JERICHO - JERICHO (1972)

By Del Tigre



What's up gang? I haven't had time to post in the past couple of months because I've been busy with my drinking. You understand. But I recently stumbled across an album so fucking rad that I couldn't NOT share. Jericho is a psychedelic hard rock band from Israel circa 1972. I did some research and discovered that the members originally played in a band called the Churchills, at some point changed their name to Jericho Jones, and later shortened that to Jericho.

But none of that matters to me. The only thing I care about is that I haven't stopped listening to this album since I found it. That almost never happens to me, especially not with obscure bands like this. I am somewhat of an amateur expert on drugged up rock music, and let me tell you, this album delivers. The first song comes on like Frank Black crossed with a lighter version of Kyuss, then at about the two-minute mark, drops into a ripping later-Butthole Surfers-style chorus. In 1972. But wait, don't take my word for it:




Check out the one comment on the Youtube page: "This is what music is meant to sound like." I fully agree.

First wanted to say that I prefer the option of listening to a sample via YouTube (over downloading mp3 to computer). In my case, I listen at work.

Also, this song is groovy, man.

I am not sure if this is exactly what music has to sound like, but it is very... hum, lets say interesting. I am going to download this and see what it has to deliver, but this thing is way too psychedelic for me.
