Spectacular Bird

"Spectacular Bird arose from a songwriting collaboration between myself, Quentin Rowan and Lou Suarez. At its best, the band was a complimentary, if not always closely-harmonious, combination of three developing voices and writing styles. If anyone dug anything about what we were doing, it was probably that. But who knows, if such unfinished songs as 'Pudding Street Market', 'Hold On Honeycomb', and 'Gazebo Junction' were ever recorded, we might have achieved the elusive Fading Yellow sound of our dreams."

Chase those dreams boys.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Spectacular Bird.

Thanks for posting this. I miss Dave's fantastic fluid bass playing every time I hear Ted Leo, and I was really hoping Spectacular Bird would take off.
