Members of the three biggest grunge bands
ever, formed a supergroup called 3RD SECRET.
The members are Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, and Pearl Jam/Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron and also Bubba DuPree, guitarist from early-’80s DC hardcore band Void, and vocalists Jennifer Johnson and Jillian Raye, both of whom are in Novoselic’s other band Giants In The Trees.
TUTV: Out of the blue 3rd Secret dropped their self-titled debut LP on the Internet. And? It’s a lukewarm affair. A messy retro collection of power ballads, Led Zep and Sabbath riffs, and 80s hard rock. Pretty heavy here and there, but too many fillers.
NME: “The surprise debut album from 3rd Secret sounds
subdued and uninspired, two things that grunge never was.”
They recently played their first show in Seattle.
Here’s a photo of that gig by Tony Drovetto.
