Golden Smog


Updated 7/18/2006

One-hour music intensive special spotlights the collaborative spirit behind Golden Smog, a roots-rock supergroup featuring members of Wilco (Jeff Tweedy), the Jayhawks (Gary Louris, Mark Perlman, Kraig Johnson),Soul Asylum (Dan Murphy) and Big Star (Jody Stevens).

The band’s members discuss the unusual history of Golden Smog, from its late-80s cover band origins to the sessions for “Another Fine Day” – their third album of original material. Between tracks from the new CD, these musicians also provide insights into how the music they make as Golden Smog is influenced by their own day-job careers in some of America’s most acclaimed and influential rock bands.

Hosted by Rita Houston (WFUV - New York), “Another Fine Radio Hour” also includes music from a recent in-studio acoustic performance by Gary Louris & Kraig Johnson.

Golden Smog's new CD, Another Fine Day is in stores from Lost Highway Records on July 18.
