Earth - Discography

The most well-known Earth is an band formed in 1990 in Olympia, Washington, USA by Dylan Carlson, Slim Moon, and Greg Babior. They are pioneers in the minimalistic and repetitive form of known as drone doom. The band at some point moved to Seattle where Carlson forged a strong friendship with music icon Kurt Cobain, who sang lead vocals for the song Divine and Bright on the live album Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars. Cobain also appeared as a “specialist” on Earth’s 1990 debut release Extra-Capsular Extraction, and sang backing vocals on A Bureaucratic Desire for Revenge Part 2. Joe Preston, who played bass briefly with the Melvins, also appears on this 3 song CD.

Dylan Carlson has been the driving force of the band and still remains the core of an everchanging line-up. As of the release of their most recent album (entitled The Bees Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull), Earth consists of Dylan Carlson (guitars/amplifiers), Adrienne Davis (drums/percussion), Steve Moore (acoustic and electric pianos/wurlitzer) and Don McGreevy (acoustic/electric bass). Bill Frisell appeared as a guest guitarist on three songs.
