Timbuk 3
Where are they now? Pat MacDonald and his wife Barbara K have since divorced and Pat has taken up residence in Europe, where he has recorded several Albums for Ulftone Records. Begging her graces is a haunting album heavy on the Accoustic Guitars and Middle Eastern vibe, and his most recent CD is PM does DM, a collection of Depeche Mode covers that is simply excellent.
Barbara K. has her own solo project out now. Used to be available at, but her domain has not been renewed.
