The Brian Jonestown Massacre are unfortunately overlooked by two generations of young people who would rather take the main road so to speak, by making bands like the white stripes, the strokes, jet,and countless others the focus of what really belongs to The Brian Monestown massacre. Most sixteen to twenty five year olds have mainstream tastes and wouldn't recognize music that is truly special. The thing is, is that jonestown's real contemporaries, such as Oasis, or Beck, are million sellers due to industry dollars pumped into their respectfive careers. By the time 2020 rolls around, The Brian Jonestown Massacre will be considered a legendary act along the same vein as The Ramones or The Cramps. You'll see. The funniest part of it all, is going to be the seventy five band members who must grace the stage while Anton Newcombe says something snide or derogetory about the absurdity of it all.

I had never heard of them, so I went to Rhapsody and listened to a track called "Anenome". Not too bad at all! Learn something new every day...glad you made a comment!

Brian Jonestown Massacre - One of the most underrated/verge of unknown bands of all time! Mind you can we really call music "alternative" when it's at BMG and all over the top 40?

I'm assuming the Cult of the Milkshake is responsible for the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Curse those occultists!

How many people were killed in the the Brian Jonestown Massacre? And where is Jonestown? Is it in Alabama?

Anton sez his songs are all written in the key of A but have tremendous range--as recordings go maybe they are and maybe are not all in same key but they are often melodically slapdash and untextured--compare to Beatles for Sale's attack engineered by Norman Smith--still what's not to like?
