lord jeff Lord Jeff (CD, £10.50)label: Ecstatic Peace
Lord Jeff released stray tapes and CDRs which floated around the Pioneer Valley like so much spring pollen. They have some familial connection to The Entrance Band. Ecstatic Peace founder Thurston Moore’s niece Louise Erdman reported she had been singing backups in this band Lord Jeff so Uncle T went to see them at Union Pool in Brooklyn one fine evening and was entirely charmed. Plans went into action to release something/anything by these cats and after many moons of them playing in front of single digit audiences they got it together to record this amazing and beautiful disc. Think the genuine heart music of Buffalo Springfield and Wooden Wand with sweet Garcia moves and a punk gleam in the eye. Chief songwriter Sean Goggins is a gentle force of inspiration and his sound and vision are captured lovingly by the legendary Justin Pizzoferrato (J Mascis, T Moore, Fat Worm of Error etc.).
