TRAUMA THEMES IDIOT TIMES IS THE 4TH ALBUM RELEASE BY JINX LENNON

Jinx Lennon is not just uniquely Irish, he is quite simply unique, which coupled with his immense talent, forthrightness and messianic mission makes him a splendid splash of color in a music world frequently populated by people whose entire personas exude gray THE EXAMINER,USA

Worried about bumming out fans you’d think were used to his moods by 2009, Lennon has old helpmeet Paula Flynn echo him sweetly on most of these songs and leaves room for a horn section a lot mellower than he is. But he also makes sure his punky-rootsy band drives the trauma themes on, and although they get winded after an opening sprint, his arsenal of vocables doesn’t quit. On the merry “Folk Music for the Midlands,” the energy sustains even when Lennon and Flynn are bidding each other a resigned and lyrical farewell. “I must keep it awkward and real,” Lennon insists on the long track of more or less that title that precedes an even longer finale. And that goes as well when he’s advising you to stick a knife in a burglar’s eye. ROBERT CHRISTGAU



there’s no doubting that the performer is one of the most unique and daring artists to emerge from Ireland in quite some time. If you fancy a walk on the weird side, then pick it up HOT PRESS MAGAZINE


Nobody can listen to
Jinx Lennon and not be affected. Instantly he
becomes your best friend, your blood-brother,
your cooler cousin; giving priceless advice in
this fucked up world CONNECTED MAGAZINE
