JOSHUA JUGBAND 5 was the name used by Swedish musician JAKOB OLAUSSON (see releases on DESTIJL) for two limited-edition CDRs a few years back. In 2002, the self-titled JJ5 debut was released by my label Slippy Town. Recorded at home on 4-track, Jakob used guitar and percussion to make 30 minutes of pure grade-L" instrumental psych-out, low-key wall-rumblin groove, and heavy livin-room glow. The disc contained four untitled jam-gems. The JJ5 follow-up, Damascus Doldrum, was released by Ramadan in 2003. This one has three more untitled tracks clocking in at just over 30 minutes. Again, its filled with great psych guitar distortion, dirty drone n bellow, caveman drums, and unknown tongues. If you dig the Godz, the Screamin Mee-Mees, Silver Apples, the Twinkeyz, Mike Rep & The Quotas, Hawkwind, Amon Duul, etc.-heres some MORE, but without all the words to get in the way of your wander. And now, thanks to the good folk at Gulcher, you can get these two long-gone goodies on a silver disc thatll last longer than them dainty little CDRs."- Eddie Flowers.
