Biography

Portland, United States (1994 – present)

Jackie-O Motherfucker (or JOMF) is an American experimental rock group that formed in Portland, Oregon in 1994.

Jackie-O Motherfucker began as a duo consisting of multi-instrumentalist Tom Greenwood and saxophonist Nester Bucket. The group now has more than twenty rotating members drawn from the U.S. experimental scene, including members of Evolutionary Jass Band,Gang Gang Dance, Set Fire to Flames, Heavy Winged, and Portland artists Nudge, Eternal Tapestry, Inca Ore, Dragging an Ox Through Water, Valet, and White Rainbow As of 2006, the core of the group is founding member Greenwood.

JOMF’s music draws from a variety of subgenres including drone, free jazz, space-rock and is heavily improvisational in its nature. Because they are a collective, rather than a consistent band or group, the sound of their music can change from performance to performance. The group operates its own label of CD-R live recordings, the U-Sound Archive, which features concert recordings from JOMF as well as like-minded subterranean artists such as Double Leopards, Sunroof!, Decaer Pinga and Vibracathedral Orchestra.

The group’s first three albums were limited-run vinyl-only releases on now-defunct Portland label Imp Records. Since then, the group has had recordings released by many different labels from around the world.

    yeah i'm going to need more information about what exactly you didn't like about FOTSH besides "wasn't very impressed" and "it turned out to be shit" to give that recommendation >.> peeping your library, jomf may just not fit your taste. stick with something more like sigur ros, diiv, real estate, eits, king krule, eco virtual, and weezer?

    all wrong, me right, flags & fig.5 sound so distinctively abnormal as post-rock should have had to be.

    Listened to "Flags of the Sacred Harp" but wasn't very impressed. Is there anything in this group's discography that sounds nothing like that album? Thanks in advance.

    Reminds me a bit of all the things that were great about Amon Düül II

    Jackie-O Motherfucker sounds like something Chris Rock would say in Rush Hour

    Here in Australia we have a ridiculously fucking pathetic idiot media personality called Jackie O, which prevents me from enjoying the name as much as I probably should.

    I only have The Magick Fire Music/Wow! and Ballads of the Revolution but much prefer the former. What else is good in that vein?
