Wandering Oak: Paul Jacobs (CA)

January 14 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Wandering Oak brings you:
• Paul Jacobs • (Canada. Stolen Body Records)
Splenetic Montreal psychedelic / garage madman Paul Jacobs used to do everything himself. Wrote the songs. Played all the parts. Churned out 5 full length albums on his Bandcamp, drew the artwork himself, and has lashed out raging DIY rock & roll in a one-man musical freight train putting both John Dwyer and Bob Log III to shame. Renaissance man right here!

He’s got a 4-piece garage band now – Paul Jacobs & the Big City Babies – but he’s no less raw. It just frees him up to destroy the stage on and off it. He still does loads of art, and he’ll probably do everything else himself, if given the chance. Except getting himself on Spotify, it seems – don’t bother looking. There’s some other Paul Jacobs (pianist) taking up that oxygen.

“Absolutely demonic take on punk rock”– Consequence of Sound

“Must-have: experimental, melodic, intense, and fun. Everything is there” – Still in Rock

FFO: Ariel Pink / Ty Segall / Guided By Voices / Thee Oh Sees

You know the drill. Visceral zombie surf, cloaked in fuzz like Buffalo Bill. Real horrorshow.
“Totally nails punk nihilism, post-riptide surf guitar, songs about bad sex and lizards. Come receive your orgy name!” – me
