In addition to The Gun Club's "Mother Juno", Jeffrey Lee Pierce's first solo album, "Wildweed", has finally been digitally remastered and re-released. Recorded in London in 1985, this is Pierce's most poppy and new wavy record. Craig Leon, whose production credits by this point included such classics as the first albums of both The Ramones and Suicide, does some pretty slick work. While Pierce handles all of his guitars for the first time, his studio band includes drummer Andy Anderson who just departed from The Cure and John MacKinzie. Added bonus tracks - the experimental poems and songs from the seven-inch that accompanied the original LP. The eerie cover, picturing Pierce in black and white, staring into the distance with a shotgun slung over his shoulder, gives as much of an indication of the thematic material inside as much as the session musicians do the musical material. While Pierce continues to sing about some of his favorite themes - murder, sex, pain, failure, debauchery, drugs, and prostitution, the murder part of the equation is accentuated. Although typically erratic and idiosyncratic, it's his best and most fully formed work since "Fire of Love". It's crisply played by a good little band, and Pierce helps himself surprisingly well on lead guitar.
