John Vernon Forbes is the founding member of Tijuana Hercules, but before that he played in Phantom 309 (with Mac McNeilly, future drummer of The Jesus Lizard) and Dirt, before settling in Chicago where he formed Mount Shasta, one of the founding SKiN GRAFT Records acts. Mount Shasta went on to release three albums and a collaborative LP with Japan’s Space Streakings before disbanding. He is also a Illustrator/Cartoonmaker.
Their new album ‘Evening Dresses’ does not fit at all on Fuzzy Sun. Yet here its, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Seven tracks of Groovy and trippy blues tinged swamp music. It is quite possible the groove and the sax that is getting to me. The music feels feverish and wild. This album is one of the few exceptions (because its not noise or psych) I will post it on Fuzzy Sun because it is dooo good from start to finish.
Listen and enjoy.
