Let’s get you caught up….because Pat Macdonald, chances are if you’re over 25 years old or have a firm knowledge of 80′s one-hit wonders, you already know. In 1986 a two piece named Timbuk3 came across the billboard charts with “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”. You may also recognize him visually from another 80′s release, this time in the cinema history. In the 1988 remake of D.O.A. (Dennis Quaid) Macdonald can be seen during a 6th street bar scene performing with wife Barbara as the formation Timbuk3. The unique brand of folk and funky acoustic pop seems to have carried over into his solo career.
