Going deeper in Seattle sound...
The renewed interest in Temple of the Dog and Mother Love Bone is great. Mad Season is the next step. After that is Hater. I found this CD while working at a college radio station and immediately slipped it in my bag. The rhythm section of Soundgarden: Matt Cameron on drums and Ben Shepherd on bass. These two probably have made Soundgarden interesting and successful, and here they are with Andrew Wood's (MLB) brother. It's really cool, raw, folky and worth buying. Plus it has a picture of Layne Stanley wearing a dress sitting on a flower on the cover. Get it!
Good, unique record.
Punk-y at times and generally catchy, Hater is a very solid record with a unique sound.
Yet another one-shot Seattle-scene side project, this one involved Soundgarden members Ben Shepherd (bass) and Matt Cameron (drums), with original Monster Magnet guitarist John McBain and featuring Brian Wood, brother of the late Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew. ~ Steve Huey
