The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Their Satanic Majesties Second Request


Originally released in 1996 now reissued on A Records’ Anton Newcombe’s own record label with new artwork. Named in tribute to the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and his influence in introducing eastern culture into the world of western rock and roll, the Brian Jonestown Massacre have made some of the most exciting underground music in America since the sixties. The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s sophomore album does, as promised, spring forth from the Rolling Stones’ long-underrated 1967 masterpiece their Satanic Majesties Request, copping not only Mick and Keith’s leering bad-boy attitude but also their their rock-and-roll-circus spirit. Opening with the brilliant All Around You (Intro), a tongue-in-cheek guide to the mind-altering journey ahead, the record is a kaleidoscopic, drug-fueled freakout – like the Stones’ namesake album, Second Request is painted by eastern drones and psychedelic tangents, each track bubbling with dozens of sound effects including sitars, mellotrons, farfisas, didgeridoos, tablas, congas, and glockenspiels.
