"The best band to come out of the Southland in years."
BOB EZRIN, legendary producer (Pink Floyd – The Wall, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Alice Cooper)
The alternative rock band JABBERWOCK has a sound somewhat reminiscent of Radiohead, U2, Midnight Oil, and Julian Cope. The lyrics are influenced by Mark Eitzel, Elvis Costello, and Lou Reed.
LETTERBOMB is the 1996 follow up to SOUTHLAND, JABBERWOCK''s 1994 debut.
LETTERBOMB IS A DOWNLOAD RELEASE ONLY! It will be available for purchase on iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, and other digital download websites in the near future. Please check back at the Lost Dog Records website (https://www.tradebit.com) for updates.
WISHNEFSKY and producer/engineer extraordinaire MICHAEL JAMES (Hole, Too Much Joy, Jane’s Addiction, L7, New Radicals, founder of Alternator Records) produced LETTERBOMB. CHRIS BELLMAN of Bernie Grundman''s mastered the album.
LETTERBOMB heads in a darker direction than SOUTHLAND, as Wishnefsky continues his conceptual tour of Los Angeles. The lyrics address, among other things, the beckoning enticements and creeping danger prevalent throughout the City of Angels; the bleak disparities between the haves and have-nots; and the confusion and anger that lie beneath the surface of the beautiful faces that sail over the freeways like glamorous wraiths.
Musically, LETTERBOMB is more guitar driven and a bit more raw than SOUTHLAND. Yet, clever melodies and chord progressions still abound as Jabberwock is far more sophisticated than your basic rock band. This is music for your brain as much as for your soul.
JABBERWOCK broke up in 1997. Their other two albums, SOUTHLAND and HER FAITHFUL BATTALIONS, may be heard at the Lost Dog Records website: https://www.tradebit.com.
Coming soon - USE YOUR WORDS, the solo album from JABBERWOCK founding member WISHNEFSKY.
