Just a quick reminder that Tenacious D's new album Tenacious D is now in stores. The album was produced by the two and only Dust Brothers and features some special ass-kicking performances by Mr. Dave Grohl, Page Mcconnell from Phish, Warren Fitzgerald from the Vandals, and Steve McDonald from Redd Kross.
You'll be able to hear long time concert fav's like "Fuck Her Gently," "Tribute" and "Lee." It will ROCK your socks off!!
Check it out!
2001-10-31 Maynard on Autolux
"Autolux... Includes Greg Edwards on guitar. Greg played bass in a band called Failure, which toured with us for several years. Those of you familiar with Failure's music may remember songs like "The Nurse Who Loved Me," "Dirty Blue Balloons," and "Flaming Umbrellas." These are just a few examples of Greg's level of inspiration and genius. Greg and his companions Carla and Eugene inspire me. Their dynamic is pure. They listen to each other. They are concerned about the art of writing and translating and it is apparent every time i see them perform. Website... autolux.net"
