There are supergroups and then there are SUPERGROUPS  – Big Walnuts Yonder is the latter. Finding out about this band is like a kick in the gut; how can so many insane people be in the same band? The lineup consists of Minutemen’s Mike Watt, Wilco’s Nels Cline, Tera Melos’ Nick Reinhart and Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier. Needless to say, the band has an incredible pedigree, traversing genres, and with music that is every bit as crazy as you could imagine.

The first single,”Raise the Drawbridges?”, is as unhinged as you can imagine, and I can’t wait to check out the rest of the album.

Consequence of Sound has a really good interview with the group, and pre-orders are up now for the band’s May 5th debut.
