“THERAPY? are pleased to name ANDY GILL as the producer/mixer for their forthcoming album. Andy has worked on a host of diverse projects as a musician, producer, mixer and songwriter (Gang Of Four, Killing Joke, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Futureheads, Young Knives, The Jesus Lizard) etc…
Versions of new songs like “The Head That Tried To Strangle Itself”, “Low Winter Sun”,” I Told You I Was Ill” and “Mingusisyphus” illustrate the classic mix of intense instrumentation and dark pop that has made THERAPY? internationally renowned. Whilst most of their 90’s peers have been content to follow the options of rehash/reform/rollover, the UK trio have always carved their own unique musical furrow bolstered by a formidable live reputation and a stream of chart hits.
With the first half of 2008 spent writing and demoing, this exciting collaboration for THERAPY?’S 12th album proposes to be a career defining one. The as yet untitled album is due for release on DEMOLITION RECORDS imprint label, DR2 early 2009.
Jesse James Dupree has released a second video in support of his new solo album, Rev It up and Go-Go.
You can read the review of the album below. Check out the video for Bite, here.
After seeing Jackyl live in 2007, I have really started to appreciate their brand of no frills hard rock. I always liked the band, but I they were far from my favorite. I had to check out the latest work from Jesse James Dupree.
Those of you looking for some new Jackyl styled tunes, may like what you hear on the first half of the disc (Saturday Night). The tunes are a good mix of hard and southern rock.
The second half of this CD may have some people scratching their heads.
The half of the disc coined Sunday Morning (Old Fashioned Radio Show) is more of a country, rock, blues hybrid that is different from the music that Dupree has been known for.
The first half of the disc is so much in the same vein as Jackyl, I wonder why, Dupree didn’t save the tunes for another CD with the band that made him famous (or is that infamous). It may not be Dupree’s best work, but it does rock. 1095 days is the only song that takes a detour, but it reminds me of a few of the other tunes that Jackyl has done.
The second half of the disc, isn’t my favorite, but it does have its moments. Fred and Richard Young from the Kentucky Headhunters join Dupree’s group for some fun sounding country rock.
The Party is a honky tonk sounding tune with some cool slide guitar. I actually like this tune pretty well.
Maybe it isn’t fair to compare this music to Jackyl. This isn’t a Jackyl CD, and with the second half of this disc formulated to sound like an old fashioned radio show, it becomes something different. At first, I didn’t like the second half of this disc at all, but a few spinning this in my car a few times, I have warmed up to it somewhat.
This CD may appeal to both Jackyl and Kentucky Headhunter fans. This isn’t Dupree’s best work, but it is entertaining. To find out more information on Dixie Inc, and to hear some of the songs on this disc, check out the band’s myspace page.
