The Weightlifters is the brainchild of Chicago's Adam McLaughlin, former guitarist for the Philly power pop band, Idle Wilds, which was signed to the Ardent record label by Big Star drummer Jody Stephens in the mid 90s. In addition to releasing a couple full-length records, Idle Wilds notably appeared on the well-received "Poptopia!: Power Pop Classics Of The '90's" compilation with bands like Jellyfish, The Posies, and Matthew Sweet, as well as on the recently-released Big Star tribute album, "Small World", with Wilco, Teenage Fanclub and others. -CD Baby
