Band BiographyEdit

Often maligned but million selling pop duo The Carpenters had many hits, though very little critical success. Many people made fun of their clean-cut image and traditional sound in an era defined by its experimentation and excess. [[Karen Carpente had released a solo record as well, although it never reached the successes she had had in the Carpenters. The band ended when she died of Anorexia in 1982. A film by Todd Haynes, Superstar, explored their career using Barbie Dolls. It was sued out of existence by [[Richard Carpente, ostensibly because it used uncleared recordings of Carpenters songs, although speculation abounds that it was actually because it implied he and their parents were at least partially (if not wholly) to blame for Karen's death. [[Richard Carpente is still performing and working in the music industry. Most recently, he contributed a string arrangement on "[[Gomenasai:t.A.T.u.|Gomenasa" from t.A.T.u.'s new album [[Dangerous And Moving:t.A.T.u.|Dangerous And Movin.
