Synopsis

Amazon.com
On their sophomore effort, the Wellwater Conspiracy create a multifaceted sound that lurks somewhere between the sonic realms of Seattle grunge and psychedelic garage. Showcasing the talents of ex-Monster Magnet guitarist John McBain and former Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, the Wellwater Conspiracy exist as an adventurous studio project steeped in '60s psychedelia. Besides playing a number of instruments, Cameron is an able singer who occasionally echoes the style of his old bandmate from Soundgarden, Chris Cornell. McBain exhibits an expansive guitar vocabulary, creating several acid-flashback moments amid the band's hard-rock haze. Using vintage electronic keyboards, fuzz-ridden guitars, tribal drumbeats, and melodic songwriting, the Wellwater Conspiracy hark back to a cosmic time when rock music was simpler, more mysterious, and plenty of fun. --Mitch Myers

CD Reviews

The wellwater is good.
Hogarth Hughes | Rockwell, ME | 12/30/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I just gave the AUDIOSLAVE disc another listen and I have to say, I'm still unimpressed and glad I stumbled across this. Being an old school SOUNDGARDEN fan, I felt the talent in that great band would strech far and wide. It is a shame that CHRIS CORNELL's projects have been somewhat less passionate than his work in SG, but It's a pleasure to see MATT CAMERON doing much more than playing skins for PEARL JAM. WELLWATER CONSPIRACY is the brainchild (or moonchild) of CAMERON and MONSTER MAGNET guitarist JOHN McBAIN, and they rock. In this, their second release, they meld psychedelic rock with funk and hooky alternative progression to make a solid recording that grows on you after every listen. CAMERON does vocals, and well too. His voice flows nicely with a lazy hamonic hook to the ever-excellent drumming he also provides. McBAIN I wasn't too familiar with prior to this but proves his skill and then some with some great string work. JOSH HOMME, the superhero from QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, stops by as well to provide vox on three of the tracks. If you like good alternative rock 'n roll, there is no conspiracy, this is the real deal. I can't wait to explore the other releases by this cool band, after hearing this record- you will too. Good stuff."
Even Better Than The First!

"John McBain has created a diverse album of incredible songs that brings garage rock into the next millennium. The range of influences explored here is impressive-- from mid-sixties cellar psych to early-seventies euro prog-- all recreated into a sound that should lead meaningful music into the next century. Intelligent, informed and accomplished work from the reclusive fountainhead of stoner rock. 5+ stars."
This album rocks.....properly

"unlike a lot of the mimic bands out there today..that pretty much all use the same garage lo fi type influence...the wellwater conspiracy stands alone as an album with decent production values...and tunes that rock rather nicely! way different from anything the members have previously done...its a pleasant suprise to say the least....! :) try and get ur hands on the limited vinyl release....(its how it should be played!)"
