yikes, glad that it's not much worse ... one of the very best drummers out there ... there's a tune on the new one that features some unbelievable playing.

in better news, just got wind of this:
CHARNEL GROUND is a meeting of Chris Brokaw (Come/Codeine/The New Year etc). on electric guitar, James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump) on bass, and Kid Millions (Oneida/Man Forever/etc) on drums, dedicated to exploring the outer and inner regions of instrumental rock music. 'Charnel Ground' was recorded in Brooklyn NY in 2016, and informed and dedicated to pivotal transitions.

the one time i saw oneida live, kid millions was sick, and they had two replacement drummers, because they said that's how many drummers they needed to replace him

Damn, hope he has a speedy recovery. :(
Had dinner with him once when a friend was involved in an early Man Forever piece (the one with the 1/2 hour long single-stroke roll, which was great), just a super nice and genuine dude.

One of the best drummers around, obviously. Feeling for the guy and wishing him a full recovery.

The annals of Jagjaguwar have most unfortunately left a lot of cherished albums and projects from our catalogue long out of print on wax. Others are in need of a first-ever, proper vinyl pressing. The Jagjaguwar Reissue Series seeks to right these wrongs. The cornerstone alumni and albums upon which the House of Jag today stands can now reach new hearts and minds wherever turntables keep turning.
