It’s easy to guess Acid Baby Jesus’ shtick just going on their name but to those who aren’t already in the know: don’t be fooled into thinking these are just another quasi-religious, LSD-loving psych-rock band - there’s a reason these Greek garage-rockers have been championed so highly in the European scene. Acid Baby Jesus are less concerned with the spiritual and tripped-out realms that their name foreshadows than they are with pure hip-shaking, rock’n’roll hedonism.
Formed in Athens in 2009 the four-piece have two LPs behind them, ‘LP’ and ‘Selected Recordings’, and after a long three-year wait they’re back with their third album ‘Lilac Days’ – their first on Fuzz Club Records. The album sees ABJ at their best; their frenetic garage-rock distilling a hazy mix of 60s Western psychedelic pop, traditional Eastern folk and the scuzzy R'n'R sounds of The Stooges or Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Limited to 500 on black 180g vinyl. In heavy gatefold sleeve.
