35 yrs of listening and in 2 wks the answer was in front of me,
This review is from: Take It From The Man! (Audio CD)
Think that the previous reviewer covered most of the bases. However He/She missed a standout track on this album and that is "Monkey Puzzle"
I have only been listening to the "BJM" Huh! for a week or so now, having bought 3 of their albums on the strength of seeing, Anton ET AL in the DVD "DIG" just a fortnight ago.
Listeners/collectors of '60s psychedelia. Who have all the albums by all their favourite bands and are looking for that hidden track from an album by a band that doesn't exist?
Hey! look no further "The Brian Jonestown Massacre" can hit the spot with every track they play.
You. Have all the "Nuggets", "Rubble","Pebbles","Boulders". Boxed sets. Plus the albums from the bands you thought you liked. And you don't play them anymore because you are in search of the ever elusive.
Well! Look No further, for these guys are continuing on all your favs. With all the same verve and enthusiasm. With more Modern lyrics and a mixture of sounds that cannot be pigeonholed.
Derivitive?.. Of what?.. The whole of the '60s in general?
Well I guess so.
Is that so bad?
All music is derivitive. It is human nature. (Unless someone has discovered some new Notes).
Anyways "Monkey Puzzle" . Soul/Rock/Psych. Like nothing you have heard. (Unless you had three songs playing at the same time.).
You will surely, purchase every Album, released by this band.....? I suppose.
