Jasmine Love Bomb

Jasmine Love Bomb Biography

Jasmine Love Bomb formed in the late 80's in Jack Kerouac's birthplace -- Lowell, Massachusetts. Former Prefab Messiahs bassist Kris Thompson got together with ex-Californian guitarist Ed Caspers to hash out a post-punk take on psychedelia. When drummer Joel Harrison (real last name: Simches) joined on, the monster psych formula was complete. During the first rehearsal with all three members, they launched into a rocket-fueled version of Pink Floyd's "Astonomy Domine" after realizing that they all knew how to play it.

The four-song tape they put out in 1989 won much praise, including "Tape Of The Year" in The Bob magazine. They appeared on two UK compilations, 'Psychedelic Psauna' and 'Fun With Mushrooms', both on Freakbeat Records. Their final release was 1991's "An Announcement", a 3-song 7" EP with a fab cardstock sleeve by Independent Project Press.

Following the breakup of the band, Harrison and Thompson moved to Boston (and were subsequently in Nisi Period together), and Caspers pursued a new muse that had led him into painting.
