Hater - Circles

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1993

Two quick songs, but two songs very worth the time. The first one is (I think) the same as the album version of the song 'Circles' that is also included on the band's first album. It's one of those "perfect songs" in my opinion; perfectly crafted rock-n-roll that plays it fast, loose, and catchy with nods to proto-punk, garage rock, and mod rock. The second song is 'Gen-O-Cide', which would appear to be a "fucking around in the studio" kinda deal. A very sloppy, drone-y, freakout jammer. It's enjoyable even if they saw it as a throw away.
Hater was most known as a Soundgarden side project, or a super group of sorts, which, I suppose is fair. There are well known folks playing on these songs, so sure, a super group it is.
the band:
Matt Cameron - Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Wellwater Conspiracy, Skin Yard, Temple Of The Dog
Ben Shepard - Soundgarden, Wellwater Conspiracy, Desert Sessions,
John McBain - Monster Magnet, Wellwater Conspiracy, Desert Sessions
John Waterman - Devilhead
