The Brian Jonestown Massacre is a rock and roll based in Los Angeles, California. The name Brian Jonestown Massacre may seem hokey, but it accurately sums up this band's aesthetic. Their key musical reference point is late Rolling Stones member Brian Jones, and their ramshackle self-destructive vibe is all too reminiscent of Jim Jones, of Jonestown Massacre fame.

Blending the smarmy drug-addled sonics of late-sixties Stones with the chime of The Byrds, the hooks of The Animals, and the monochromatic drone of The Velvet Underground within their swirl of twelve-string guitars, farfisa organs, and jaded vocals, Brian Jonestown Massacre cull some of the most head-spinning moments of sixties rock into a single, unified expression.
