Take Us Now

25 Apr

SACCHARINE TRUST‘s Jack Brewer has started a curious new YouTube channel that those interested in his very personal, unflagging search for artistic truth would do well to check out. But it’s this archival clip that has me floored today: SACCHARINE TRUST at their last show before their initial spilt in 1986, after which Joe Baiza quickly formed LATINO BABY JESUS and Jack delved further into free-flowing spoken arts. Through a haze of muddy sound and the accumulated cultural baggage of two dozen long years, the awesome musicality, far reaching poetics, and deeply felt spirit of the greatest SoCal rock band of the 80’s (you heard that right) is still clearly recognisable. In Saccharine we do indeed Trust.

    Rockin ethereal! I put on the crazy In Your Skin one at a busy HK cafe then had to quickly turn it off when the fat white dude in the g-string started writhing around on the floor. Whoah! Not safe for not at work.

    Haha yes but that imagery is hippie, not sexy. I know, I know: just try and explain that to an irrate Chinese internet cafe owner.

    Right you are, sir. Sac Trust is and was the s**t. Sorry that I just missed their recent ‘Pagan Icons’ performance in Pedro by a few minutes. Jack steps up to the plate and swings away, letting the devil take the hindmost. Can’t make art without breaking something or other.
