JALOPPY-OWNER'S MANUAL, LP, 1997, USA



An array of funhouse mirror inversions and candy coated manias arranged like a series of exquisite corpses and extruded during one furious and compressed 20 hour episode of weed and caffeine fueled malarky, Owner's Manual continues my shares of material by Vas Deferens Organization and its satellite projects, this one being the second outing by this particular concern, one which was developed as an extension of Matt Castille's production work on two LP's of loner psych weirdity by his one-time roommate J. Bone Cro (the first of which will be posted soon), with Jaloppy being the aptly monikered vehicle for VDO'S jerry rigged absurdist overhauls and de/re-constructions of J. and his bandmate's source material. Heard with twelve years hindsight, the debt to the Texas psych tradition seems palpable in a way that really isn't apparent elsewhere in our work. It also, by dint of its collision of psych pop song structure and surrealist acid mangle perhaps jibes more with the work we've done recently in Shits And Giggles alongside Ariel Pink than most of our other outings, though the approach here is much more rough and schizophrenic.

Hi!

Do you only post albums that you own yourself? I've got a few very rare albums (CDR, limited <200, Germany, end 90s, Noise) that I would like to get posted somewhere. They should not get forgotten ;-)

This is great, amazing songs plus wired'n'weird production, and is that the sweet ring mod sweep of an old Doctor Sample I hear on little bits on the tracks?! Hope so!
I look forward to hearing the J.Bone Cro stuff too, many thanks, and keep up the good work!

Anonymous-Thanks a bunch for the really lovely comment. Re the final track, having heard it again for the first time in a dog's age when I recorded this album for upload, I haven't the foggiest idea who we were channeling there, because I honestly have no memory whatsoever of making that particular piece! Funny how that goes sometimes. Love all the bands that you mention, though...
