Catalog No SP448

Completing a trio of Sub Pop singles of artists going solo, Screaming Trees lead guitarist Gary Lee Conner emerges with his first release under his given name for the Singles Club. He’s not alone on the recordings, however. Conner is joined by his younger brother Patrick (Valis, Kittitas) as well as former Screaming Trees bandmate Mark Pickerel and Josh Homme of Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age. Conner takes lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar on the track, sounding likea cross between his former band as well as Pickerel’s own solo work (especially on the bluesy b-side “Behind The Smile”). After the single, Conner would go on to put out two solo albums – 1999’s Illuminaut and 2016’s Ether Trippers.
