Boomkat Product Review:
*CD version in 4 panel mini-LP style gatefold package with high gloss printing* "Brother JT is Central, PA’s John Terlesky, who, since the early 90s, has been exploring experimental and psychedelic rock music as Brother JT with releases on labels such as Drag City, Drunken Fish, Siltbreeze, and Birdman. Brother JT founded the garage pop band The Original Sins in 1987 and went on to release 10 albums (some with Bar/None). Brother JT has toured with Bardo Pond, Royal Trux, Bevis Frond, Blonde Redhead and Smog. ‘The Svelteness Of Boogietude’ is his debut on Thrill Jockey, and Bryon Coley (from whom he acquired the Brother JT moniker) called it his “most outstanding effort yet.” The album is typical of JT’s output in certain ways - rockers mixed with ballads, all of them crafted with casual elegance - but there are new elements here as well. In particular, there’s an attention to the legacy of later-period T. Rex, which results in tunes that kick total ass. Again Byron Coley, having seen Bolan play during his ‘Zinc Alloy And The Hidden Riders Of Tomorrow’ / ‘Zip Gun Boogie’ period, went so far as to claim that “JT’s approach to this stuff equals that of the Master - huge riffbased anthems that balance glam dynamics with mystical history on the head of a pin.” JT also manages to pull off ballads that can remind one of Beat Happening (‘Gliding’) or what it might be like to hear Warren Zevon covering The Velvet Underground (‘Somebody Down There’), a lost track by The Stalk-Forrest Group (‘Muffintop’) or even a Kevin Ayers / Scott Walker move so bold you’ll shiver (‘I Still Like Cassettes’). Brother JT hosts the internet talk show ‘Trippin’ Balls’, that features lively discussions on the subject of hallucinogenic drugs. Guests have included Espers, Bardo Pond, Greg Fox (Guardian Alien), Ed Schrader, and Twig Harper."
