About this item

Iceland's Jakobinarina, who are aged between 16 and 19, are Gunnar on vocals, Heimir and Hallberg on guitar, Bjorgvin on bass, Agust on keyboards and Sigurdur on drums. "Jesus" / "Filipino Girl" is their second single and concerns itself with the twin pillars of male adolescent enquiry; why is everyone else's music so shit and how long will I be crossed legged with sexual frustration? "Filipino Girl" on the flip is a glorious slice of old fashioned rock and roll, an unrestrained and unabashed paean to libidinous desire, it is proof positive of the band's craft and versatility. Blistering Chuck Berry guitars join warm Rhodes piano chords for a juke-joints party replete with false endings.
