The Wrens’ Kevin Whelan & Charles Bissell Trade Blows In New Interview About Breakup

Kevin Whelan, formerly of the Wrens, is releasing Observatory, his debut album as Aeon Station, next month on Sub Pop. Notoriously, half of the album was originally recorded for inclusion on the next Wrens album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2003’s widely beloved The Meadowlands, which was also supposed to be released by Sub Pop. But due to a falling out with Wrens bandmate Charles Bissell — who has been tinkering with the new Wrens music for more than a decade, and who was seeking more robust ...

‘It’s repulsive to me’: the bitter feud of indie-rockers the Wrens

Their 2003 album The Meadowlands earned them adulation, but a long-promised followup never arrived. Now their frontman is back as Aeon Station – and his former co-writer is very unhappy…Before taking flight as indie-rock heartbreakers the Wrens, Kevin Whelan and Charles Bissell were an awkward, prickly pair who met at a graduation party in an abandoned house. “I never had any friends or girlfriends,” the affable Whelan, 51, says with a self-effacing laugh from the New Jersey home he shares with ...

Aeon Station – “Leaves”

It appears that the Wrens will probably never release their long-promised follow-up to their much-loved 2003 album The Meadowlands. Everyone seems to be bummed about this, including the Wrens’ own Charles Bissell, but it is what it is. Bissel’s bandmate Kevin Whelan has split from Bissel and signed to Sub Pop, and he’s getting ready to release his first album under the name Aeon Station. The songs on that album include the ones that Whelan was planning to include on that next Wrens album. But on...

Everyone invested in New Jersey indie rock heroes the Wrens has been waiting well over a decade for Charles Bissell — the band’s singer, guitarist, resident producer, and de facto leader — to finish tinkering with the new album they’ve been promising since not too long after 2003’s masterful The Meadowlands. That includes Bissell’s Wrens co-frontman Kevin Whelan. In a New York Times interview last month, Whelan announced that, having run out of patience with Bissell’s perfectionist delays and co...
