50 million Upcoming Shows discography images



Biography

50 Million is a colabiration
between the two Driver
brothers, Wade and John
(Shellhead)
. Over the last 15
years 50 million has released
more than 80 songs, on 9
different independent record
labels, performed hundreds of
shows all over the country,
and are still recording and
performing now in 2008. The
music varies from low-fi pop
ballads to
experimental noise
ensembles, from instrumental
loud and fast noise rock
numbers, to sweet acoustic
songs with beautiful lyrics.
50 million's earliest recording
was in 1978, and their most
recent release was in March
2005. Their first official live
show was at the Chameleon in SF
in 1995, after years of playing
togetther at home. Recordings
are done on a 4-track, each
brother doing one track at a
time while mailing the master
back and forth.
