The Brian Jonestown Massacre return with The Ravonettes

“What I want you to understand is that Hitler is famous and infamous. As a person, I am infamous – but as Anton from Brian Jonestown Massacre I’m practically famous – just as Hitler.” The last time we spoke to Anton Newcombe he assured us he was not the ‘volatile, tantrum-throwing, psychotic, abusive jerk’ we saw in Dig! but a guy who would much rather talk about obscure Islamic sects, Philip K. Dick, and alpha-wave simulators than fight with Courtney Taylor Taylor.

The infamous Mr Anton Newcombe will return with The Brian Jonestown Massacre this May to show off tunes from album number nineteen, Aufheben. They will be joined by Denmark duo Ravonettes who were last here in 2008 for Cherry Rock.
