John Paul McBain is an American musician, born April 23, 1965, in New Jersey. He was one of the founding guitarist's for acid-rock band Monster Magnet up until soon after their EP Tab was released, when he was fired due to personality conflicts with group front man Dave Wyndorf. After leaving Monster Magnet he moved to Washington State and creates the garage-rock group Hater, along with Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam), Ben Shephard (Soundgarden) and Brian Wood (brother of Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew Wood). The band released two albums of their brand of garage/psychedelic rock: their self-titled debut in 1993; and their follow-up, The 2nd, which was recorded in 1995 but released in 2005. In 1994, McBain was part of the first Josh Homme lead project, The Desert Sessions. There he met ex-Kyuss and then current Fu Manchu drummer Brant Bjork, which became an important friendship.

That same year, he and Matt Cameron created the Wellwater Conspiracy along with Ben Shephard. Their debut release was Declaration of Conformity, released in 1997 on the Third Gear label. Shortly after the release, Cameron was chosen to replace Jack Irons as drummer for grunge group Pearl Jam. However, Cameron maintained both groups, contributing to a further three Wellwater Conspiracy albums.

Notable appearances include keyboardist Glenn Slater of folk rock group The Walkabouts, Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age / Kyuss. In 2004, John moved to San Fransisco, refining material he'd accumulated which he believed weren't in step with the Wellwater Conspiracy's garage rock style. In February, 2006 he released The In-Flight Feature on Duna Records (founded by friend Brant Bjork). Read more on Last.fm.
