Apparently Orca Team‘s Leif Anders has gone into a government witness protection plan. He appears to be sending out communiques from somewhere in the Carribean under the name Tim McClanahan. Last year Orca Team seemed to totally go for it. They released a great album in Restraint and toured like crazy. Perhaps they burnt out a bit or maybe Interpol or the Russian mafia really are after them because they’re now on some kind of ‘hiatus’ and Leif is going by Tim and playing in a tropical band.

Week of Wonders is the new band. It’s a trio fronted by Leif, who has switched to a guitar that sounds like steel drums. Week of wonders takes the surfy, 50′s driven Orca Team sound and takes it to a secret island in the Bermuda Triangle, spices it up and gives it a mojito. The band have a five song EP called Failures up on Bandcamp available right now.

  1. Tim McClanahan plays bass in Week of Wonders – he is the guy also wearing white in the picture. He also plays in the band The Torn ACLs. Just to clarify. Thanks!

    • Well Leif, I guess your cover is now totally blown.

  3. Yeah! I get to play guitar finally!

  4. [...] odd; I immediately noticed Anders name missing from the credits (something that Toby from Finest Kiss latched onto right away as well). Instead, you’ll find Tim McClanahan (The Torn ACLs) on bass [...]
