    Default Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) Duff McKagan form new band

    Song in link.

    DUFF MCKAGAN To Tour With WALKING PAPERS - Sep. 19, 2012
    PEARL JAM guitarist Mike McCready and ex-GUNS N' ROSES and VELVET REVOLVER bass player Duff McKagan are working with WALKING PAPERS, a new Seattle band launched by former SCREAMING TREES drummer Barrett Martin and longtime Seattle musician Jeff Angell. McKagan plays bass on the band's entire debut disc, while McCready contributes lead guitar solos. Mixed by Jack Endino, the record is due out on October 16 via Boredom Killing Business/Sunyata Records and the first single, "Your Secret's Safe With Me", is streaming at the band's Facebook page.

    "Walking Papers" track listing:

    01. Already Dead
    02. The Whole World's Watching
    03. Your Secret's Safe With Me
    04. Red Envelopes
    05. Leave Me In The Dark
    06. The Butcher
    07. Two Tickets And A Room
    08. I'll Stick Around
    09. Capital T
    10. A Place Like This
    11. Independence Day

    Commented Martin: "WALKING PAPERS is excited to play our first international dates in the U.K. Two of us, myself and Duff McKagan, have debuted our first bands in London: Duff with GUNS N' ROSES, myself with both SKIN YARD and SCREAMING TREES.

    "The British people understand rock and roll like no other country in the world, which is why fellow Seattleites Jimi Hendrix went there, why MUDHONEY went there, and why WALKING PAPERS is going there as well.

    "Jeff Angell, our singer and guitarist, is a natural storyteller, and Ben Anderson plays keyboards like a classic soul man session player. With Duff and I as the rhythm section, let's just say we are the seasoned veterans. We play old-school, gritty, bluesy American rock and roll, and as a quartet, that's as real as it gets."

    WALKING PAPERS tour dates:

    Sep. 29 - Seattle, WA - White River Amphitheater
    Sep. 30 - Portland, OR - Dante's
    Oct. 05 - Seattle, WA - The Barboza (CD Release Party)
    Oct. 19 - Little Rock, AR - Reno's
    Oct. 20 - Little Rock, AR - Stickyz (CeDell Davis Tribute)
    Nov. 06 - Rugby/Birmingham, UK - The Vault
    Nov. 07 - Manchester, UK - The Ruby Lounge
    Nov. 09 - Brighton/Southampton, UK - [to be announced]
    Nov. 10 - Paris, France - Nouveau Casino
    Nov. 11 - London, UK - The 100 Club
    Dec. 06 - San Diego, CA - Brick By Brick
    Dec. 07 - Los Angeles, CA - The Viper Room
    Dec. 09 - San Francisco, CA - [to be announced]
    Dec. 14 - Portland, OR - Dante's
    Dec. 15 - Seattle, WA - The Crocodile Cafe

    Martin and McCready previously played together in MAD SEASON, alongside late ALICE IN CHAINS singer Layne Staley. The band is currently being reactivated with new vocals being recorded over tracks originally laid down for an abandoned second MAD SEASON album.

    McKagan was born and raised in Seattle and played in a punk band there called 10 MINUTE WARNING before migrating to Los Angeles and joining GUNS.

    McCready and the rest of PEARL JAM are also working on their 10th studio album, which should be out sometime in 2013.

    Sounds cool, though nothing will compare to Mad Season. Never the less, I would go see this band if they came out to the east coast. I'll have to check them out.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    Mad Season's self-titled album is one of the best CDs from the 1990s, IMHO. Kind of overshadowed by both PC and AIC.

    This new clip sounds like early 90s Seattle grunge, i.e., Soundgarden. It's pretty cool, and I think I'd like it more with repeated listens. MM is an underrated guitarist and it's cool to hear him work with Duff. Not everyone knows this, but Duff is a Seattle native who was part of punk scene in the 1980s. Duff was one of the last people to speak with Kurt Cobain, as the two sat next to each other on a flight from LA to Seattle. They had a friendly conversation and had a few drinks together, despite the bad blood between Nirvana and GN'R.

    Jeff Angell is a good vocalist and it fits the music well. It might be for the best that they don't have a real well known vocalist, as it might seem like a letdown if people have a preconceived notion of what a band should sound like, i.e, Audioslave. This is one CD that I'm looking forward to.

    I agree, The Mad Season cd was one of the best to come out. Plus their VHS tape Live From The Moore is still one of my favorite live shows to watch. Thankfully I have it on DVD now.
    They could have gone with Mark Lanegan too. That would have been a good choice.

    I saw Mark Lanegan a few months ago at a small club and he was amazing. He truly is an underrated singer/songwriter. Check out his latest album Blues Funeral if you haven't done so already.

    He would have made a good choice for this band as he already worked with Barrett Martin and Mike McCready in Mad Season. Plus Duff has played on a few of his albums.
