Tinky McVieux // The Good
I don’t usually go the commercial route here, but I’ll make an exception today and point out that one of my bands, The Good, is doing our pseudo-annual reunion show on Saturday, February 5, at Martyrs in Chicago. It’d be great to see you there.
This is the band I was in from about 1994-2000, the most successful (in the tallest midget sense) of the fifty or so bands I’ve been in. We toured around the midwest quite a bit, got to NY and LA a few times. We generally had a very good time trying to be rock stars even though we were already about ten years too old at the time and neither pretty nor ugly enough to compete, if that makes sense.
"Tinky McVieux," here, is the opening track of our most acclaimed and successful CD release, Milky White. It got a little bit of college radio play in 1997. The disc was recorded at CRC and at Tony’s apartment (listen for his dog barking on the track), and distributed regionally by Whitehouse Records. I’m pretty proud of it.
Anyway, if you’re local and so moved, it’d be good (haha) to see you at Martyrs. We’ve been doing this show there every winter for about five years now. Here we are, fully glistening, post-gig a couple of years ago.
