It’s been a busy week for exclusives, with the upcoming Live From Nowhere Near You : Volume Two compilation yielding previously unreleased tracks from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and a slew of others.
We’re now proud to premiere one final exclusive, called Shame On You, performed by Stone Gossard and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam with Pete Droge, Cole Peterson of Sweetwater and Chris Friel of The Rockfords. All but Droge appeared on the first Live From Nowhere Near You compilation album, with a Mike-led track called Powerless.
The track appearing on the current volume features Stone on vocals, and is from the same session as the first, recorded at Studio X with Pete Droge. Listen to Shame On You:
Kevin Moyer, the cultivator and engine behind this eight-year project, found a kinship in Pearl Jam’s lead guitarist. “Mike McCready and I share the same desires to help similar charities and causes,” he told Antiquiet. “He has been a supporter and contributor to both Volume One and Two of Live From Nowhere Near You, and in return I regularly support his personal charity events – some which I also personally identify with.”
Moyer went on to share his appreciation for Pearl Jam – both onstage and off: “All of the guys I’ve encountered in Pearl Jam are as nice as they are talented, which is saying a lot. The real fucking deal. They’ve managed to survive and stay relevant and their extensive catalog can’t be denied, becoming bona fide legends while still remaining real guys with true integrity and down to earth instincts. I’ve got a couple other music projects brewing so hopefully there will be much more to come that we do together. The Pearl Jam guys have got my respect, loyalty, and friendship either way.”
Written by Stone Gossard; Stone Gossard: vocals and guitar; Mike McCready: guitar and piano; Pete Droge: backing vocals; Cole Peterson: bass; Chris Friel: drums This was recorded at Studio X in Seattle, during the same sessions that produced the Mike led song “Powerless” which appeared on Volume One.
