Jim Jones Revue || Watch

The Jim Jones Revue wants to save your soul. Former Thee Hypnotics and Black Moses veteran Jim Jones’s screaming vocals and Elliott Mortimer doing indecent things to the piano combine with Rupert Orton’s guitar, Gavin Jay’s bass and Nick Jones’s drums for an unholy orgy of rock ‘n’ roll idols from Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis to the MC5 and the Sonics. – Spinner

The Parson Red Heads, Red Cortez, The World Record @ The Echo

From The Echo:

The Parson Red Heads || Listen || Watch

If you’ve spent any time in the Silver Lake/Echo Park axis over the last half decade, chances are you’ve seen the Parson Red Heads. They’re hard to miss, an all-white-costumed crew who have, over the years, swelled to as many as eight people, looking like a cross between Danielson Famile and the Partridge Family, and playing sun-soaked and serene tunes that touched on the Beachwood Sparks and the usual Laurel Canyon suspects (The Byrds, Fleetwood Mac, CSNY).

Their live shows ran the gamut between drowsy folk-tinged acoustic sets and unruly psychedelic guitar workouts. The band played early, often and everywhere, with residencies at Spaceland, the Echo, and Silverlake Lounge that evidenced a visible joy that distinguished them from the often ultra-serious swarm of indie bands. Lamentably, the jubilation and jams will be far less frequent in these parts, with the band’s core trio of Evan Way (guitars, vocals), his wife, Brett Marie Way (drums, vocals), and Sam Fowles (guitar, vocals) announcing that they will be relocating back to their native Oregon. – LA Times

Club Underground Presents Men @ The Echo

From The Echo

MEN || Listen

The DJ/production/remix team of JD Samson and Johanna Fateman used to make up two-thirds of Le Tigre, the Brooklyn band who now appear to be on hiatus even though they appeared to be entering their most exciting phase to date when it was announced last summer that they were going to be collaborating with Christina Aguilera.

MEN don’t actually represent a massive departure from Le Tigre, who themselves were a sort of funky Sleater-Kinney, riot grrrls in electroclash armour. As their name suggests, MEN have retained Le Tigre’s socio-political – or rather, sexual-political – sensibility, swearing allegiance to the LGBT community and “feminist genderqueer artist collective” LTTR. Inevitably their agenda bias is left-wing issues: their songs tackle such unexpected dance music topics as “wartime economies, sexual compromise, and demanding liberties”. One track, Credit Card Babie$, from their debut self-titled, self-released EP (they are as yet without a record deal), is about “how expensive it is if you have a baby when you’re queer” while another, Simultaneously, concerns “AIDS, cancer and sickness”.

They’re an indie/electronic supergroup of sorts, comprising as they do various members of Hirsute, Princess and Ladybug Transistor. And they have a fluid lineup that makes them seem like more than a mere “band” – Fateman is no longer a full-time MEN girl, having left to have a baby, but she and artist Roysdon, to name but two, continue to contribute as “writers, consultants, and producers”. Not surprisingly, MEN – who have recently toured with Peaches and the Gossip – describe themselves as an “art/performance collective”. – Guardian

Mucca Pazza, Cobra Lilies, Fish Circus @ Spaceland

FROM SPACELAND:

MUCCA PAZZA || Listen || Watch

These days we’re more interested in fluidity, individuality … surprise. And that’s what Mucca Pazza offers: an entire program of tunes–some original, others plucked from far and wide across the canon–that express playfulness and joy, that embrace the unexpected. Their influences run riot from middle-eastern rhythms to alt-rock headbanging. (The Chicago Reader calls them a “gypsy punk-rock marching band,” which is as on the money as anything else I’ve heard.)

The paradox, of course, is that this seeming chaos is achieved only through backbreaking discipline; there’s improvisation here, sure, but at times the dizzying meticulousness of these musicians can’t help bursting through, as in a dizzyingly long fermata just before the concluding measure of Shostakovitch’s Trio in E-flat, during which each player remained poised for the next note, which, tantalizingly, just kept … on … not … coming. Soon the audience was roaring and clapping and happily hooting (recalling Oscar Wilde: “The suspense is terrible; I hope it will last”)–till after more than two minutes (I was timing it with my iPhone stopwatch) they suddenly they plunged back in with absolutely military precision, and ended the piece. – The Huffington Post
