ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
UFO JIM...LISTED In 2004 And 2005 GRAMMY GUIDE (Alternative Rock) ***www.Pandora.com *** www.Lastfm.com...***
"UFO Jim inhabits a strange world where giant bugs wear business suits, UFO's fly over Mexico, beautiful princesses live in trailer parks, Santa Claus is a lecherous, booze swilling bluesman, and aliens lurk around every corner waiting to abduct the unsuspecting. Combining bar band blues-rock with psychedelia and avant-garde influences, a wickedly grinning, appropriately bizarre sense of humor, some electronica style beats, and a dash of Calvert era Hawkwind, UFO Jim spins his crazy tales like some wild roadside prophet who's seen a bit too much..." (Reviewer-Jeff Fitzgerald--www.aural-innovations.com)

E-mail Letter from Garry Lee...DJ from England-...
Cheers Jim!
I think "Buddy Holly Girl" is a fantastic song and really does have great potential...it could be a massive hit record"...."Why not try contacting some of the bigger independent labels, I can't be the only person to see the potential of "Buddy Holly Girl", if I had a label I would release it tomorrow!"

UFO JIM..."Dancing With Aliens" (Caprice)"Retro-Futurist?
Out of this world? UFO Jim sings about um... alien abductions, the apocalypse and yes, even Kris Kringle! But he wraps these zany ideas in pretty good old-fashioned rock n' roll. Closely resembling the likes of Frank Zappa, ZZ Top, Kim Fowley, Captain Beefheart and Neil Young, this is visceral rock despite the celestial themes. I like it!"
Kevin Mathews (Singapore)-Reviewer

ARTIST DIRECT REVIEW...of UFO JIM (By Sean Westergaard)
With the release of "Dancing With Aliens", UFO Jim created quite a singular piece of work. At first, it doesn't really seem so strange: kind of boogie/blues rock with celestial subject matter, delivered in UFO Jim's cross between Johnny Dowd and Stan Ridgway drawl. However, by the time you hit the song "Dancing With Aliens", there is clearly something different going on. A drum machine kicks out a nearly hip-hop beat, the Hammond organ so prevalent on many tunes turns into a demented sampler, and UFO Jim solos with one of the strangest, most unearthly guitar tones ever heard, while saying "aliens" every once in a while, followed by crowd cheers. It's difficult to discern whether the strange production is a cheap necessity or sheer outer-space genius. "UFO's & Giant Insects" flirts with disco, with buzzing keyboards and Hammond giving it an almost gospel-like fervor. Lots of good Chicago references, too. Then there's "Kris Kringle Song", another disco-influenced number, featuring the divine holiday sentiment "I like the women/I like the blues/I like the drugs/And I like the booze". All this from a man who strongly resembles William Lee Golden the bearded giant from the Oak Ridge Boys. This is an album that truly deserves special notice from folks interested in the far fringes of pop. -Allmusic.com... www.artistdirect.com

Buddy Holly Cheesehead

It makes you want to change the your cheese diet to a new cheese
I was eating my cheese sandwich and serfing the web when I had visions of Aliens who like cheese telling me to check out these weird songs.I asked the aliens what cheese they liked best and they they said moon cheese and then I whoke up from the vision and there before me was UFO Jim's CD Baby page.So after listening to a couple of song clips I wanted to eat some moon cheese too.It has an out of this world boogy that will make aliens and humans want to dance.
Jim you really rock and your songs are the real cheese-BHC

ZZ Top on amyl nitrate poppers!!!
Extra strange-o! Meep meep meep! sounds like Charlie Daniels and ZZ Top on amyl nitrate poppers. If they have music in the fifth and sixth dimension, UFO Jim has the bossest sound around.

Laura T Lynch of Kweevak.com

Imaginative !
UFO Jim's songs are imaginative, blending the blues with rock, funk, hip-hop and a dash of celestial. His music has been described as "Frank Zappa jamming with ZZ Top". Jim writes lyrics that are filled with dark imagery and zany insights. His production methods at times are unorthodox but work in the context and diversity of UFO's music. 'China Belle' is the opening track with its funky beat and wild keyboards combined with chunky bass lines and Jim rapping about weird scene in San Francisco. 'Pretty Little Fiend' flows on a swirling B3 and an up-tempo, bluesy beat leading into the funny hook line "pretty . . . fiend". 'Kris Kringle Song' combines holiday cheer with a disco beat and festive keyboards. In contrast are the somewhat sinister lyrics filled with innuendo. If you are looking for unique rock with outlandish imagery , UFO Jim and his band is for you!

Don't work
The play song links on the website don't work. How can I buy your CD if I can't hear a sample of the music. Website needs some work.

An American Original
UFO Jim...Well, well...I think the guys is an American original! As a matter of fact I'm counting on the export of his CD to other countries to eliminate the trade deficit! I like him, will be buying his CD, and I mean that!

We're all pulling for ya UFO Jim, go get 'em!

Frelmek

Witty, Fun, and light-hearted.
I like it! Makes me laugh and I'm gonna buy it cause this world's just too full of Cheap Politicians and liars who waste my time. I'll be listening to THIS instead! Thanks for the much needed relief from the presidential campaign!
