Chokin' on the Jokes

Chokin' on the Jokes

by Lotus Crown


2 New & Used Starting at $1.99


After the demise of Rollerskate Skinny, drummer Jimi Shields (brother of My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields) turned to a singer/songwriter/arranger with the band Lotus Crown. Much of Chokin' on the Jokes lacks the spacey experimentalism of both Rollerskate Skinny's work and that of former bandmate Ken Griffin's Kid Silver project, opting instead for a more conventional major-label Brit-rock/psychedelic feel that occasionally comes across like a darker, less pop-oriented Boo Radleys. Often enough, however, the band lightens up on its rock influences in favor of more interesting guitar sounds and arrangements, resulting in a polished, dreamy midtempo rock sound that's highly effective.
