Overview

Jesus Egg That Wept

Dax's second LP, Jesus Egg That Wept, takes its name from a headline in a supermarket tabloid. Here you'll find enough peculiar characters -- from psychotic star-crossed lovers to slave-holding bible thumpers -- to fill up an issue of The Weekly World News. Perhaps her best song to date, "Evil Honky Stomp" combines a looped sample from an old honky tonk number ("Jukebox Boogie") and some bad-to-the-bone guitar buzz for a tale of bigotry and religious hypocrisy. As always, Dax's most potent weapons are her vocals, which sound at points like Kate Bush's sardonic sister, while at other instances they approach near-Elvis impersonation. Karl Blake, Dax's former Lemon Kittens mate, lends a hand on one track. As on Pop-Eyes, the arrangements are spare but effective, with most songs recorded on a Teac 4-track.
