50 Million is a colabiration between the two Driver brothers, Wade and John (Shellhead). Over the last 16 years 50 million has released
more than 80 songs, on 9 different independent record labels, performed hundreds of shows all over the country, and are still recording
and performing now in 2012. The music varies from low-fi pop ballads to
experimental noise ensembles, from instrumental loud and fast noise
rock numbers, to sweet acoustic songs with beautiful lyrics. 50 million's earliest recording was in 1978, and their most
recent release was in March 2005. Their first official live show was at the Chameleon in SF in 1995, after years of playing
togetther at home. Recordings were done on a 4-track, each brother doing one track at a
time while mailing the master back and forth.
