ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Unlocked from time and renegades from an alternate history, Bad Jacket has been rocking multiple timelines since they became the darlings of the Paisley Underground LA music scene almost 30 years ago.

In that post-punk rock era, Bad Jacket was known for their haunting original songs featuring the sometimes soaring, sometimes subtle lead guitars of Jon Plutte, the quirky, story-length lyrics of Rod Gilchrist, the spine-crunching bass lines of William Oaks, and the precision percussive stick-work of drummer Jon Christ.

Like many of their contemporaries, Bad Jacket struggled with their identities and the influences of the party scene, leading to onstage meltdowns, public outbursts, and eventually a breakup.

The four members scattered in four directions. Plutte joined the growing wave of metal bands, touring the US with the band Death Splurge. Gilchrist went in an almost completely opposite direction, traveling to Canada to immerse himself in the Canadian country scene. William Oaks returned to the University system to teach music history, while Christ followed his heart around the world seeking spiritual guidance and eventually settling in as a monk initiate at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.

-- Or at least, that is how they all remember it. -
