Released: March 2003

Surely the most maddeningly compulsive bassline of the decade, and not even actually played on a bass guitar. That’s just how Jackie rolls. A cocky, strutting, monster of paranoiac ego-puffing, Jack frets and frays (“And I’m talking to myself at night because I can’t forget/back and forth through my mind behind a cigarette”) then seethes and spits at mysterious adversaries in a strop-storm of whipping and squalling guitar, before deciding, as you do, to up sticks to Wichita and work on a farm. Again: how he rolls. The similarly psychotic and amazing video, with its endlessly regressing triangles and triangles and TRIANGLES is not to be watched in a delicate state. (EM)
