Album Review

Red Red Meat's bluesy music could best be described as Exile On Main St.-era Rolling Stones on downers. While blues is known for its outpouring of sadness and/or depression, Red Red Meat adds a sense of paranoia to the blues-rock mix. Singer/guitarist Tim Rutili often mumbles his heartfelt lyrics a la Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis, but the honesty of his compositions more than makes up for it. The album has a rustic sound that only adds to their gloomy acoustic tunes (especially on "Smokey" and "Rusted Water") and rock numbers (the opener "Flank"). The album's true highlights, however, are the mopey "Stained & Lit" (picture a catatonic Billy Corgan strumming his guitar), the classic-rock swing of "Smokey Mountain Dbl. Dip," and the constantly evolving "Ball," which proves to be the best and most focused track on Jimmywine Majestic. Soon after the album's release, Red Red Meat landed the opening slot on friends Smashing Pumpkins' breakthrough Siamese Dream tour, which helped introduce Red Red Meat's original sound to a new audience.

Customer Reviews

jimmywine majical

in my opinion one of the best rock albums of the 90's. if you are a true fan of innovative underground music your collection is incomplete without this. this is one of those albums that will be with me for the rest of my life, even if I don't listen to it every day. I hope this review helps at least one person buy this because your life will be that much richer.

Rubbing Mirrors

Red Red Meat has got to be the most underrated alt. rock group of the 90s. While the modestly acclaimed Jimmywine Majestic is the closest the rowdy Chicago group ever came to courting a mainstream audience, its 1995 follow-up, Bunny Gets Paid, polishes the Jimmywine sound into a hauntingly beautiful medley definitely worth a listen. As for their self-titled debut--If you can find a copy, buy it! It is a shear explosion of creative energy (why "Rubbing Mirrors" was never a radio hit still escapes me); a "desert island" album if ever there was one...

Biography

Formed: 1991 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Shuffled from the deck of the Chicago folk-punk outfit Friends of Betty in 1990, the modern blues balladeers of Red Red Meat would provide a stunning counterpoint to the windy city's popular Material Issue/Urge Overkill glam-informed swagger. Tim Rutili (vocals, guitars) and Glynis Johnson (bass, vocals), both of founding members of Friends of Betty, along with new recruits Brian Deck (drums) and Crows guitarist Glenn Girard, released their first single, Snowball, in 1991.
