Wellwater Conspiracy is really a trio that includes drummer Ted Dameron, vocalist Zeb, and John Paul McBain on electric guitar. If the initial two names audio familiar to Soundgarden enthusiasts, that’s because it’s non-e other than previous people Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd heading by aliases. Signing up for them is certainly ex-Monster Magnet member John Paul McBain, as well as the group destroys all preconceptions of just what a Soundgarden/Monster Magnet supergroup would appear to be. It’s understandable to believe that it might be like Sabbath, but their debut, Declaration of Conformity, is certainly anything but milling steel. The group initial came jointly in the medial side task Hater (with two various other people), who released an record on A&M in 1993. Although Hater’s audio is similar sometimes to Wellwater Conspiracy, it generally does not contain the same depth and concentrate. Some may dismiss Wellwater’s audio as “lo-fi,” however the tracks are documented with creativity, because the group manages to attain plenty of interesting, however classic, sounds on the debut. Shortly after the discharge from the band’s debut, Cameron recognized an invitation to fill up the lately vacated drum placement in Pearl Jam. Some assumed the move would spell the finish to Wellwater Conspiracy, but Cameron could find enough time to keep carefully the task afloat — 1999 noticed the discharge from the band’s sophomore work, Brotherhood of Electric powered: Operational Directives. This time around out, Shepherd wasn’t included, as Cameron dealt with the vocals furthermore to his typical drumming responsibilities. 2001 saw the discharge from the Scroll and its own Combinations, the very first Wellwater Conspiracy recording to become issued on the sizeable record label (TVT). The recording received favorable evaluations within the press, since it presented such unique guests as Eddie Vedder (outlined as Wes C. Adle) and Kim Thayil, with Shepherd returning onboard for a couple tracks.
