Hepa/Titus - The Giving Brain Vol. 1 & 2 (2011)
So I finally got to see Kevin Rutmanis' (Cows, Melvins, Tomahawk) new band Hepa/Titus play last night. It was more or less what I expected. Kind of weird like Kevin himself but it was an entertaining show. Unlike his previous bands, Hepa/Titus really is Kevin's band with him singing and his bass taking on more of a lead role much like a guitar. Volume 1 is more experimental with each song being exactly 20 minutes long and is a cassette only release with a pressing of 72 copies. Volume 2 is a rock record more in line with what they performed live and is a 12" vinyl release with a pressing of 200 copies.
