Mad Season To Make Its Return?
Now, I’ve seen everything.
When Mad Season came out 67 years ago, I fell in love with that album. I will still whip it out from time to time to bring me back to my teenage years. That album and Temple of the Dog — another reunion I’d like to see materialize and produce a record.
Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready recently told Kentucky radio station WFPK that Mad Season could be making something of a return later this year.
I guess maybe they’ll be using Layne Staley and John Baker Saunders holograms then? That would literally break my heart.
McCready said that he plans to reissue the group’s one album, 1995’s Above, as well as a live record, and added that there is unreleased material in the vault that he would like to complete and release.
“We were trying to do another record, but it just didn’t work, Layne went off and did Alice in Chains and then he died,” Mike says.
“So, what happened was, I had to change the band name to Disinformation. From the Disinformation sessions, there are probably twelve songs, and out of that, probably eight that are pretty great. They need to be edited, but they’re all music, so we’re trying to find singers that are up to the caliber of Layne to do justice to it.”
McCready added that he hopes to have the singers in place soon and get the material to fans by year’s end.
Now, let’s go back to a simpler time…when I had pimples and a dick cherry.
