Karen OMG: Stellar cast for NASA record
Tom Waits, Karen O, John Frusciante, M.I.A., David Byrne, various members of Wu Tang Clan, KRS-One, Lovefoxxx... all will appear on one new record.
NASA is the name of the collaboration between Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon, the former being the brother of noted film director Spike Jonze. Frere Spike has obviously been pulling some fairly heavy strings.
