'Joy Through Amplification' is now available to download from Bill's Bandcamp page.

A favourite with the fans, if you don't own a copy, this is a must-have release!

*

“The album is, in some ways, a response to those who have wanted a rock album from me. I could have done a '70s style, Be Bop Deluxe sort of thing, but there’s little fun for me in that as I covered those bases all those years ago...so I thought I’d do something even more rock than Be Bop, but push it out of shape a little whilst incorporating some of the stylised machismo elements that real rock bands take so seriously, (much to my amusement!).
So there’s some chugging, deliberately dumb and dirty riffs, squalling wah-wah guitars, semi-moronic drumming and even a touch of shredding.”

Of all Bill's albums of the 21st Century, JTA is the one I play the most. The Ampex "palet cleansers" are a joy in their own right too.

An absolute essential amongst a musical ocean of essentials.

And just a note that this classic was released on this day in 2012.

If there are any fans who do not own this, please digitally-run, don't digitally-walk, to Bandcamp and purchase this from Bill; this album is an incredible work, start-to-finish.

You really shouldn't downplay "Joy Through Amplification", aquiresville. :D
