Our man in The Bay, Not-An-Intern Noah has been sitting on this bit of recommendation for weeks. He’s been writing threatening letters and sending angered starved carrier pigeons our way for weeks, and finally we’re giving in.
Take it away Noah, take it away.
Thanks to mastermind of music, Justin Gage over at Aquarium Drunkard, I’ve been happily discovering and rediscovering this little gem of an album from J.K. & Co. for weeks now. Sadly, due to massive brain trauma from heavy drinking, I’ve never thought once about bringing this delightful piece of music to you the monsterously minded fans of Light In The Attic.
J.K. & Co. were a the one-and-done brain child of 15-year old music prodigy Jay Kaye. I’m as shocked as you that fifteen year-old kid could come up with anything but a good way of huffing glue, or a relatively poor way of gettin’ some. Instead Jay Kaye spent his time masterminding this brilliant bit of 1960s psychedelia. It’s trippy and wild and decidedly sad at some points and I feel as if every listen brings to mind some new discovery.
I have to recommend the second song on the album, “Fly” as it fills the empty spaces in my mind each and every day. Sadly, this was the first and last piece of music put together by this teen-dream, due to a series of disastrous marketing decisions and an inability to market himself as a live band.
