All's Well That Ends
Andrew McAlpine is a normal man with a few songs (and a plan). He loves the Beatles, Pete Townshend's guitar, and the magic words of Dylan, Tweedy, and Cohen. The Coalition of the Willing is a bunch of misanthropes, starlets, exiled rock and rollers, misplaced great minds, and general ne'er-do-wells that are more than willing to lend a hand (or a guitar, a voice, old keyboards, brass bands, noise, etc.) to a dude in need. When they converge, they record pop ditties about pyromaniacs, love songs to dead authors, existential rave-ups, and rock and roll laments about the mixed-up America of the new century, all recorded with tragic catchiness and glorious, sloppy panache. 'All's Well That Ends' is their first record, but bet to win that it won't be their last. The Coalition is always looking for new allies, but remember-if you're not with them, you're against them. Whose side are you gonna be on?
