What he said.
ound this in the bins this week on my quarterly trip down to Wax Trax Records. Another release I seem to have overlooked - originally reissued in 2008 and again November 2013. And, apparently, J.T. (John Henry Timmis IV) passed away from alcoholism in 2002 surely sealing his (unfortunate) fate as a Punk Legend. 10 tracks compiling (5?) singles released between 1977 and 1987. Tracks range from Reed Inspired opening cut to full on thrashers as well as a couple Chris Bell-like acoustic takes. While I'm always more the atmospheric type, I'm always into anything fucked up art rock or punk. Ohio had their Ubu and Rep-alikes and Chicago seemed to have something similar, or at least with this J.T. (not to be confused, of course, with our fellow Brother JT).Killer heavy paste on sleeves including an updated DVD that I have yet to watch. Certainly a great archival release essential to check out.
