Former Mad Season and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin is selling new items on eBay due to him moving recording studios. Fans have wondered since Mad Season’s January 2015 concert at Benayora Hall with Chris Cornell stepping in for Layne Staley as lead singer if the band would reunite again for additional performances, but according to Martin’s post, that was the final Mad Season show.
“I’m closing down my recording studio at the end of December and moving to a new location. In the process of packing up, we’ve found some musical gear and memorabilia that Mad Season and Screaming Trees collectors might be interested in. The items are posted on my Ebay page in the link below and they include things like the Mad Season bass drum head from our final concert at Benroya Hall, the drum set I used with Raw Power on the roof of the Pike Place Market, and some original test pressings of the Mad Season ‘Above Deluxe’ double album and ‘Live At The Moore Theater’, as well as test pressings for the Screaming Trees albums ‘Sweet Oblivion’ and ‘Last Words.’
There are also a few odds and ends we found. Proceeds from these sales will help fund my Singing Earth projects, such as the indigenous Shipibo Shamans of the Peruvian Amazon as we get ready to mix, master, and release their next album of healing songs (February release!) Thank you to everyone for a really great year of music, creativity, touring, and supporting these ongoing musical projects around the world. Much love and happy holidays to everyone, Barrett.”
