Glen E. Friedman’s page has new Pearl Jam pics featuring Matt.

Before Binaural came out, a group called Resistance, which formed on the newsgroup,, refused to listen to the album before its release date. Many Pearl Jam fans downloaded the entire album prior to May 16thm but this group resisted the temptation and vowed to wait until the store release. Read the article: "Pearl Jam Fans Say ‘Hell No, We Won’t Download’".

The new Wellwater Conspiracy four- song single will be out in a few weeks.

"Nothing As It Seems" has made it onto the Top 10 alternative, rock, and active rock radio charts.

A recent Billboard article concerning "Binaural" mentioned this about Matt: "Former Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, who joined Pearl Jam for its 1998 U.S. tour and has been a part of the band ever since, is also a dominant factor on "Binaural." Cameron wrote the music for the edgy "Evacuation" and is said to have come up with certain guitar parts that Gossard and guitarist Mike McCready spent hours figuring out."

Here's some info I got from the 107.7 the End (Seattle) newsletter: "All next week, The End is celebrating the release of Pearl Jam's new album Binaural. We're giving you copies of their new record and qualifying you to see PJ in London at the end of May.

The new WWC single, titled ''Tidepool Telegraph" is supposed to be out this month on Third Gear. The new record should be out once Matt finds a sufficient deal. The new record will have 11 songs (37 min, 11sec), with Matt singing on 7 of the songs.

"Word is that Terrastock will happen in Seattle later this year!... Wellwater Conspiracy (Matt, John McBain, others) will definitely be performing." Terrastock is a music festival, which used to held in California. It was started as a fund raiser for Ptolemaic Terrescope, a British music zine, who was going out of business and who also ran features on WWC. BUT I heard that John McBain has not confirmed this, so don't get all excited just yet.

Pearl Jam's new album, "Binaural" will be released May 23. The first single "Nothing As It Seems" (with bside Insignificance)will be played on radio starting April 11 and available in stores on April 24th
