ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jim Jacobi called his bands from 1978-1998 CRAP DETECTORS.
Now he is burning out tunes of all genres with two experienced musicans to move ahead and behind in an unorderly fashion. This is the atom bomb of garage music.

Jim Jacobi IS punk rock personified!
I’ve reviewed a couple of Jim Jacobi’s CDs before, and in those reviews I have recounted the history Jim Jacobi and his bands The Crap Detectors and his present incarnation, the Joe Jakimbi Band. For a recounting of that history, read previous reviews, or better yet, go to Jim’s website, and read the history there! He has played music for a long time, and has been a punk rocker as long as punk rock has existed! Those of you wanting to find fame and fortune traveling the Punk path need to pay attention to this man’s body of work; Jim Jacobi IS punk rock personified!

The CD that I am currently reviewing is the first CD that was recorded using the name Jim Jacobi and the Joe Jakimbi Band. Eleven recordings precede this one, where recording was done as ‘The Crap Detectors’. Jim’s sound doesn’t alter much though, from the Crap Detector’s sound! This CD is full of twists and turns, both musically and lyrically! He does instrumentals, like the opening track, ‘Arm Drop’, a free-form guitar jam over bass and drum vamping; and ‘Breaker’, which is more like a Dick Dale surf instrumental, or a track from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack! He also does straight-ahead rock and roll tunes, like ‘Kick Me’, a song about a love interest that only wants to kick him when he’s down, or ‘Predator’, which has several great rock elements to it; through the whole track, there is a backward guitar sound similar to the guitar in Jimi Hendrix’ ‘Are you Experienced’; it really is impressive!

Jim also has a penchant for doing songs that fall more in the vein of a style like Johnny Cash. ‘Bad Quarterback’ is this type of tune. He pulls it off well; the song has the story going for it, and the countrified sound that Johnny Cash made famous!

Other songs have different styles, but the main factor tying them together is the humor of the lyrics. ‘Lesbian Lover’ and ‘So Little Time’ are classic Jim Jacobi! My favorite track on this one is a song called ‘Shit Happens’; it basically describes the way I feel about life sometimes. ‘Shit Happens/But Why’s it have to happen to me?’ is the tag line of this song, and a way that helps all of us to identify with the artist. We have felt that way at some point or another, and Jim just has a way of expressing those feelings for us in a humorous way. And, I might say, the song displays his ability to play another style of music; Rockabilly!

Other songs on this CD are just as good; if I don’t mention them, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like them. I definitely have my favorites, but I don’t ever skip a song! I would feel like I was missing something if I did!

Jim Jacobi has a great knack for surrounding himself with very talented musicians, as well. There is a track on this CD called ‘Brad’s two minutes of Miles/Real Wild Thing’, which features a freeform trumpet solo from backing instrumentalist Brad Krieger. It has to be heard as well. Honestly, every song on every CD that I have heard includes great musicians. Many times, the recordings are reproduced from very primitive source tapes, but I don’t think I have heard anything that sounds bad. Of course, there are imperfections because of the conversion process; but, I don’t ever have the feeling that the quality of the musicianship is sub-par. There are other CDs that I hear that have been recorded with the latest technologies and lousy musicians that I wouldn’t possess at any price. The pieces that I have
from Jim Jacobi are treasured pieces!

Try to find a copy of this CD if you can. I know a lot of his older stuff is out of print, but it can be found. If all else fails, contact Jim and see if there is any way to get copies. He hasn’t asked for my copies back, but if worse comes to worse, I’ll give mine up if someone can hear it and appreciate it for what it is! Great music from a great musician!--Mark Lush, Midwestbands.com, 6/6/03 *Listen to Jim Jacobi on MWB RADIO!
