My theory on [‘Overblown’] is, like, I have a platinum plaque of the Singles soundtrack. So at least a million people bought that record. And I think Piece of Cake sold 150,000. That’s our biggest-selling record. So my take on it is, like, 850,000 people heard us and said, ‘No.’

Jerry Cantrell, from Alice in Chains, appeared in Jerry Maguire, playing a CopyMat clerk and possibly a messiah. He was fearless. He nailed the performance in two takes, earning a blitz of high-fives from co-star Tom Cruise. Sometimes the reckless naturalism of a relaxed musician is just what the scene needs.

Kudos to Seattle Weekly for its interactive map of Debbie Hunt’s insanely circuitous bike route in the film Singles.

Brooklyn duo Telephoned’s glitchy, electro take on the Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You.” Looking forward to seeing what other Singles soundtrack gems they cover on their upcoming EP.

With our new cover-up EP “Singles”, we make a call back to the future and give the Telephoned treatment to 4 songs from the OST of the classic Cameron Crowe film. Like we did with Clams Casino on our popular “U Don’t Have To Call” EP, this time the catalogue of immensely talented up-and-coming Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth provides the backdrop.

Today we’re giving you “Nearly Lost You”, originally by Screaming Trees, as a teaser. Next week we’ll be dropping the rest of the songs, a video AND playing a free show at Public Assembly in Brooklyn on 11/29! hold the line…

When Billy Corgan was completely broke, I got him a movie deal with Cameron Crowe where he made $40,000. He was very happy about that, and he was specifically happy about the $40,000. So next time you see him, tell him owes me my $40,000 back.

Twenty years later, McCready says the Singles soundtrack is the one record he has up on his wall at home in Seattle. ‘I remember writing “State of Love and Trust” with [Pearl Jam bassist] Jeff Ament,’ he laughs. ‘I remember stealing the riff from some guy at a party somewhere here in Seattle. Well, just that one chord. The riff I came up with, but the one chord—it’s like a C chord where the A is—I had never seen that before. I didn’t steal it, I _appropriated_ it.’
