Cha Cha Cha
You've heard of emo-core. Now make way for ENORMO-CORE. Fat beats. Big bottom. Jonesamatic is two chubby guys with a lot of technology. Siamese twins separated at birth (a lovechild of Beck and Bevis Frond), Jonesamatic fuses the electronica-fueled drums, loops, trumpet and keys of Peat Biby with the distinctive voice and guitar of Ian Jones. Their musical collide-a-scope layers catchy melodies, deep grooves and rump-rustling rhythms with lyrics that make you sing along and even (god forbid) think. Aw heck, you just have to hear it. Which you can, by clicking the links on the left. Jonesamatic 'cha cha cha' is a self-recorded variety pack of all original songs and soundscapes. But this ain't no lo-fi ho-down. Jonesamatic arises from the breadbasket of indie-rock, Arlington Virginia. Jones recorded such platters as Tuscadero's Pink Album (Teenbeat/Elektra) and other 90s darlings at his Evil Genius Audio Labs, while performing with Eggs, Bombardier Jones and Dana Cerick. Biby honed his drum skills in DC indie bands like Lorelei and Vanity Champ while remixing the Pietasters, the East Coast Boogiemen and Lida Husik at his Enko Studio. They met as the touring rhythm section for oddball indie-popsters Viva Satellite. Now they have united to bring you more sound per pound. Think Beck. Think They Might Be Giants. Think Jonesamatic.
