Unreleased track by Lou Barlow, Dave Grohl Dale Crover, Imaad Wasif & Nate Mendel
Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr & more) has just posted a lost supergroup video from a session with members of Melvins & Foo Fighters. Of the project, Barlow said, "i recorded a couple of songs with Imaad Wasif and Dale Crover about two years ago at 606 studios ( home of the Foo FIghters ) ..it was meant to be for a benefit 7" which has yet to be released.. in the meantime i've made quick vids for both of the tracks so's you can hear what we did before it possibly vanishes in the haze.. the session was simultaneously documented for a possible pilot for a possible Foo Fighters related documentary series.. haven't heard much about that either .. Greg Jacobs was also there photographing making it the most thoroughly captured recording session i've ever done..cheggit" He's possibly referring to Foo Fighters documentary series Sonic Highways which was directed by Dave Grohl and recently aired on HBO. The intended single project had a working title of "Father's Day" by Tres Padres. Dale Crover(Melvins), Imaad Wasif (guitarist & solo artist) and Lou Barlow (Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh) recorded the song for an unreleased benefit 7" June 15 and 16, 2013 at 606 studios with John Lousteau. The track features bass by Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters, Sunny Day Real Estate) with photography by Greg Jacobs. Enjoy this little seen video courtesy of Mr. Barlow.
