The Brian Jonestown Massacre Tepid Peppermint Wonderland: A Retrospective Volume Two on 2LP
Tepid Peppermint Wonderland: A Retrospective Volume Two includes the second half of the double CD Tepid Peppermint Wonderland: A Retrospective (2004), remastered for vinyl. Following Tepid Peppermint Wonderland Volume One (2004), Volume Two continues to mine the period of 1995 through 2004 and includes key tracks from all of The Brian Jonestown Massacre's albums as well as live recordings and many otherwise unreleased tracks.
The Brian Jonestown Massacre is a psychedelic rock band originally from San Francisco, California, led by guitarist and singer Anton Newcombe. Beginning in 1995, the group released numerous albums, first on BOMP!, the label that gave them their start, and later on TVT Records and Tee Pee Records. The band was essential in the development of the modern U.S. garage scene, and many LA and SF musicians got their start playing with Newcombe, including Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Originally Newcombe was heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones' psychedelic phase (the band name is a reference to Stones guitarist Brian Jones and Peoples Temple founder Jim Jones), but his work in the 2000's expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating the UK shoegazing genre of the 1990's and incorporating influences from world music, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music.
