One year ago, almost to the date I was browsing through a box of CDs at a friend's house. Out of curiosity I pulled out the CD The Moldy Peaches (Rough Trade, 2001). I borrowed the CD and several tracks ended up in the Top 100 2012. The Moldy Peaches were a band formed in 1999 around friends Adam Green and Kimya Dawson. They formed in New York, moved to Washington (state) and back again. A host of musicians, friends were part of the band, but they quit in 2004. They had made a name for themselves in the anti-folk scene that was happening in New York but their breakthrough came from the inclusion of the song Nobody Else But You in the soundtrack for the film Juno. This was in 2007, and the song hit the charts in 2008, seven years after it was recorded and four after they broke up (but still four years before I first heard of it).
