Guesting on Aimee Mann’s excellent new album @#%&*! Smilers is McSweeney’s czar Dave Eggers, who whistles on the song “Little Tornado” (at least a little bit, anyway). He’s not bad! He’s certainly no Axl Rose or anything, but it’s good to know he’s out there in case some tragic accident should ever befall Peter, Bjorn, or John.
