The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper

After years of hating the BJM, thinking they were total tosh, I finally gave in with 'My Bloody Underground' and thought they were pretty good. I started to see the fuss. Subsequent releases have been so so with the odd decent track here and there but let's say it's all been reasonably patchy. The opener to 'Who Killed Sgt Pepper' s...view item »

Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
If I Love You

More atonal compositions from the man, the myth known as Chris Cornell.. I mean Anton Newcombe. It's an oldie is this one my brothers, the tracks on side B are from 1991/2 the tracks on side A are taken from the L.A. sessions in 2001. A beguiling mix of old Massacre and.. Erm, slightly less old Massacre. The opening track is a lovelorn ode to lo...view item »

Bravery, Repetition & Noise

One of the BJM's best!

Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
Cocaine Cat

We all know who Anton Newcombe is  - he's the one out of Brian Jonestown Massacre. We know less about Tess Parks but according to Alan McGee "Tess is an amazing lady” so this should be an interesting collaboration. They recorded this in Berlin and I *think* it's a taster for a forthcoming full length. Brian Jonestown-related stuff alw...view item »

Sun Ship

Well the good news is that there's a new the Brian Jonestown Massacre album due in October but while we wait for “Third World Pyramid” to land we must be grateful for these two taster tracks released on honey coloured vinyl (how delightful). If it beats the incredible 'Revelation' I'll eat a horse but it's alway...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Take It From The Man

If you want to hear The Rolling Stones, you should probably listen to The Rolling Stones -- what's wrong with you? But if you've exhausted your supply and are trawling through old '60s psychedelia, I invite you to go to the '90s and investigative 'Take it from the Man'! Filled with endless guitar hooks and groovy anthems like "BSA" and "Vac...view item »

This Is Why You Love Me

Anton Newcombe continues his tireless mission to reissue all the early The Brian Jonestown Massacre records with the re-release of the 1997 four track E.P 'You love me'.

Revelation

Led by the infamous Anton Newcombe, Brian Jonestown Massacre recorded their 14th album, Revelation in Newcombe’s Berlin studio over 18 months between 2012 and 2014.

Third World Pyramid

Their previous album 'Revelation' was to my mind one of the finest of their career so we are all hoping that the Brian Jonestown Massacre's late renaissance continues with this their 15th studio album.

Musique de film imaginé

The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcome here produces, not the soundtrack to a film, but a ‘soundtrack’ to the idea of a non-existent film in the vein of classic French New Wave directors. You know that'll sound lovely. Musique de film imaginé includes the vocals of SoKo ...view item »

Thank God For Mental Illness is the third album by The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It was originally released in 1996.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Smoking Acid

Professional mad bastard Anton Newcombe has a charmingly unhinged EP out under his protective BJM umbrella. This one goes by the name 'Smoking Acid' and the first two tunes adopt a trashed-out punkgasm manifesto of sludgy shoegazer space rock that sounds suitably shambling, fuzzy & raw enough for this man to sit up & take notice. Recorded i...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
The Singles Collection (1992-2011)

This has all the singles that came out before I got "turned on" to this incredible music. So this gives me a feeling of completion with the bonus that it's all remastered to the hilt. Really sounds like Anton cared what it would sound like. Buy this if you never heard BJM before because it also contains their latest single, which is incredible. ...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Bravery, Repetition and Noise

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
My Bloody Underground

Remember when you put a needle on a record and the sound that emerged was once of pure soul, melody and surprise.

Well if a time ever ac...view item »

Give It Back!

Ah, good memories! Been a while since I sat down to listen to this one in its entirety. A shame: it holds up extremely well. First released in 1997 after their mammoth 'three albums in six months' 1996 spree, Give It Back probably represents the peak of the BJM’s 'vintage', 60s-drenched sound. Leaving aside the simply-fuck...view item »

Bringing it all Back Home Again

The BJM being the BJM...doing what they want, even if that means playing just two chords for over thirteen minutes on an acoustic guitar while singing about some farmboy killing his parents. Whether 'Arkansas Revisited' really was co-written by Charles Manson is, let's face it, doubtful. But it's evil - in a good way - nonetheless...view item »

This is a good raw BJM album.

Methodrone

Clinton awoke from his slumbers on overhearing the news that theres another Brian Jonestown Massacre album out.

It comes on lovely blue double vinyl...view item »

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Tomorrow's Heroes Today

Like several of the BJM's albums this might take a good few listens before its brilliance sinks in. But it contains, in 'Prozac vs. Heroin', one of the very best Jonestown songs. Aside from the music, the cover and sleeve notes alone are worth the price of admission. Slightly lunatic as always, Newcombe lays bare the influence of British...view item »

If Love Is The Drug Then I Want To OD
