During the '80's, The Windbreakers (along with R.E.M., the dB's, and Let's Active) were one of the leading lights of the southern pop edge of the college music scene. The band released a handful of albums and EP's (mostly on the great DB label out of Atlanta) that found critical acclaim in Billboard and Rolling Stone. Following a reunion in 2001, the band has returned to record 2 new tracks (one written by friend, Neilson Hubbard) with longtime producer (and drummer) Mitch Easter included on this release along with classics like New Red Shoes, Run, and That Stupid Idea. This anthology covers 2 decades of great jangle pop - 20 tracks in all!
Musical guests include Mitch Easter, Faye Hunter (Let's Active), Richard Barone (Bongos), Steve Roback (Rain Parade),, Matt Piucci (Rain Parade), Will Glenn (Rain Parade), Bruce Golden and Joe Partridge
Tim Lee and Bobby Sutliff have been songwriting legends of the South for over two decades, creating and playing some of the most well-crafted, elegant pop songs this side of Younger Than Yesterday. Together as the Windbreakers and separately as solo artists, the two are responsible for some twenty records. Time Machine is a should've-been-Greatest Hits with highlights from 20 years of recorded material.
About the Artist
The Windbreakers, one of the great could-have-beens of the first wave of the American underground. They could-have-been great. They could-have-been REM. They could-have-been ... The road to pop stardom is littered with couldas. The could-have-named themselves after the jacket... please let them have named themselves after the jacket. For nearly a decade, Lee, along with songwriting foil/friend/drinking pal Bobby Sutliff crafted distinctly American music that combined punk's ragged edge with all of Merseybeat's melodicism. That ragged edge came from Lee, the sturdy heart at the center of The Windbreakers. Where Sutliff preferred classic songs along the McGuinn/Hollies line, Lee always traveled a rougher road, combining equal parts Dylan with Tom Petty's Southern accents.
Naturally, they didn't sell. Naturally, the critics and fans loved them.
The band reflected "more of an American than English influence with strange melodic turns and a ragged Southern vocal style, " Ira Robbins concluded for their entry in The Trouser Press record guide.
