Matt Cameron, Janet Weiss, & Zach Hill Are Drumgasm

Pearl Jam’s Matt Cameron, Sleater-Kinney/Wild Flag’s Janet Weiss, and Hella/Death Grips’ Zach Hill have formed drums-only supergroup Drumgasm. The news was hinted at last night via a post on Wild Flag’s Facebook page with the status update, “DRUMGASM is what happens when Matt Cameron, Janet Weiss, & Zach Hill set up together in a room & commence to EXPLODE. Record news tomorrow!” but their collaborative album is currently available for pre-order here. The work, which was recorded in one session on tape, has been called “the Niagara Falls of sound…the experience is deeply calming, as the sound becomes a river, sometimes roaring in a torrent, other times opening up to reveal subsurface details, but always moving, flowing…people spend all day watching rivers flow by like this, maybe pretending to try & catch fish.” There is no official release date or any music to preview, but with Hill’s track record as a frequent participant in Boredoms’ massive experimental percussion performances Boadrum, we should expect something clean and exciting.
