about

Recorded at LA Rehearsal Studios from late '14 into early '15, "Pretty Dope EP" is the first release from Jim From The Moon since he picked up his guitar and moved to the cool breeze and palm trees of Hollywood, California.

Their first release is the explosive, "Beauty Queens in Skinny Jeans", which sees Jim and company tearing through time with astral guitars, and drums like machine guns. "Pretty Dope" showcases a band of rock and roll destineers, molding the spectrum of rock and roll as they see fit.

This time around, Jim is flanked by the soon-to-be world famous Pat Moley on guitar, who grooves through every tune with focused abandon, and Geoff Haba who puts the world in check with peerless drumming, which births this truth…there's a new band in town, ya heard? and you better shape up…it's Jim From The Moon.

about

Jim From The Moon Los Angeles, California

At times Jim from the Moon plays acoustic tunes about girls, the devil, and similar distractions. They flow in the vein of Loudon Wainwright III and Neil Young, sung with a voice soaked in years of Irish storytelling. Other times he expels far-out electric rock that is primal and space-ward, with heavy, psychedelic sounds. Both sides are focused, catchy, and ready to be eaten by your ears... ... more

Track Name: Beauty Queens in Skinny Jeans
I’m alive
do or dive
or it’s all over for me tonight

You and me
soft and free
by the morning light we’ll see

Flashing scenes
on silver screens
of beauty queens in skinny jeans
she said…

Woe is me
Can’t you see?
I’m alone always it seems
she said…

Fair thee well
Hot as hell
The look you gave done rung my bell

Have a seat
Whiskey neat
Keep talking and sweep me off my feet

Philistine
Labyrinthine
I can be so goddamn mean
She said…

Hold me
Give me
All of your lips, openly

I’m the king of no remorse
and I feel it’s getting worse
she said…

Come again?
What’d you say?
I get lost in the way you sway

Brown bags
Skin and bones
Don’t throw stones in my glass homes
she said…

Free me
Be me
You really don’t have to tell me

and I do believe you left me
with my hands all tied in knots
then swam away
Track Name: To Live To Roam
Long ago I was born
Far away I will die
Of other certains, this is love
Stick a needle in my eye

Won’t someone come and rescue me?
Too much talk of the economy
Great forests they must sometimes burn
And raindrops sometimes fall on me

Pardon me, my love
Can you just turn upside down?
I need you more than light

I was born to live to roam
And whatever you’re ever wearing is my home
Do you think these times are crushing us?
All sharp corners veiled with foam

And you look like New York when you smile
And the truth depends, how heavy was his tongue?
My subconscious lips are taut too young
I wanna be with you for the rest of the while

Pardon me, my love
Can you just turn upside down, and face the other way?
I need you more than light
Track Name: Bat Your Lips
Bat your lips and purse your eyes
it shouldn’t come as no surprise
that I want in your gaze
to reflect in you always

Disappointing point of view
point at me, I’ll point at you
I’m aiming for your heart
the perfect place to start

Don’t you want to see it all?
our summer sex and then our fall
changing with the leaves
no longer thick as thieves

Time will tell what hell befell
such a caring ne’er do well
I just want you to know
I don’t want you to go

I was a back-talkin’, street-walkin’, latter-day fool
You were lipstick leather jacket, lookin’ saturday cool
I was just another cog in the wheel
Mr. Misfortune, boy, how does it feel?
Well, you know…
Yes, I know…

Share your chi with little ‘ol me
then we’ll awake to find
silence is our way
of watching what we say

It’s already half past two
and I don’t wanna talk to you
yeah, whatever, so?
so many years ago

I was a back-talkin’, street-walkin’, latter-day fool
You were lipstick leather jacket, lookin’ saturday cool
I was just another cog in the wheel
Mr. Misfortune, boy, how does it feel?
Well, you know…
Yes, I know…
Track Name: Sarcastic Mr. Know-Nothing
So now I let you know
that time is on our side
and there’s no space or place to hide

Sarcastic Mr. Know-Nothing
exposed as such
I know you’re leaving me alone
and it’s okay

So now I let you know
that I am on your trail
so very close to no avail

I do believe, I do believe
that we were meant to be
at least for now
until you’re meant to leave

Sod you all, sod you all, sod you all
Can you dig it?
Something sexual
My so divine, peace of mind, Caroline
Can you dig?

So now she limps to me
and let’s me in her heart
of which I’ve been so far apart

Sarcastic Mr. Know-Nothing
exposed too much
if you give me love…don’t give me love
come on, girl
don’t lie to me

My so divine, peace of mind, Caroline
Can you dig it?
Something sexual
My so divine, piece of mine, Caroline
Can you dig?
