Season of the Witch
First released Sept. 9, 2001, this is the first ever re-release of Year 5000's crazed raw screed. This is the finest of their early work: Raw and vulnerable, witty and poppy, fierce and piercing. The album was recorded by Rob Oberdorfer in Portland, Oregon during 2000 and 2001. Year 5000 was Joel D. Holly (bass), Ritchie Young (drums), and Mat Probasco (voice/guitar). Season of the Witch was the band's second release after the shadowy Secret Album (NoteFarm 1999). Y5k toured Oregon, California, Washington and British Columbia in support of Season of the Witch, removing much of the improvised material that had marred their early live shows.
