Have sympathy for the tympani

The world’s loudest and nastiest record is out there.  The Jim Jones Revue, a new-ish garage rock band have clocked up a couple of albums of roughhouse rock’n’roll and I think the latest tune doing the rounds of radio ‘Dishonest Jon’ is pretty neat.  The one to avoid unless you have eardrums of depleted uranium is their compilation of early singles ‘Here To Deafen-sorry- Save Your Soul’.  Recorded live and apocalyptically loud (in a confined space I’ll bet), it is grossly distorted throughout and at high volume is torture.  Skip this and go see them live, but for god’s sake wear earplugs if you need your lugs to do anymore after the gig than support a pair of sunglasses!
