Stream Full 'Drumgasm' Album
Drummers Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), Zach Hill (Death Grips, Hella), and Janet Weiss (Sleater Kinney, Wild Flag) recorded an album together back in 2009 under the moniker of "Drumgasm," which is available for streaming below (courtesty of SPIN). As Consequence of Sound notes, the album will finally be released on August 27th via Jackpot Records. Weiss spoke to SPIN about the genesis of the all-star project, which she refers to as "modern, psychotic drum circle." "I would say friendship and mutual admiration was the genesis. I had toured with Zach. Quasi toured with Hella, so we had spent a month together watching each other play. Obviously Zach is an utterly unique drummer. After a month you're just beginning to understand what he's doing [laughs]. "So I've spent some time studying him. And Sleater-Kinney, around the same time, was doing some touring with Pearl Jam. Matt Cameron had always been one of my favorites - I'm a huge Soundgarden fan. So getting to meet him and know him and share a stage with him was a really big deal for me. We forged a friendship, and Matt and I would sort of marvel about Zach - as probably every drummer on the planet does. I just came up with the idea: What if we just rented a studio for a weekend? We didn't have any plan as to what was gonna happen. "We ended up playing for these long improv pieces. Some were 20 minutes, some were 30 minutes, some were 40 minutes. In the beginning, it's like, 'Let's try something slower,' and then it just erupts into what it sort of became most of the time ... which is total cacophony. It was like a wild animal you couldn't hold back. No matter where we started, we ended up all sort of going crazy."
