The debut EP by Creaming Jesus. New and unplayed.
Creaming Jesus have been visiting this planet on and off since 1988.
Created by the nucleus of Andy, Tally and Roy, the band released their first 12" E.P. 'Nailed Up For Nothing' through House Of Dolls in 1989 and were signed to Jungle Records later that year after touring with Junior Manson Slags.
Subsequently they released two more E.P.'s; 'Mug', and 'Bark' (featuring a memorable slaughtering of The Cure's 'A Forest'), both gaining them a growing following. In 1990 Creaming Jesus went on tour with Fields Of The Nephilim to co-incide with their debut album 'Too Fat To Run, Too Stupid To Hide'.
The band returned almost immediately to the studio to record two more singles, 'Deadtime' and 'Ditchdweller V' ('Single of the Issue', Raw).
Their second album, 'Guilt By Association' produced by Brian Chuck New, stormed the top ten in the indie chart, as they toured the length and breath of the country. A further session yielded the original 'Headrush' E.P. which co-incided with a full 4 week UK tour and also heavily dented the indie charts. Overseas demand led to their first three singles being compiled for an album 'It's Dance Magic'.
Creaming Jesus's songs provide sparkling insight and social comment, confronting head-on such issues as sexual and racial harassment, exploitation of animals, the destruction of the planet, and the general collapse of humanity in an intense, explosive style. All members draw on their diverse influences to create a disturbing musical hybrid.
For their third album, (released at the end of August 1994), the band took time off from touring to prepare the new material and after much planning recorded with (the now Grammy bestowed) Dave Fridmann of Mercury Rev as producer in Sweetfish, a desolate barn in upstate New York. The result of this experiment being the new album 'Chaos for the Converted', proceeded by the single 'Hamburg'; both of which show a new mutation of their intense style.
Melody Maker's assessment of C.J. in a recent live review said, "They are perfect. A resolutely hideous crew of cyberpunks, whose set is the product of a howling liaison between 'Diamond Dogs' and Beelzebub. C.J. are one of the noisiest things I've been faced with. Ever. I love this band."
