Album Review

After a brief stint on Elektra Records, Jennyanykind went back to their independent ways, producing 1998's Big Johns at their new recording studio of the same name for Yep Roc records. A reputable '90s East Coast roots rock outfit, guitarist/vocalist Michael Holland, drummer Mark Holland, and bassist Cliff Browne do nothing to sully their considerable musical reputation. Perhaps a little too lo-fidelity than the group intended, the gritty production featured on Big Johns, while purposefully uneven, can get a tad distracting as band members drop notes and even shift into incorrect song sections. Generally, this kind of recording absolutism is refreshing, and Jennyanykind certainly have the spirit and musical chops to pull it off, but things do get a little garbled on this disc, and it isn't always cute. Listeners that aren't afraid of some muffled vocals and that can handle an occasionally overwhelming bass mix are advised to check out this otherwise splendid roots/folk/blues recording.

Customer Reviews

This album is great

While a bit more lo-fidelity than the other Jennyanykind records, this record has the strongest songs, the most interesting lyrics, and a general good feeling to it. They were feeling it when they made this one. It is by far my favorite out of all their records and definitely the one that has stood up over the years.

Biography

Formed: 1991 in North Carolina

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Formed in North Carolina in 1991, Jennyanykind began their career as a grungy alternative rock group. They started releasing independent albums at first, but their sound slowly began to twist into something more psychedelic and playful. By the time Elektra signed them for 1996's Revelater, they had formed quite an interesting combination of styles. They were dropped from the label after one unsuccessful release, but they moved to Yep Roc Records soon after and resumed their release...
