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.

How have I not heard of this album before?

I have only owned this album for a fortnight but it has changed my musical expectations for ever.

The whole album is ramshackle craziness recorded by Junkies isn't it? Well actually yes it is but there's a whole lot more to it than that. For Anton to record this and to other superb albums in that year is unparalleled.

The mark of a great artist is to create something out if nothing. And that's what happens here. No money. No label. No problem......the songs must have come to him in a dream....one or two takes....let's just get it down man. They didn't realise just how good these songs were.

The final track, an album in itself, is a masterpiece. Somewhere between Dreamweapon and Street Hassle. Hey, that's a good place to be.

The first 12 tracks seem like an album in them self, then the 13th track is 30mins long with 5 songs mixed into its length. The mood of the first 12 are more upbeat the 13th track is more downbeat but all said and done you get the FULL RANGE of THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE on one album.

This is a good album, although not as good, I believe, as Give It Back! Bit patchy in places but strong in the middle. The 33 minute single track at the end is made of several different songs and ambient sounds and is great!
