Jesus Music (Focus F33/24) 1975? Scotland *
Scotland again with another super good (and super rare) rock/psych goodie featuring four guys and one girl. A rather unique raw bluesy underground sound that’s heavily infused with a magical mix of wah-wah, fuzz and tremolo guitar (including some cool solo stretches). Not necessarily hard rocking, but definitely garagy, grungy and sporting an edge. Similar to the primitive style and lean arrangements of the Trinity House album, but much better, more tuneful, more psychedelic. ‘Disillusion’ is described as “an aggressive rock opus” and it’s mightily aglow with the whole garage/psych thing. Nice crude slide guitar action on ‘You Always Will’ and the title track. They muster up a catchy ‘Suzie Q’ kind of groove on ‘Going Down’. A couple very pretty softer cuts with cello (‘Nothing Is Real’ and ‘Jesus, I Think I Need You’). Same obscure Scottish label as the excellent Sanctus album. See also the EP section. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
