Lost Footage From The Postal Service Band Try Outs!

By: Julie Gerstein / March 5, 2013

Ha! Not really, but this is a reimagined glimpse back to the Postal Service’s formative years. In honor of the 10th anniversary of their debut album, we have PS member Jimmy Tamborello auditioning members for the spot that would eventually be taken by Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard (all of that was just too twee for words). Up for the job? Weird Al, Aimee Mann, Moby, Duff McKagan, Paige Hamilton from Helmet, Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate, Blink-182’s Tom Delonge and a slew of others.

Unrelated: Ben Gibbard has the largest, squarest head I’ve ever seen.
