Spirit Caravan: Jug Fulla Sun (1999), 6.5/10
Spirit Caravan: Elusive Truth (2000), 6/10

Scott "Wino" Weinrich formed the first incarnation of Obsessed in the 1970s in Maryland. He then joined Saint Vitus, but eventually reformed Obsessed in 1989. Obsessed released the albums The Obsessed (Hellhound, 1990), Lunar Womb (Hellhound, 1991 - Meteor City, 2006) and The Church Within (Sony, 1994), that stand as influential (if not very original) works in the doom scene.

Incarnate (Southern Lord) is a career retrospective.

After shutting down Obsessed, Weinrich formed Spirit Caravan, that has released Jug Fulla Sun (Tolotta, 1999), almost a compendium of Weinrich's obsession with doom, and Elusive Truth (Tolotta, 2000), later collected on the double-disc The Last Embrace (Meteor City, 2003), while the last Obsessed rhythm section joined Goatsnake.

Scott "Wino" Weinrich's next project was the Hidden Hand, that released Divine Propaganda (Meteor City, 2003), Mother Teacher Destroyer (2005), The Resurrection Of Whiskey Foote (2007).

Wino's first solo album Punctuated Equilibrium (Southern Lord, 2009) had only nostalgic value.

Shrinebuilder (Neurot, 2009) was a supergroup consisting of Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Al Cisneros (Om, Sleep), Dale Crover (the Melvins), and Wino (Obsessed, Spirit Caravan, Saint Vitus) playing very old-fashioned doom-metal a` la Black Sabbath.

Weinrich also formed Premonition 13 that debuted with 13 (Volcom, 2011), again in the same stoner-rock and doom-metal veins.

Adrift (Volcom, 2011), credited to Wino, was Weinrich's personal confession in the vein of the classic singer-songwriter.
