concert gigs and album recordings to get in the way of Carlos' free time. But a Hanson brother? Does this mean Hanson became really cool behind my back?

My theory? After the demise of both the Pumpkins and A Perfect Circle, Iha is just wandering around Los Angeles looking for anyone who will play with him...

Somewhere the bassist for Dishwalla, the keyboardist for the Allen Parsons Project, the drummer for Chumbawumba and the guitarist for Counting Crows weep...
