Acidjack reports:
JEFF the Brotherhood (yes, that is the proper capitalization) is a throwback to the nights when you rode around in your buddy’s Camaro, getting mellow on that patented combination of High Life and bong hits, listening to a brand of rock and roll that didn’t pretend to be more than it was – the soundtrack to a good time. As put it, “if Queens of the Stone Age were cooler, less annoyingly precise and more punk rock then they’d probably sound like The Brotherhood. There are monstrous riffs, gnarly solos, metal fuzz, sing along choruses. And then there’s PIL style atonal tunery and Misfits mosh parts.”

Opening for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists on a Sunday night is probably not the ideal way to experience JtB, a Nashville two piece that executes the well-received two-man-party-jam formula with great success. These are Friday night songs, and indeed, JtB rocked the house as if that were the case. From the Sabbath-inspired chords of “Mind Ride” straight through, JtB’s set was light on filler, heavy on fun and inflected with a sense of humor that is sometimes missing from bands on the NYC scene. Don’t miss them the next time they come through. No Camaro required.”

This set was recorded under the same circumstances as the Ted Leo recording and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
