About this album

Take It from the Man! is the third album by American neo-psychedelia band The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It is the first of three critically acclaimed albums released by the band in 1996, preceding Their Satanic Majesties’ Second Request and Thank God for Mental Illness. It was another change of style for the band, with a large influence being 1960s garage rock, particularly the early work of The Rolling Stones. All of the songs were written by Anton Newcombe except “Oh Lord”, “B.S.A.”, “Cabin Fever” and “In My Life”, which were written by Matt Hollywood. It was produced by Larry Thrasher of Psychic TV. “Dawn” was later re-recorded on the band’s first and only album with TVT Records, Strung Out in Heaven. “Straight Up and Down” was used as theme music for the television drama series Boardwalk Empire on the American cable network HBO. The song appears twice on the album (track 6 and 18), as two different takes.
