    Kentucky Valentine - Disco Version
The miserable prick is still at it. The composer of lounge music from the Vatican gay bar for sophisticated schizophrenics, murderous nerds and other deviants doesn't know when to give it up and go home.
Actually, he does but he doesn't give a fuck. Ascending a childhood of toughing it out in the projects of Witch City, crafting sonic soliloquies that eMusician would call "contemporary music for the bizarre at heart". JMS has confounded the Berklee elves of the music world and other upper crustaceans.
To mark the 9th anniversary of his debut, MUSIC FOR SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENICS, he's reissuing it with remastered and reimagined versions of the original album. While you Wesley Willises of the avant-garde world drool in anticipation, enjoy NIEN, a 99-minute "schizospective" of 22 tracks with classic singalongs such as “Pickle Park Polka”, “Kentucky Valentine” and selections from the MFSS reissue. Listen or don't. He don't care. He's not into reverse psychology. No lie. Really.
"Unapologetically strange and jarring...a captivating and enigmatic soundscape of obscure lounge music that will set your five senses alight." (Brandon Minia, 24OurMusic)
"...[A] restless compositional philosophy that will not resonate with listeners expecting concise, neatly packaged musical content." (Evan Crandell, 24OurMusic)
"...[C]ontemporary music for the bizarre at heart...[H]is electronica and classical works operate in a style unlike any other." (eMusician newsletter)
