Jackie-O Mother-Fucker: Ballads of the Revolution (4 stars)

Jackie-O Mother-Fucker: Ballads of the Revolution

Now 15 years formed and with a plethora of studio (and live) albums to their name, Portland’s JoMFs produce yet another mind-blowing, psychedelic trip. Sounding like a hybrid of Butthole Surfers, Spacemen 3 and Red Red Meat, lead-guru Tom Greenwood and co (namely fuzz-guitarist Joanne Robertson) create improv lo-fi melancholia, too wigged-out for the un-stoned and, er, too stoned-out for the un-wigged! Feel free to wave your hair in the air via ‘The Cryin Sea’ the folk-ish ‘A Mania’ and opener ‘Nightingale’. Pass me my noodles!
