What's Adam Up To


Hey Folks,

I just surfed on over to fountainsofwayne.com because I was hoping and praying for a annoucement of a new release since they have been playing a lot of new tunes on their latest tour. NO SUCH LUCK:godwhy:

HOWEVER, The website did annouce that Chris recorded a track for the Mark Mulcahy tribute album called "Cookie Jar".

Then I got to thinking, I wonder what Adam is up to these days.... I mean the dude is none stop. He's got Fountains of Wayne, Ivy, Tinted Windows, he writes songs for several comdey central specials, co-wrote the music for "Cry Baby" the musical, occasionally writes songs for movie soundtracks like "that Thing you do" and Josie and the Pussycats" produces and writes songs for other bands like The Jonas Brothers, America, Dashboard Confessional, Bowling for Soup, and The Click 5. Soooo I did some more web surfing to see if he had anything of interest coming out and I found that in 2001 he co-wrote 2 songs for The Verve Pipe called "I Want All of You" and "Wonderful Waste". I HAD NO IDEA. Then on another website I saw that just this past June Adam and James Iha co-produced the latest "The Sound" record and he co-wrote 2 songs for them called "No One Sleeps When I'm Awake" and "Midnight Sun"....AGAIN NO IDEA he was involved with these bands until today.

I usually try and collect everything Adam and Chris write to hold me over until the next Fountains of Wayne record and I will be buying these tracks soon.

Does anyone know of anything else that Adam and Chris have been involved with?

I just can't get over how prolific Adam is. I wonder how he finds the time to do all his various projects.



I don`t remember, I don`t recall
I got no memory of anything at all......

He's either a robot or there are clones of him running around, writing music. Or maybe robot clones? I don't know, it is a mystery.

Adam and James Iha played a cover of Bobby Darin's "Splish Splash" on the "Because Of Winn-Dixie" soundtrack. Also, Adam and Jody played with the band Brookville on a few songs: "Crawling In Circles", "Hey You Hang On", "Today", and "Missed You Again". Don't remember who played on what song, but Adam was piano/organ, and Jody played guitar.

Do you know who sang the lead vocals for "Splish Splash". I know Adam sing a lot of Harmonies and backups in F.oW. but I have never heard him sing lead. I don't know much about James Iha vocal abilities but I can't picture him singing lead.

Also do you know if Adam had a hand in writing any of Brookville's tunes or did he produce it at all?

I also found out that Adam played the piano part for the Smashing Pumpkins song called "the Bell" it was a tune that Jame Iha had written while he was in the Smashing Pumpkins.

Another question for anyone who might know the answer.

According to Wikipedia (real reliable I Know...sarcasm) Chris is credited for singing on The School for the Dead's CD "A Telephone Built for Two". Does anyone know anything about this?

Adam also produced David Mead's second album, Mine and Yours.

Not sure if he wrote or performed on it though.

Mine and Yours

Adam produced several songs on David Mead's album. Girl On A Roof is by far the best. It's so damn catchy!

He also wrote a song for them, called I Am What I Am, and for a brief 8 minutes of my life, I actually thought I'd enjoy it... It sucked...
