Railroad Jerk

The band Railroad Jerk got together around the turn of the 90’s. They put out a couple records on Matador that got some attention, but their third release, 1995’s One Track Mind, is the one that got mine. Loved their brand of lo-fi, shit-can, delta blues-rock. Their follow up Third Rail tightened up their sound and was their best effort yet…unfortunately it was to be their last, although I have read rumors about an unreleased album.

Hi! It's great to see some love for Railroad Jerk. Take a look at www.marcellushall.com to see some of the RJ singer's visual art and to hear his more recent band, White Hassle!
