Album Review

Riot grrrl '90s act Jack Off Jill set themselves apart from bands like L7 and Bikini Kill with a unique ploy: acid-tongued lyrics belted from the itty-bitty voice of frontwoman Jessicka. The singer's childlike timbre partnered with typical alt-rock guitar thrash was a cleverly ironic statement, marring demure femininity with unforgiving and cathartic vulgarity. While the nasty/nice juxtaposition didn't have the strength or staying power to lift Jack Off Jill out of relative obscurity, it did earn them a cult following who should readily approve of their 2006 compilation Humid Teenage Mediocrity. This disc showcases 24 of the band's best songs, drawing not only from their two full-length studio albums but also from cassette demos and 7"s that never saw an official release. The disc lacks some fan favorites like "Strawberry Gashes" and the group's cover of the Cure's "Love Song," but fans will probably still want to pick it up for tunes like "Everything's Brown" and "Chocolate Chicken," which have never before been widely available.

Fave album by them

Amazing

I found Jessicka Addams(the vocalist) from Roman Dirge, actually and didn't think I'd like this band, but I do. I love it. It is absolutely amazing and I can't believe how unknown they are! If you love a woman with a dreamy, beautiful voice that can also do some awesome screaming, then this is for you. The songs are catchy, fun and also creepy. When Jessicka screams, she actually reminds me of The Ammity Affliction a bit. But I should probably warn you that a lot of the songs on Humid Teenage Medicority are demos of songs that appear on Sexless Demons and Scars. So do your research first and see if you want to purchase the demos. Anyway, great album.

Biography

Formed: 1992

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

South Florida's Jack Off Jill is a sultry version of what Marilyn Manson could be, but not entirely a passionate foursome. Formed in 1992, Jack Off Jill's raging stage presence and lyrical intensity brought the band national recognition without the powerful backing of major-label support or industry management. Enigmatic frontwoman Jessicka, bassist Robin Moulder, drummer Laura Simpson, and guitarist Ho-Ho Spade released a handful of 7"s and a slew of EPs, including their Marilyn Manson-produced...
