REM and Sleater-Kinney members recording with Nirvana's Krist Novoselic
Peter Buck and Corin Tucker enter studio with Novoselic for super-Earth sessions
It was recently announced that Buck and Tucker had formed the band super-Earth alongside guitarist Scott McCaughey (Minus 5), drummer Bill Rieflin (Swans, Ministry) and guitarist Kurt Bloch. That line-up of the band made their live debut in Portland last week (April 30).
However, since that date, it has come to light that super-Earth have been recording with Novoselic. A tweet sent by American filmmaker, documentarian, and music video director Lance Bangs shows an image of all three members together for the first time.
Bangs captioned the image, "Ex-REM, Sleater-Kinney, Nirvana, Flipper, Swans, Ministry, Young Fresh Fellows studio session."
Super-Earth's gig at the Secret Society Ballroom on April 30 saw the band performing twelve new songs of "soon-to-be-album-sized new compositions". There is no current news as to when, or if, the band will release an album, or if Novoselic will perform live with them in the future.
Buck and Tucker have collaborated in the past with Tucker providing backing vocals on Buck's self-titled 2012 solo album. Similarly, Buck was on stage when Sleater-Kinney briefly reunited for a live performance in late 2013.
