Jess and the Ancient Ones The Horse and Other Weird Tales LP
Roadburn / Burning World Mailorder
Third time around for Jess and the Ancient Ones sees them take a magical mystery trip to the dark side of the sixties as seen through the eyes of modern-day occult rock musicians. This time the band went for an organic and human approach and produced a very old fashioned album, 9 songs and 31 minutes, recorded and mixed together with their live sound engineer.
Groovy, heavy, psychedelic beat music? Hard death rock? Occult head-exploding meltdown? All of them and more. “I cannot put a label on it, I just make it as it comes”, says band guitarist and composer Thomas Corpse, who also created the lysergic cover art to The Horse and Other Weird Tales.
