Want to play musical connect the dots? See if you can keep up:
It seems all the rage right now to be in, start (or even dream up your very own) musical super-group. With bands like Chickenfoot (Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani and Chad Smith), Them Crooked Vultures (Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones and Josh Homme) and Broken Bells (James Mercer and Danger Mouse), it only makes sense to feature one of the original super groups — Broken Social Scene (Kevin Drew, Emily Haines, Leslie Feist, Jason Collett, Torquil Campbell and the list goes on and on and on…). Their latest Forgiveness Rock Record hit stores last Tuesday, and Indy Underground will feature another track off the album.
In the same vein, Jack White is also a man who has his hand churning many different projects such as The White Stripes, The Raconteurs and his most recent one The Dead Weather. Featuring himself (on drums!) Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs and Dean Fertita (who has worked with The Raconteurs and Brendan Benson (of The Raconteurs) and also with Queens Of The Stoneage (see: Josh Homme; above)).
Confused yet? Hope not, because there’s more.
Montreal’s Wolf Parade is back with their third album Expo 86 set to be released in late June. Spencer Krug is the brains behind the project and the same goes for his other current band Sunset Rubdown. He’s also in Swan Lake (another super-group containing Daniel Bejar (of Destroyer and Hello, Blues Roses) as well as members of Frog Eyes (also of Blackout Beach), and The New Pornogrpahers (which is a bit of a super-group in itself, but that’s for another day).
If you’re keeping track, we’ve listed THREE bands to be featured on tonight’s edition of Indy Underground, and branching off from them is SEVENTEEN different artists and/or bands. Woah.
Dizzy? Soon the world may look like this:
