Jack Off Jill
Clear Hearts Grey Flowers
LP only - edition of 2000
OUT IN May
Although Jack Off Jill may never have topped the charts or headlined Madison Square Garden, their contribution to gothic-alt rock as well as the Grrl Band Revolution isn't any less important. Disbanding in 2000, they left their fans with their best album to date, "Clear Hearts Grey Flowers". At the time being closely linked with fellow Floridian Marilyn Manson did not necessarily help Jack Off Jill, as they were constantly being compared to Manson and his shock rock genre. The fact was Jack Off Jill had more in common with riot grrl acts such as Babes In Toyland and Hole, but because of the stigma that surrounded them, they found it difficult to gain acceptance from their female peers. After years of struggling with inner band turmoil and being lumped into date rape and nu-metal genres, Jack Off Jill begrudgingly released their second full length album, Clear Hearts Grey Flowers, produced by Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails) and featuring an album cover painted by the art demi-God Mark Ryden. Never before released on vinyl. coloured vinyl Edition of 2000. psssssssssst: Lead singer, Jessicka can now be found fronting L.A.'s beloved and brilliant Scarling with many releases available on Sympathy.

Jack Off Jill
Humid Teenage Mediocrity (1992-1995)
cd - OUT IN May
Before the world was introduced to Marilyn Manson, before the world even knew what sweet dreams were made of, there was Ft. Lauderhell, the Spooky Kids, Jack Off Jill and a club called Squeeze, which would later become a headquarters and home away from home for both bands. There Manson became the great Oz to Jessicka's Dorothy. And Ft. Lauderdale their yellow brick road of sorts… A golden trail leading them out of humid hell and onto bigger and better things. Humid Teenage Mediocrity is a collections of recordings produced during that Golden Age. The now defunct Jack Off Jill hit the South Florida scene in 1992 and was hailed by critics as a "childrens puppet show meets the Exorcist" The band lasted eight years, with only Moulder and Fodera remaining through all its lineups. The Original [all-girl] line-up consisted of Jessicka: Vocals / Lyrics , Agent [robin] Moulder :bass , Michelle In-Hell [guitar] and Tenni Ah-Cha-Cha [drums]. Jack Off Jill played with a relentless fuck-all attitude and sound that could rarely be duplicated by its predecessors. Releasing Children 5 and Up, Cannibal Songbook and Cockroach Waltz and touring with riot girl legends L7, Babes In Toyland ,7 Year Bitch as well as Goth icons Switchblade Symphony and fellow Floridian shock rockers Marilyn Manson, Jack Off Jill’s live show was one to be seen. They commanded the stage ruling it as their own private playpen complete with dolls -candy - blood - and a plethora of toys for singer Jessicka to fashion into weapons in order to injure herself or her unsuspecting band mates. Jack off Jill took the stage taunting you to play their game and play it on their turf. This 25 track collection of songs from the Florida based punk goth legends was produced by Marilyn Manson . The album includes 13 previously unreleased tracks and 9 songs that went on to be re-recorded for the classic debut “sexless demons and scars”. Manson also supplys liner notes with a Jack off Jill history and guitar parts to “Swollen”. Essential for all JOJ and Marilyn Manson fans. Contains new artwork and 3 tracks not available on UK version

Well, seems it's time to find anyone wanting to order some stuff from SFTRI...
[UPDATE:] Seems that JoJo's usually order stuff from SFTRI, so I might buy the new stuff there when they have it in catalog, instead of ordering it on FNAC and pray. I don't order nothing from JoJo's for years (they weren't CDGO then), and I hope they're better than they were... Living in Europe has this kind of stuff...
