It's called DRUMGASM . That's the new side project from Pearl Jam / Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron , along with Death Grips / Hella drummer Zach Hill and Sleater-Kinney / Wild Flag drummer Janet Weiss . And now you can hear their entire self-titled album on SPIN.com .
Weiss says that she came up with the concept for the album, which features all three drummers playing together at the same time. “I would say friendship and mutual admiration was the genesis,” she tells SPIN. “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.”
She adds that the recording sessions were fruitful as the band had amassed a number of lengthy takes by the time they parted ways. “We ended up playing for these long improv pieces,” she explains. “Some were 20 minutes, some were 30 minutes, some were 40 minutes.”
Weiss notes that she hopes the group will hit the road to promote the release sometime soon. “My dream is to go on tour and play some of this stuff live,” she notes. “We would have a great time. That's my dream tour.”
