Pearl Jam's Mike McCready Creates Fringe Score

Tonight's episode "Northwest Passage" was scored by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. Originally, the plan was to use the Pearl Jam song "Just Breathe", but according to Rolling Stone Magazine:
After some back and forth they wound up with something even better: guitarist Mike McCready offered to compose the score for the entire episode.  
 This is the first television score for McCready:
 "It's a completely different kind of songwriting than what I'm used to," he says. "Chris Chilton, who writes the music, gave me some ideas and I transcribed them on guitar. They told me they wanted some sort of Northwest, dark-type feelings. It's a very dark show, so I played a darker kind of guitar tone and even stuff that doesn't sound like guitar, and a little bit of piano."

I love how Rolling Stone can't even spell my name right. I guess they haven't heard of Google! And Mike worked on just 4 cues or so. He didn't write the whole episode.
