The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Words by

Published September 26, 2008

This record has two versions of two songs and then the superbly titled ‘Bring Me The Head Of Paul McCartney On Heather Mill’s Wooden Peg’ which appears on their latest album ‘My Bloody Underground’.  Fans may feel hard done by the lack of fresh material, but this is really just a thank you to Iceland from the ever-changing, always-partying and forever mesmerizing band for the good times had here. The white shoegaze of both English and Icelandic versions of ‘Amazing Electronic Talking Cave’ wash so well together that they could have used both for one composition. The red and green swivels in the psychedelic title track doesn’t spoil the colour either. The whole EP is drenched in feedback and their choice of FX is once again ooh la la.  The band gives away so much stuff away for free that it would be a bit rich for an onslaught of grumbles. No complaints here.

THE VERDICT
No newbies on EP but new versions compensate for this
