NIHE N Logo 2012Although you’ve not yet heard of The Almost IV, chances are that you will sooner or later.  Bucks Burnett, a music fan and proprietor of Dallas’ The Eight Track Museum, has put together that new band.  Not only will Bucks play in it, but so will Alejandro Escovedo, Peter BuckR.E.M., The Minus 5, The Baseball Project), Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5, The Baseball Project), Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz (both of The Talking Heads and The Tom Tom Club). The Almost IV was originally conceived as a Minus 5 tribute band, but it has become more than that.  The Almost IV has started recording with the goal of putting out an EP in the spring.
