A considerable risk with new studio offerings from groups with ’70s era bands has consistently been an incongruity between the intent of the songwriting — to capture that raw spirit and energy that fueled the early days of heavy rock — with a sometimes-too-slick, or at very least dry, modern production. This can be heard on numerous contemporary from artists at multiple echelons, from Leslie West and Cactus to Leaf Hound. An exception to the rule might be Ripple Music jammers Poobah.

Likewise, it’s something Pentagram largely avoided with their Last Rites comebacker in 2009 I think in no small part because of guitarist Victor Griffin‘s ongoing connnections to the heavy underground, and I think in Josefus, having that awareness of what the current heavy audience is looking for is the role one might find Doomstress Alexis and Morris playing (in addition to their instruments, obviously). It will be up to them to ensure the sound of the record matches not only the purpose behind the material in the first place, but the vibe that listeners will invariably crave from a band like this in the first place. Fortunately, they would seem to be readily up to the task.

To my mind, this only makes the next Josefus long-player, previewed with the stage performance at End Hip End It, all the more worth looking forward to. One assumes at this point it’ll be a 2018 arrival, but of course when I hear something, I’ll let you know.

Until then, enjoy “Guns and Fun” and “The Shade” below, as filmed by IcedRelics in Houston:

End Hip End It: Acid King, Elder, Dead Meadow, Josefus & Many More to Play

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 14th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

I’m not gonna discount the notion of seeing the likes of Josefus sharing the stage with The Well and Doomstress, or of watching the almighty Acid King roll out their riffly triumphs next to Dead Meadow, Elder, Mothership and a megaslew of others, but I think the fact that if you buy a ticket for the second day of End Hip End It you get two slices of pizza speaks volumes to the vibe the Spring, Texas-based festival is going for, and that’s a vibe with which I think just about anybody can get down.

The lineup is varied from Funeral Horse and Switchblade Jesus to King Buffalo and Stone Machine Electric, but there’s a heaping representation of the fertile Texan underground here, and that’s likewise respectable. My understanding is they’ve run into some branding issues — I guess repeating any word in your fest name in Texas is verboten because you’re making fun of SXSW? seems to me SXSW could stand to be taken down a peg or two, but couldn’t we all? — and might rename the event for 2018, but whatever you call it, it looks like a good time to me.

Lineup, other info and ticket link follow:

Josefus Announce New Lineup and Recording Plans

Posted in Whathaveyou on May 11th, 2017 by JJ Koczan


By my count, the most recent Josefus studio album was Son of Dead Man, released in 1990, but of course the Texas-based outfit are more known for their works during the heavy rock surge of 1969-1970, during the course of which they offered three records to the overarching cause of the development of heavy rock. 1969’s Get off My Case and their two 1970 releases, Dead Man and Josefus — most particularly Dead Man — have continued to find relevance and influence among subsequent generations of Texan groups, and as they look to make a return this year to play End Hip End It this October in Houston and move forward with their first long-player in nearly 30 years, they do so crossing the generational divide in their own right.

The new lineup of Josefus, in addition to founding vocalist Pete Bailey and founding guitarist Dave Mitchell, features bassist/backing vocalist Doomstress Alexis, also of Doomstress and Project Armageddon, and drummer Michael Morris of Lone Star Hippie, and they’ve begun work tracking new material already while also dealing with a host of medical issues, scheduling conflicts, and so on. No exact release date has been set, but it doesn’t seem unreasonable to think there’s a chance Josefus could have the record together by the time End Hip End It comes around, if not actually pressed and ready for the merch stand.

They posted a quick rehearsal teaser on Thee Facebooks this past weekend that I’d embed here but for the evilness of the social medias involved. Instead, I’ve included Dead Man as a refresher at the bottom of this post, along with the info the band sent down the PR wire below about their upcoming plans.

Check it out:

Josefus – New Lineup May 2017

Josefus singer Pete Bailey had been feeling like the inspirational well was dry though the want to continue creating music was still there. Two days after celebrating his 70th birthday in November 2016 he checked in to the hospital for a scheduled minor surgery. Things took a dramatic change when severe complications from a massive infection developed forcing Pete to spend three months in both the hospital for treatment and rehabilitation to avoid a massive stroke or worse. It was during this time of isolation that Pete suddenly found his inspirational well surge.

Once released from the hospital Pete & Dave started working on songs together with an intense drive and contacted Richard Cagle at Montrose Studios about doing a new record. Unfortunately existing drummer Leesa Harrington-Squires (Lez Zeppelin) & bassist Mark Weathers were unable to commit to the project. Dave called bassist Doomstress Alexis (Doomstress/Project Armageddon) and drummer Mike Morris (Lone Star Hippie) whom they were all familiar with and asked if they could dedicate time to putting a record together.

Four writing and rehearsal sessions later and they were in the studio tracking drum and bass for several songs. Dave and Pete will be laying down guitars, vocals and harmonica for the existing tracks while Alexis is on a scheduled tour with Doomstress but once she is back, tracking will continue on several more songs already developed from writing sessions.

A short video teaser from the studio session was uploaded to the Josefus Facebook page and has had a massive response, especially with fans from across Europe asking for a European tour and festival appearances! Josefus plans on doing shows and some touring later this year and is already booked to play End Hip End It psych fest with Doomstress on October 22nd in Houston, TX. Europe is definitely on the radar as well.

Pete Bailey – Vocals & Harmonica
Dave Mitchell – Guitars
Michael Morris (Lone Star Hippie) – Drums & Backing Vocals
Doomstress Alexis (Doomstress/Project Armageddon) – Bass & Backing Vocals
