The group began when Pearl Jam's guitarist Mike McCready set
up some informal jam sessions for himself and two friends: Screaming
Trees drummer Barrett Martin, and bassist John Baker Saunders of the
Lamont Cranston blues band. McCready later gave Layne Staley, Alice
In Chains' lead singer, a call and asked him to join in the fun. Layne
arrived, with guitar in hand and a head-full of lyric ideas, and the new
band's musical mix got even hotter.
Mad Season's music is a powerful blend of blues and heavy
rock, a potent combination of Staley's lyrics and the band's musical creations.
the band's first and only album to date, was realized in a whirlwind ten
day recording session! It also features Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees
on two tracks as well as Nalgas Sin Carne on saxophone.
Mad Season is an English term for the time of
the year when psilocybin mushrooms are in full bloom.
