This is the second and last part of the saga that is The Exploding Eyes Orchestra. What begun as a sidetrack or a therapy group from Jess and the Ancient Ones while the band were going through a turbulent, inactive period, has since then morphed back into the mothership. TEEO represented a more earthy approach to vintage psychedelic rock music, towards which JATAO then steered as well, and eventually found themselves with the exact same lineup.

The first part of these sessions was released a couple of years ago. This limited release presents the rest of the cream of the crop.

Side A:
1. Those of Us Left
2. Belladonna
3. Harmain
4. The Things You Do

Side B:
1. The Birch and the Sparrow
2. Go Go Johnny Do
3. Love Eternal

The saga of The Exploding Eyes Orchestra began with part I in 2015 and closes with the second part, due out on October 5th 2018.

What begun as a sidetrack or a therapy group from Jess and the Ancient Ones while the band were going through a turbulent, inactive period, has since then morphed back into the mothership. The Exploding Eyes Orchestra were guitarist Thomas Corpse’s vessel for his creative endeavours while the main band laid dormant. TEEO represented a more earthy approach to psychedelic rock music, towards which JATAO then steered as well, and eventually found themselves with the exact same lineup.

“I wrote all kinds of material at home and came up with the idea to ask my fellow bandmates to join me for a session. We then went to the studio and laid down 14 tracks, half of which was released on part I in 2015”, tells Thomas Corpse, “and the rest sees the light of day now as the closing chapter is coming out. The music on this album is a bit all over the place, just like we were at the time, but in a way it manages to sound like a well thought-out album.”

With the resurgence of Jess and the Ancient Ones, The Exploding Eyes Orchestra has served its purpose and will be laid to rest with this album as its epitaph.
