a perfect blast of trashy snotty garage punk for you here. The Black Jaspers are an erratic King Khan side project with Jasper Hood that may yet burst forth with something new, who knows? The first Black Jaspers record apparently sat on a shelf for years before he even decided to put it out. There’s been singles, odd (really odd) videos and even some live appearances. Recently the King has been putting up various rare bits and pieces on bandcamp and the Jaspers second album ‘Scum Of The Moon’ went up the other day – Originally from 2012 it seems and long out of print it’s your chance to hear, and own, this perfect little blast of scuzz punk, there’s even a preposterously overwrought self-mythologising manifesto too
WE ARE THE MAGGOT INFESTED BIRTHDAY CAKE, THE SYPHILITIC BEAUTY QUEEN, THE TOWERING PALACE OF THE ABANDONED SKYSCRAPER.WE ARE EVERYWHERE.WE ARE THE SHADOWS. WE ARE EVERYTHING YOU LONG TO BE BUT FOR YOUR OWN SELF IMPOSED ANGST.WE ARE YOUR FACE MIRRORED IN THE WINDOW OF YOUR CELL.
WE ARE THE SCUM OF THE MOON.
LUNAR SOLIDERS OF DESTINY
