Artist: Timbuk 3
Appears On (Mixes): As Promised, The Future!
Song Notes: (http://www.timbuk3music.com/) Timbuk 3 was one of those bands that never got any respect after their big, first-album single ... and managed to hold on for a good while anyway, making interesting, finely-crafted albums that I enjoy much more than any of the mainstream stuff that was coming out at the same time. (Pat MacDonald has done fairly well as a solo artist, as well – but his albums are damned hard to find on this continent.) This goes along with Men Without Hats as one of the few bands that I’ve loved as a teenager and still love today, with absolutely no gaps where I felt that I needed to ‘give them up’. - RobotMonster
