      EVENT DETAILS
      Jerry Joseph and The Jackmormons ACOUSTIC show

      In 2014, Jerry Joseph traveled to Kabul, Afghanistan to teach music in an underground, co-ed, rock school. On the streets and in the markets of the capital city, the iconic blue burqa and its diamond-shaped mesh veil, synonymous with Taliban-era Afghanistan, is still a commonplace sight. It had a lasting impression on Joseph, and inspired the title and artwork of his forthcoming new album, Full Metal Burqa. Joseph describes, Full Metal Burqa as a record of outtakes, but not in the usual use of the word. I hate that it conjures up less than and these are not that. With the exception of Peace Lights, these were recorded at TRI Studios with the Jackmormons and friends with Dave Schools producing. We loved them, they just didnt fucking fit. We are very pleased they are coming out now. The album was inspired by experiences of traveling the world, with songs written and inspired by different countries and cultures. Two were written in Kabul. When I was in Afghanistan, writing many of the songs that ended up on By the Time Your Rocket Gets to Mars, I was trying to stay away from war songs as God knows thats the last thing anyone in that city needs. The one war song that made it in the record, Brother Number 1, was about war zones Id recently been in, other than Afghanistan. A couple of these songs were left off the record because of the subject matter or because Jackmormons songs tend to run a million minutes long.
