RIYL: Ausmuteants, Ty Segall, The Buzzcocks
Label: ANTI FADE
Jake Robertson is a man of many faces. Suited with the prolificacy of fellow shapeshifter Ty Segall, Robertson has planted his experi-punk ethos into numerous groups, bands, tribes and side projects…like Ausmuteants, Drug Sweat, Leather Towel, The Snoozefests and many many more. Now, he’s taking a solitary path with Alien Nosejob, an album written, recorded and performed all by himself.
The first available track Television Sets doesn’t have time for the “1-2-3-4!” Dee Dee sound off, lunging forward with a lofi gut-rumbling riff from The Academy of The Ramones. Robertson snarls with the lip-curled swagger of a young and snotty Ty Segall, chanting “I don’t need no tv set, I don’t need the news” with enough confidence to stir up the ghosts of London’s Covent Garden in ’77. Can’t wait to hear the rest, and I hope Ol’ Jake sticks with the solo schtick for a while. Sounds like it suits him!
