LISTEN: The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Something Else

It seems Anton has renamed/numbered all the tracks he's recently posted on You Tube into the form of a new album. You can listen to it here or here (see above also). Is this the finished album? Who knows! The Brian Jonestown Massacre are still my favourite band and I'lll always welcome something new. There aren't too many favourite bands out there who constantly evolve like Anton and co and keep things so interesting, yet alone, give you the chance to listen to new material as it's recorded. I've not heard the album all the way through yet, but have heard most of the songs and this album seems to draw on all the previous albums for inspiration and sounds in places like the BJM I first fell in love with, whilst still sounding like another step forward. 

Check out these great videos of Anton in the studio during the recording of his cover of Bobby Jameson's  'There's a War Goin' On'. I'd never heard of Bobby Jameson before, but after hearing this track wanted to find the album with this track on. The album is titled 'Songs of Protest and Anti-Protest' and was released under the name Chris Lucey in the US and Bobby Jameson in the UK. You can download it and read more about it here (direct link not working, so you need to scroll down the page a bit to find it!).
