“Project Runway” Winner’s Ex-Bandmates Get Ready To Cash In

sebelia.gifBecause most Idolator readers are hard-news junkies, you no doubt already know that capri-sporting punk (and former alt-rock musician) Jeffrey Sebelia was the winner on last night’s Project Runway. We congratulate Sebelia, and we eagerly await Weird Al’s musical tribute to the victor, sung to the tune of “Cecilia.”

But no one’s happier for Sebelia than the members of his mid-’90s rock band, Lifter, who reunited to provide a new song to his runway show last night (the song, “Swing,” is a perfectly okay bit of mope-rock, but once you hear it, you’ll understand why RuPaul’s fashion-biz royalty stream will never run out). “Swing” is streaming on the band’s MySpace page, but you’ll have to pony up if you want to download it: Even though the band was giving away all of their music for free on their website only a few weeks ago, they’re now charging unrealistically high prices for all of their tunes. We honestly wish them luck, but if they think people will pay $3 for a song they listen to on a television show for free, they’re still living in the ’90s.
