In Response to Re: Chain Reaction
[QUOTE]The early LPs were once described as sounding like "a chainsaw in a hurricane." The compilation , 'Barbed Wire Kisses' is really cool, contains early material plus B-sides & rarities. The Reid Brothers remake of 'Surfin' USA' is too cool for words...you have to hear it to belive it could ever be played by this type of band! 'Automatic' is my favorite.
My title song appears on this CD, 'Halfway to Crazy.'
Heavily influenced by late 70's Punk rock , you know I'm a big fan. When it comes to music, darker and angrier is a good thing. These guys were real Alternative heroes. They stayed true to what Alternative was all about and never came even close to being mainstream or marketable to the general public. Top rating from me.
I couldn't get enough of them back in the early 90's.

I will check out your title song by JAMC. Can't wait. :)
A group called the Magnetic Fields based the sound and feel of one of their albums on the JAMC -- it's not a cover album, it's all original songs, but they used the JAMC style, which is radically different from their norm. Very interesting endeavor, IMO, and I love many of the songs on it (you might, too, since you like JAMC as much as you do).
Thanks for the A+ rating and album rec'dn. I think I know a couple of songs from that album. (Just checked their version of "Surfin USA" and you're right, it's real fun -- makes it easy to forget the Beach Boys -- heh).
