Still no more information about the upcoming WWC “World” tour…details [hopefully] soon.

To tide you over until there’s more information, I’ve added some new articles to the Articles section of the site: the Chart Attack article from August, the Seattle Times article from September and an EXCLUSIVE interview [published HERE before it’s even in the magazine!] of John McBain for the Czech magazine SPARK done for their November Issue. [BIG THANKS to Jaroslav for this article!] Word of a John McBain solo album? Go read about it!

Still working on the rest of the Tour pages…taking some time to recompile the data. I hope that I can add some dates to the “Upcoming” section soon. [HINT]

Oh well…back to it. Peace out, li’l honkies…

Rumors of a WWC tour are swirling around the Conspiracy. Once the details become more clear…you’ll hear about them here.

Hope they make it to Minnesota this time…

Also, due to the generosity of Chris Mackenzie [who back in the late 90’s had an unofficial page on WWC], I’ve received a lot of NEW articles and UPDATED past tour information that I’m integrating into the website! There’s a fantastic interview with John from the September 1995 issue of the Ptolemaic Terrascope that I’ve added to the Articles section of the page. More to come in the next few days!

Keep watching the page…

I have my review for “Wellwater Conspiracy” up on the album’s page in the Discography. It’s fair, balanced and objective. Yeah right. 😉

I also fixed the photos for the new album…had been using the “daybed” cover instead. Oops! I also added the vinyl edition of Declaration of Conformity to the Discography. I had the album this whole time…yet for some reason I never thought to add it! Doh!

I didn’t finish the rest of the Tour pages…however, I have received some interesting stuff that I will be adding to the site (hopefully) this week. Keep checking back to the page…

I have this feeling that I’m forgetting something…oh well.

Welcome to the new official WWC homepage. There’s lots of stuff awaiting you.

I have “Akka Raga” and “Late Night” available in the Multimedia section for your downloading convenience. Enjoy!

I’ve also added a few more of the Tour dates back onto the page. I’ll have the rest of them done [hopefully] by Sunday.

Also making it’s appearance back on the page is the Discography! Now updated with the new “Wellwater Conspiracy” album information! Lyrics will be back soon as well! Hopefully the guys will get me the lyrics for the new album…or I’m going to be forced to sit and listen to them myself again. Knowing how “accurate” I am…that should be interesting. Hilarity ensues!

Once I get they lyrics back up on the page…you’ll be able to find them in the Discography section, under each album’s info.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new album as much as I am! I’ll have my review of the latest release done by Sunday as well. And yes, it’ll be just as “interesting” as the one I did for “The Scroll”. 🙂

Signing off…

No….seriously….go buy it NOW!!!

There’s an article at The Seattle Times online [thanks Sara!]…click here to read it. If you have problems…I’ll have it archived on the site by the weekend.

Sorry there’s not more “fanfare” for the album release day…the new site launch and all the other GOODIES I had in store were delayed due to unforeseen connection glitches and other fun and interesting issues that I’m sure you’ll all be excited to hear about.

Yeah right.

Anyway…as soon as the “issues” get resolved, I’ll have the new WWC site [and all the stuff I promised you guys] ready to go! Keep watching the page…


Free and organic rock? Sounds like a Conspiracy

by Tina Potterf for Seattle Times Magazine

Wellwater Conspiracy is a mini-supergroup, its founding members brethren of two of the best known hard-rock and grunge bands of the 1990s.

But don’t expect a leaden, guttural rock sound from this Seattle band featuring former Soundgarden — and current Pearl Jam — drummer Matt Cameron and ex-Monster Magnet guitarist John McBain. (Glenn Slater of the Walkabouts is also part of the Conspiracy). Instead, Wellwater Conspiracy has built a cult-like following with a sound that bridges psychedelic and classic rock with punches of pop.

Wellwater Conspiracy: Up From The Daybed

by Dan “The Mouth” Lovranski
Chart Attack, August 2003

While you may not be familiar with the The Wellwater Conspiracy, chances are you’ve heard of the two principals that hold the group together. John McBain was the guitarist in Monster Magnet until 1993 and Matt Cameron has been the drummer for a couple of bands you may know, Soundgarden, and now, Pearl Jam.
