Tres Mountains

I get why some folks don't like side projects, "supergroups," and the like. Sometimes they're rather uninspired, and worse, sometimes blatant cash-grabs. This week, however, I discovered (almost a full year after it's release) a project featuring Dug Pinnick (King's X), Richard Stuverud (The Fastbacks), and Jeff Amet (Pearl Jam), called Tres Mountains. You can find a download of their album, Three Mountains, on amazon.

I am really digging this record. It's definitely hard rock, but there's a lot of funk in there. I suppose you have to expect that with two bass players involved, although Dug handles the guitar and vocals. The lyrical content is just slightly off-the-wall, but also very pointed, and I dig that too. Here's live versions of a couple of my favorite tracks.
