Supergroup Golden Smog: Happy Side Project

CD Reviews: Supergroup Golden Smog's 'Another Fine Day' by Ken Tucker
Fresh Air from WHYY, August 17, 2006 - Golden Smog is a side-project for veterans of rock bands such as Wilco, the Jayhawks, Soul Asylum, and lesser-known groups.

Golden Smog has put out three albums since 1992. The group's new collection, Another Fine Day, got our rock critic thinking about the pleasures and perils of musicians who moonlight from their day jobs.

I haven't been able to stream the story. It seems to be unavailable.

However, you can stream plenty of Golden Smog music from their MySpace page to start. Also, here is a Pandora station that I created for Golden Smog like songs.

For more information about Golden Smog, check out the Wikipedia page.
Golden Smog are a loosely connected group of musicians (arguably a supergroup) comprised, at various times, of members of Soul Asylum, The Replacements, Wilco, The Jayhawks, Run Westy Run, The Honeydogs and Big Star.

Doesn't that make your mouth water?
