Th’ Faith Healers – Don’t Jones Me – And Then Some

Released roughly the same time as Lido. Don’t Jones Me is more darkly repetitive and less grebo lurch/sugar sweet than the album. It does not sound like a Loop or Spacemen 3, there is still a grebo crusty undercurrent. Th’ Faith Healers used a droney mesmerising sound in the EP particularly in Gorgeous Blue Flower. This song marked a high point in their career.

Pop Trivia fact – Roxanne Stephen from Th’ Faith Healers guested on Moose’s XYZ album in 1992.
Pop Trivia fact #2 – Th’ in the band’s name used to be The’, but the band joked that the missing e’ had been stolen by Thee Hypnotics. Allegedly.
