The Stinky Puffs


The Stinky Puffs were an early 90’s rock band started by then seven year old Simon Fair Timony, then-stepson of Jad Fair, and by Cody Linn Ranaldo, son of Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo. 

In 1995 The Stinky Puffs released an LP titled A Little Tiny Smelly Bit of…the Stinky Puffs. The album included a song called, ”I’ll Love You Anyway” which was Simon’s personal response to Kurt Cobain’s death, who was a big fan of the band.  Also included on the disk are four live tracks from a July, ‘94 YoYo a Go Go festival performance. Timony performed songs with Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan on guitar, Krist Novoselic on bass and Dave Grohl on drums.

Sure they had a bit of help from some pretty famous, way cool parents, but it is a pretty great accomplishment nonetheless!  Come to tomorrow’s Smarten Up workshop with Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow at Thompson LES and maybe your child will be inspired to do a little bit of the same … there are just a few spots left to RSVP ASAP at
