Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Jim White (vocals, guitar, banjo, keyboards, percussion); Ralph Carney (vocals, saxophone, clarinet, slide clarinet, trombone, musical saw); David Pilch (vocals, acoustic & electric basses); Danny Frankel (vocals, drums, percussion); Victoria Williams (vocals); Bill Elm (guitar, pedal steel); Paul Rabjohns (guitar, keyboards, percussion); Joe Henry (guitar, background vocals); Martin Tillman (cello); Eddie Baytos (accordion).
  • Jim White's debut album is a cinematic collection of Appalachia-inspired country-folk rendered with a gothic sensibility and junkyard atmospherics (the inclusion of Tom Waits collaborator Ralph Carney on several tracks lends the record a distinctly Waits-ish veneer). Drawing on his bizarre life experiences and troubled Pentecostal upbringing, White's narratives are surreal and crazed, shot through with disturbing spiritual imagery and backwoods dementia; a strangely beautiful record, Wrong-Eyed Jesus! is a fine introduction to a uniquely twisted talent. ~ Jason Ankeny

Professional Reviews
Q (7/00, p.137) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...While still slightly unfocussed, the central thrust and uncompromising mix of quirky sounds still appeal but will ensure that it remains a firm but obscure favorite."

Option (7-8/97, p.139) - ", moody music with half-whispered vocals and jazzy guitar and organ effects....his music needs a lot more humor, energy and straight-forward songs to transform his twisted personal vision into something more universal."

Melody Maker (7/5/97, p.50) - "...We're talkin' backwoods, God-strewn post country....WRONG-EYED JESUS is...a thing of intimate beauty, wrapped in translucent layers of pedal steel, slide guitar, and hi-fi versions of low-fi sounds."
