Ex-Granddaddy guitarist to tour with Menomena

You probably don’t know the name All Smiles yet unless you’re a die-hard Granddaddy fan, but that’s the name of ex-Granddaddy guitarist Jim Fairchild’s new band. All Smiles’ debut, Ten Readings of a Warning, hit stores last week and Granddaddy fans shouldn’t be terribly surprised by the music Fairchild creates – quirky pop with a Flaming Lips influence.

Check out the video for “Moth in a Cloud of Smoke” (Windows Media) (Quicktime) (MP4)

All Smiles is gearing up for a run of dates with Menomena in June. Should be a great double bill.
