Thee Oh Sees, Zig Zags, Jack Name

Here are three bands turning psychedelic punk inside out in three different ways, with plenty of reverbed bellowing between them. Thee Oh Sees have the highest profile here - they do Pink Fairies, Pink Floyd and proto-punk all at once - so let's take the time to shine some extra laser light on Zig Zags and Jack Name. Zig Zags are the band Cliff Burton would have started with Jack Kirby, which means head-trip thrash-punk about humanoid aliens and alienated humans. And Jack Name is the L.A. visionary who matches Burroughs-ian lyrics to Brian Eno - ian ambition and ends up with something that sounds like lost Canadian legends Simply Saucer and reads like a Philip K. Dick short story. (He plays in the annihilating White Fence, too.) Freaks, mark your cave walls. This is one for the ages. Also Thursday, May 29.
