Although finding mainstream success with the release of “Sweet Oblivion”, and the single ‘Nearly Lost You’ from the soundtrack to Cameron Crowes’s film “Singles”, the Screaming Trees’ history goes back to 1985, predating many of their Grunge-era, Seattle peers.
Formed in Ellensburg, Washington state, around the nucleus of brothers Garry Lee Conner (guitar) and Van Conner (bass), and fronted by the sonorous tones of Mark Lanegan, they recorded four albums and numerous singles for such grunge movers and shakers as Sub Pop and SST, before signing a major label deal with Sony's Epic Records. Releasing the Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) produced “Uncle Anaesthesia” in 1991, it was followed by “Sweet Oblivion” the following year, by which time they had been joined by drummer Barrett Martin (REM, Mad Season, Queens Of The Stoneage & Walking Papers).
