Named in tribute to the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and his influence in introducing Eastern culture and music into the world of Western rock & roll, the Brian Jonestown Massacre formed in San Francisco, CA, in 1990. Some 40 different members passed through the group's ranks over the next half-decade, but their focal point always remained singer/guitarist Anton Newcombe, who along with bassist Matt Hollywood, guitarist Dean Taylor, organist Mara Regal, accordionist Dawn Thomas, drummer Brian Glaze, and "Spokesperson for the Revolution" Joel Gion, recorded the Massacre's 1995 shoegazer-influenced debut LP, 'Methodrone.' A collection of early recordings, 'Spacegirl and Other Favorites,' followed on the band's own Tangible label in early 1996, and was the first of four Brian Jonestown Massacre LPs to appear that year. Next up was the brilliant, 'Their Satanic Majesties' Second Request,' a full-blown homage to the Stones' glorious psychedelic-era excesses. Recorded live in the studio, the grittier 'Take It from the Man!' found the band exploring even broader territory. Finally, the year ended with the release of 'Thank God for Mental Illness,' a showcase for strong country and blues leanings.
