Back in 2002, former members of SEVEN FOOT SPLEEN, PUJ and STONE OF ABEL got together and formed a new musical project with the sole intent of writing 1 song for an upcoming installment of Very Small Records' Songs About Drinking series. The song was ultimately rejected, but the project continued on, eventually adopting the name, PATHETICISM. During their relatively short lifespan (less than a year), PATHETICISM shared the stage with ANTiSEEN, WEEDEATER, HAWG JAW, STAR CHILD, KYLESA, & FACE FIRST to name but a few. The 6 songs that appear on this CD were hastily recorded live in a friend's basement so that the band would have something to sell at shows in Savannah, GA & New Orleans. Very few were actually sold, however.
This is the first time since 2003 that these songs have been available to the public.
Heavy, distorted & verging on self-implosion, PATHETICISM stumbled and lurched
through their sets, garnering comparisons to
FLIPPER, SCRATCH ACID, BUZZOV-EN & CHERUBS
(who they cover on this disc.)
Members of PATHETICISM went on to play in FLAT TIRES, MOUNTAIN OF JUDGMENT, THE ASOUND & HOUR OF 13.
