Album Review

Brother JT (born John Terlesky, but called "JT" most of his life) was previously a longtime member of Bethlehem, PA's terrific garage rockin'Original Sins. Later he associated himself with Vibrolux, an experimental group who are part of southeastern Pennsylvania's Psychedelphia scene (along with the Photon Band, Three 4 Tens, Asteroid Number Four, and a few others). He's also known for playing infrequent solo shows, often performing while seated on a folding chair, a bottle in a brown paper bag at his feet. For these events, Brother JT lapses into a kind of a manic street preacher-cum-bluesman persona. His nom de guerre, by the way, was suggested by noted music scribe Byron Coley, the benefactor of his first album (Descent, which contained two long suites for guitar and song), who thought high priest Brother JT looked like "a kind of defrocked monk hermit." JT seems to be influenced by an accumulation of eccentric "outsider" rockers (Roky Erickson, Skip Spence) and influential bohemian underground groups (like the Fugs) and albums (like Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention's Freak Out!). Maybe We Should Take Some More? — recorded in the Living Room, West Easton, PA, in winter/spring 2000 with various friends joining in at times — is part of a series of more than ten Brother JT solo efforts, a mostly accessible yet eccentric smash-up of styles and genres crammed full of primitive pop, innerspace guitar wankery, and acid folk ballads. There are backwards-masked, double-tracked, and flanged vocal effects; throbbing drums; the occasional woodsy recorder; and brain-clotting feedback from droning and swirling guitars completely unencumbered by prog rock claptrap or faked or forced crescendos like your average bin-clogging indie rock/emocore mewl.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Brother JT (aka John Terlesky) combines classic psychedelic pop elements with unique and often spiritual lyrics. While his solo efforts are usually low-key affairs, he often teams up with Vibrolux for a louder, more rock-oriented version of the Brother JT sound. Terlesky played in Philadelphia's garage rock group Original Sins from the mid-'80s to the mid-'90s, and Vibrolux includes members...
