Bitchin Bajas / Bonny Prince Billy: Epic jammers And Fortunate little Ditties LP +12"
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties is simple and stark and empyrean and inspirational...and pretty modal, too - probably never more than three chords! - as Bonny and the Bajas pursue the life of the spirit down ever-fading vapor trails, in a bottomless (and topless - let 'em loose!) space.
Epic Jammers and Fortunate Little Ditties contains moments of tranquility and trance, with the players integrating their separate ways, vibing off each other, making songs together. Bonny is at his spirit-melting celestial best wandering through a lifetime of fortunes that amount, when incanted, to a prayer to the god of many names.
The Bajas' access to the universal aural paintbox is unparalleled; their reach is deep. And it all went down onto a 2-track reel-to-reel in primitive left-right seps that helped to define their ability to finish it in mixing. These WERE jams, with whatever preparation, gear, thought and cords - vocal and electric - backgrounded, in support of intuition and what existed AT THE MOMENT.
