JASON HENN - THE PARACHUTE CANDIDATE
third uncle 2016, edition of ?
HONEY RADAR - IGNORE THE BELLS
chunklet 2016, edition of 150
two eps of intriguing garage rock, a cut above the rest of that scene as it exists today at least by my measure, perhaps a hold over from last decade's weirdo garage punk heyday riding out the very last ripples in rather impressive fashion or just unboxing dusty decade old demos, except back then apparently HENN was dealing in "non music" sound collage, and that's where the intriguing factor comes in as there's still a thread of that here, woven into these short n sweet quirky damaged pop tunes channeling obvious favorites - VELVETS and STOOGES and SYD BARRETT by way of FLYING SAUCER ATTACK and GUIDED BY VOICES and SIMPLY SAUCER - tough to differentiate between "JASON HENN" and "HONEY RADAR" - i suspect/expect there isn't a band - in any case, this is probably the closest anyone will ever get to filling the SIC ALPS shaped hole in my heart
