free music the legendary Thisway

Thisway was formed in 1997 by singer Brandon Wilde and guitarist Chris Foley; drummer Andy LaDue joined the line-up in time to record the group's first demo, and with the subsequent addition of bassist Len Monachello, the roster was complete. After generating a buzz on the New York Club scene, Thisway eventually signed to Reprise, issuing their self-titled debut LP in the spring of 1999. And what a fantastic dynamic slice of sophisticated power pop joy it is. Sadly it seemed this was to be their only release. Brandon Wilde recently put out a great solo album Sons From The Deep Sleep while Len Monachello formed the marvellous All Night Chemists and it is to his rather excellent site I direct you now for a treasure trove of Thisway music for free download. Wonderful stuff. Four downloadable tracks and album streams of All Night Chemist's rather splendid music are there too.
