At the Billboard showcase on March 20 at SXSW, the world will be, um, treated to a performance of a new supergroup called Tinted Windows, which is comprised of former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Taylor Hanson from Hanson, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, and Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger.
The group has apparently already recorded an album, and are looking for a label. I'm guessing the material will mostly be power-pop, but it might (likely) end up being classified as "awful." [Billboard via Daily Swarm]
