Jack Name – Light Show (Needs Hi-Res Photo)

On Light Show, Los Angeles musician John Webster Johns establishes his alter ego, Jack Name, as an irreverent master of the recording studio. He writes a song and then fucks with it, adding twisted overdubs and sound manipulations until it becomes a vague portrait of itself. Notes don’t always go together, instruments are out of tune, vocals out of key: Jack Name plays by his own set of left field musical ideologies, recalling the disintegrations of Chrome and the candid humor of Ween.
