Filthy Friends is one more supergroup, consisting of former R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and Sleater Kinney singer Corin Tucker and members of other bands.

It has Buck’s indie and Tucker’s punk and it is a well done record. Not one of the very best of this year, but surely you will have a good time listening to it.

“It was the day Princess Diana died that ex-REM guitarist Peter Buck first saw Sleater-Kinney play. He immediately wanted to form a band with singer Corin Tucker. Twenty years on, the pair release this promising debut with band members borrowed from King Crimson and Seattle stalwarts Fastbacks and Young Fresh Fellows.” (The Guardian)
