Jet HarrisToday we remember Jet Harris, the original bass player for The Shadows. He died on March 18 this year. We also have two new supergroups today. Middle Brother consists of members from musicians that normally play in Deer Tick, Dawes and Delta Spirit. They have a great new album, which I think surpasses everything they did in their individual bands. The other supergroup is Obits, which consists of former members of Hot Snakes and Edsel. We know their previous album I Blame You very well at the Little Lighthouse, and now they have a new one called Moody Standard and Poor.
