The Recoys were a band with some talent. Members included Hamilton Leithauser and Peter Bauer of The Walkmen, Hugh MacIntosh (a sometime drummer with the French Kicks), Damon Hege and Mike Sheehan. After the band bit the dust and fellow indie group Jonathan fire*eater imploded, members of each pulled themselves from their respective wreckages and formed the outfit, The Walkmen. Okay, maybe it wasn't as quick and easy or as messy as I have stated, but the outcome is the same. The Walkmen.
