Spun off

What Shellac looks like.

If the audio stops playing, press stop and allow time for the stream to load.

This week's programme is a brief listen to some of the bands that have spun off from some other bands. More specifically, from the hundreds that exist, 14 tracks from my collection that came to mind. The designation is a bit loose when it comes to the Dukes of the Stratosphear, which was more of a pastiche side project. And the Burritos were eclipsed before and after in popularity and sales by the Byrds. But I think you get the point. Some bands are bigger than others, some bands' mothers are bigger than other bands' mothers.
