Product description

Product Description

The Brian Jonestown Massacre is a psychedelic rock band originally from San Francisco, California, led by guitarist/singer Anton Newcombe. Since 1995 The Brian Jonestown Massacre has released numerous albums, first for Bomp! Records, the label which gave them their start, and later for TVT and Tee Pee. BJM has been essential in the development of the modern U.S. garage scene, and many LA and SF musicians got their start playing with Newcombe, including Peter Hayes of The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Originally Newcombe was heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones' psychedelic phase - the name comes from Stones guitarist Brian Jones combined with a reference to cult leader Jim Jones, but his work in the 2000s has expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating the UK Shoegazing genre of the 1990s and incorporating influences from world music, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music.

Format: Audio CD
Pitched somewhere between the genuinely progressive, psychedelic exploration of the 1960's freak generation, and the lo-fi drones of the late-80's shoegazers, Methodrone is a rich and startling achievement... an album that manages to flaunt it's various influences like little gold badges of honour, whilst simultaneously presenting it's own unique and distinctive sound and vision. It's a world away from the more trippy psyche-influenced sound that would follow on albums like Their Majesties Second Request and the garage-rock inflected Take it From the Man! (but when the music is as deep and as mind-bending as this... it's really no bad thing!!), with the band here instead fusing elements of Jefferson Airplane, Cream, Moby Grape, Love, and the Velvet Underground, with distinctive elements of Loop, Ride, Spacemen 3, the Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine.
As a result, Methodrone essentially picks up where albums like Darklands, Isn't Anything and Loveless left off... with The Brian Jonestown Massacre taking the influence of 60's chart pop and psychedelic rock, and drowning them beneath waves of heavenly feedback. On top of that we have some fantastic percussion and those drifting, dreamy vocals, which here sound like Mick Jagger impersonating Kevin Shields, as layers and layers of different guitar effects rise and fall like crashing waves all around us!! Amidst this we have the bass locking into a heavy groove that lulls the listener into a dream-like stupor as the machine gun patter of the drums and a hint of female backing vocals merge with those of the BJM's shaman-esque leader Anton Newcombe to create something that is both ethereal, dreamy and transcendent, whilst also managing to sound rough, raucous and defiantly anthemic.

Format: Audio CD
A great album for anyone who belives that My Bloody Valentine's "loveless" was the Pet Sounds of the 90's and Flying Saucer Attack deserve more airplay.
A great title too, getting my daily dose of the drone & is there method in the madness? This was my intro to BJM & it led me down interesting & dark coridoors.
Form the driving, swirling guitars soft gentle melodies emerge; it's like find a tranquil spot in a busy city.
