The Jimmy C - The Jimmy C (self titled)

The Jimmy C - The Jimmy C (2006)

The self-titled second album from The Jimmy C presents the listener a more rock sound with breakthrough innovations in Low-Fi recording - still using only 4-Track cassette and stereo digital polishing. The Jimmy C are even more "songy" this time around, yet still very eclectic with only 2 full instrumental tracks. The Ennio Morricone tinged "El Deserto..." paints a broad desolate vista and make a perfect soundtrack to a never-realised spaghetti western. The vicious stumbling "Your Corpse Is A Whore" (brutal title!) falls off the back of a drunk & beaten horse and walks straight into the poppy "I Want Her", but as if to make sure we don't think The Jimmy C are taking themselves too seriously, they've thrown in "The Ballad Of Myron Bunt" & "The Ballad Of Byron Munt" both roughly 20 sec long and showcasing the sillier side of country music. The song "Hi-Fi In Low-Fi" was pieced together from "Optigan" rhythm loops (see:
) with guitar and percussion added on to the loop track. As a bonus at the end of the album they've put the all 16 tracks of the previous album ("Project E.G.O") playing simultaneously. "The Jimmy C" is another difficult album to nail to a genre. If you liked "Project E.G.O" you'll certainly like this one or, if you like the music of Ennio Morricone, Crazy Horse, The Zombies, The Supersuckers and Ween you may be mildly offended by this album.
