When cephalochromology is your line of business, you learn to be effective in scrolling the keyword-riddled internet speedways, finding and arresting disciples of Discordance Axis in order to plant them before the Infallible Court of Cephalochromoscope where they might be prosecuted for unworthiness and beaten by blasts forever on the steamy cyber-platforms, but what'll probably happen is a stream of praise for worshiping the right gods of grind, thereby achieving blastbeatitude; grind is heavy on the soul, and Jesus Egg is heavy on the Egg side of Jesus, 'cause theology doesn't know shit about the beginning, i.e. what came first - an egg, or a Jesus - whereas the answer is as obvious as Coltrane's sax skills: Discordance Axis came first, and Jesus Egg knows this.
After being but informed of its existence (thanks to Camille of Dreams of the Drowned, Smohalla & Stagnant Waters), I got this gem, blood diamond, or whatever it may be called, from the blastbeat-happy Nico (again, of Hypoptalasias), who acquired its ghastly form without even proper songtitles from the band itself. And it's a goddamn obscure band, it is. Asking the omniscient Google what the hell a Jesus Egg is will leave you wading through entries of The Flaming Lips' "Jesus Egg That Wept", searching for band info that doesn't fucking exist. This one's shrouded in dadaist mystery, true to a page on YTMND with Rosie O'Donnell having the best seizure of her life courtesy of "Bloodwork", the last track on version 1.0. For a long time, I thought that the band was French 'cause only Frenchmen seemed to even know about it, however(!), I found out that Ryan "Spicolli" Weseling, who played bass in Population Reduction, Raw Sewage, Kilgore Trout, and a shitload of other bands, actually was or is in the unfathomable phantasmagoria that is the fantastic, albeit presumably dead (/forever unhatched), Jesus Egg. If I'm even on the right track, that is.
EDIT: Seeing as an anonymous dude found the mention of Weseling offensive enough to rant about it in the comment section, I'll mention here that Weseling apparently didn't have much to do with the creative process of Jesus Egg. Check out this post for more actual band info, courtesy of Thethirdchildren's googling skills!
But fellow DxAx fanboys, you sure as hell shouldn't be giving a damn about all o' this right now 'cause this Egg is positively full of an unequivocal Rob Marton-impregnated beauty (is it safe to say that he is, in fact, the cock who conditioned the Egg's presence among us, even now?).
Bloody download this. (Mediafire)
I even wrote you a faux cover up there for the whole thing. Think it ought to land me some jobs in grind-cover-design?
