Screaming Trees - Unreleased Demos

I’m a huge fan of these guys, personally I thick Mark Lanegan has the best voice in rock music. This recording here has songs not available anywhere. I don’t know where or when it was recorded but it has some of my favourite ST songs. One of my most loved and treasured recordings.

All members have moved on to other musical projects. Lanegan has released several highly acclaimed solo recordings, and was a part-time member of Queens of the Stone Age. Lanegan released Bubblegum, his latest solo album in August of 2004, and is working with former The Afghan Whigs leader Greg Dulli in a new project named The Gutter Twins as well as on-going collaborations under the Twilight Singers name. I have some songs from The Glitter Twins I’ll post later. In 2006, he released a collaboration with former Belle & Sebastian cellist Isobel Campbell entitled Ballad Of The Broken Seas to great critical acclaim.

Van Conner formed the band VALIS in 1998 with Dan Peters (of Mudhoney), Patrick Conner and Kurt Danielson. The group is currently on Small Stone Records and has released 4 albums. VALIS/Kitty Kitty, Vast Active Living Intelligence System, Head Full of Pills and 2005's Champions of Magic. After Dan and Kurt left the group they were replaced with Sean Hollister, Wes Weresch and Adrian Makins.
