Product Description


On their ninth CD, the Brian Jonestown Massacre does what they're best at. That is, they conjure up visions of Beggars Banquet-era Rolling Stones and other artists from the swinging '60s. Emphasizing acoustic slide guitars, harmonica, handclaps, and tambourine, Anton Newcombe sings passionately in Jaggeresque style. While decidedly retro, the band is always entertaining as they evoke their musical heroes. On the song "Mansion in the Sky" Newcombe recalls the mood of early Dylan with evocative results. Folksy, bluesy, and particularly understated, this disc contains only six songs and leaves you hungry for more. With Miranda Lee Richards's haunting vocal on "Reign On" and an eerie update of Charles Manson's composition "Arkansas," Brian Jonestown Massacre turns six into nine one more time. It's brief, but bright, and their most satisfying work to date. --Mitch Myers

Product Description

This six-song, half-hour record shows the band affecting a more rural, lonesomesounding tone and a moodier, more deliberate pace; the more traditional feel meshes well with Anton Newcombe's twisting of country-gospel lyrical clich‚s into rock & roll attitude.The Brian Jonestown Massacre is a psychedelic rock band originally from San Francisco, California, led by guitarist/singer Anton Newcombe.With The Dandy Warhols, The Brian Jonestown Massacre is one of the subjects of the documentary DIG!, winner of the 2004 Grand Jury Prize Documentary at Sundance. DIG! is also a part of the Permanent Collection of the NY Museum of Modern Art. Since the release of DIG!, the band has achieved increasing critical acclaim and recognition, and has performed at Coachella and Lollapalooza in 2005 with special mentions from the NY Times and Washington Post. They have also toured the UK, Japan, Australia, as well as Continental Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars you just crave for some more Feb. 6 2006
By Regis Gaudin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Named after a classic Bob Dylan album, this EP is one the finest recording the Jonestown ever did. Only 6 songs that clocks-in less than half an hour. When the disc is over, you just crave for some more. Recorded by any means, with almost no drums or bass, The BJM welcomes here Miranda Lee Richards and her beautiful and eerie voice. Hard to find but definitely worth the looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arkensa yeah June 2 2006
By John Face - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant record. The music floats between quiet and beautiful tracks like 'reign on'... then on to the fun, hellraising blasphemy of the 'godspell according to Newcombe'. the last track, 'arkensa revisited', is as crazily cool as it is dangerous. Note the charles manson reference.

"Goin' back to Arkensa, gonna kill my ma and pa...gonna kill my ma and dad cause they made my life so sad."

5.0 out of 5 stars One for the trail Two for the saloon & Three for the gallows June 21 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ain't nothing better than this album in a dusty pick-up driving through an old mining town. This time, they take it all the way back---to birth of the Western underground---to the outlaws and the prospectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch EP from the best rock n' roll band in America. Sept. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
BJM continue - with this brilliant, countrified-bluesy 6-tracker - to cut a blistering path through the history of American music. No-one can touch them. If you doubt, check out 1998's sublime "Strung Out in Heaven" or 1996's neglected blues-folk-rock masterpiece "Thank God for Mental Illness". They are one of the few bands in American music worth dying for. Name my pill Anton!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential B.J.M. March 27 2008
By Frank the RabbiT - Published on Amazon.com
If you're already a Brian Jonestown fan and don't have this, well, you'll probably like it. It's an all acoustic album, and it's got upbeat songs and mellow songs... all pretty damn good. From what I understand, Charles Manson wrote the very creepy "Arkansas", the 13 minute final track. I guess my only complaint would be that there aren't more songs.
