While looking around Amazon yesterday, I stopped on the page for the new Brian Jonestown Massacre album, Aufheben. There I found a stream-of-consciousness ”review” of the album by Andrew Morton. I emailed a link to friends who I thought would like to read it, but, when they followed the link, they found that Amazon had deleted the post. Amazon should not have done that, because it was a very good read. Luckily I had it saved in my cache for your reading pleasure:
i am so pissed to because they came to dallas the other day and i got so wasted on cheap cheap vodka and that was the first show of the tour i only got to see them play for like 20 minutes such a tease then i started puking everywhere probably cause i take stupid stupid methadone and started feeling so bad haveing like minor withdrawals thank god i am getting off this crap soon i HATE IT i almost went to austin to see them but my friend pussed out and i didnt have a ride guess i will have to wait another three years for them to come unless i get to go to chicago to see them i really hope so at leat i got to meet anton it kinda sucks though because my friend asked him what he thought about dig and he said thats like asking a cheese maker what its like to make cheese right before he makes cheese it was pretty funny made my friend look like a dum dum you could tell hes really smart to of course but man does it suck that happened i have seen them before though in 09 and its cool i caught there new songs they played stairway to the best party in the universe which was really amazing and i want to hold your other hand waking up to hand grenades viholliseni maalla anemone a couple of there other songs then thats when everything started sucking for me totally i really hope i get to see them in chicago so bad and it sucks even more cause my brother was like there biggest fan no joke he loved them to death he followed up on everything anton ever did and he passed away last july taking morphine and drinkin a ton its like the worst story ever i dont even want to tell it cause we got like in a big fist fight three days before he died and on the 4 july just being drunk and stupid and we really we didnt talk the last three days of his live then the day it happened we had to work together and i got up and my aunt was already up so i asked her to go wake my brother up and she said will you but i was getting dressed and stuff so i almost went but i said will you please go get him up and she said ok the next thing i konw shes yelling for me to get down there and when i walk in his room my dad is giving my brother cpr and he was just really really white it was horrible i was freaking out but in the back of my mind i thought when the paramedics would get there they would give him the naloxone shot and he would wake up because he has od before and they gave him the shot and he woke up but when the paramedics got there and they gave him the shot and he didnt wake up i knew he was gone it the worst thing thats ever happened to me of course but the cool thing about it is he passed leaning up against his bed with his guitar in his hands and lap no joke thats how he would of wanted it he always knew he was gonna die at an early age he was really destructive to his body and a bad junky he was down here to get away from dope in kansas city mo but it didnt work we still dont know if he od or suffocated on his puke i think he suffocated otherwise i think that naloxone shot would of worked but im not sure i just wish he would of been at the show me so bad he loved bjm to death really
And here’s a video of “I Wanna Hold Your Other Hand” from the album.
There is a much shorter post there by the same author, but it pales in comparison to the above.
