Boomkat Product Review:
Jackie O Motherfucker are an extensive collective made up of more musicians than I have time to list, but are held together by the unifying thread of spaced-out droning pyschedelia, and if that doesn't whet you're appetite I don't know what will. Bands like this come into their own when playing live, capturing a spirit that never seems to translate to studio recordings, and although 'Flags of the Sacred Harp' was a triumphant venture into peculiar songwriting and production, their live shows shed light on a totally different aspect of their sound. What's interesting is how the collective changes from show to show, taking in extra members like a snowball rolling down a mountain, and of course this totally changes the dynamic and overall sound of each show. The album kicks off with a restrained piece recorded in the confines of WFMU's radio studio - with help from Samara Lubelski and Theo Angell among others the band layer sparkling ritualistic drones, angular post-SY guitar tickling and rumbling percussion to create a totally mesmerizing 26 minute trip guaranteed to get psych fans salivating. Straight after this we're treated to another restrained segment from the band; recorded live in France this 20 minute exploration is far more harmonic and drifting in its beauty, exploring the band's more mellow melancholic side. The second disc is where the real winners reside though, with two live recordings showing that the band can rock with jams resembling Sunburned Hand of the Man at their best. This is the sort of music that's literally crying out for you to crank up at home, bust out a lunchbox of controlled substances and take steps into another world.
