about

As if Harmony Korine had grown up in Roger Corman’s sordid ‘sploitation world, JC Autobody constructs a Rust Belt Mythos of blighted flyover towns and shuttered factories, boarded-up Dairy Queens and plasma centers interconnected by desolate capillarian roads where drivers in tricked out muscle like Autobody prowl like wolves.

"Young Tobacco" features 11 tracks of thick, diesel-powered guitar and aggravatedly assaulting drums flowing through similarly overdriven veins as Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, at times teetering precipitously close to GodheadSilo-esque noise, and nestled in the dark feedback haze of L.A. death rock.

about

JC Autobody Petroleum, Indiana

Channeling Deep Purple (if they grew up on punk 7”s and DIY ethics), Dirtbombs (if they grew up on a steady diet of LA death rock) and grindhouse film (if Russ Meyer had grown up in Harmony Korine’s Xenia, OH), JC Autobody combines the rawness of lo-fi punk with the nihilism of swamp blues, drenched in the gratuitous noise of the loudest amps on earth. ... more

Track Name: Got Your Number
I got your number
it’s on my phone

but you’d never be with me alone

i got a reflex
under the bone

but you won’t come smell my cheap cologne

i’m waiting

i feel a darkness
coming along

oh baby please won’t you come home

Track Name: Dancing in the Fire
always the same
got stuck with the blame
not gonna play your game
never did what you claim

you try to make me crawl
you try to make me stall
you never had no shame

dancing in the fire
dancing like a mountain man

always gives you a thrill
going in for the kill
add another scar
tell the story of what you are

tell the one where you win
tell us all again and again
you never have no shame

dancing in the fire
dancing like a mountain man

overhaul
Track Name: Devil Driver
On the walls outside the city
aerosol is painted black
purple flames upon the subway train
a graffiti heart attack

Just a picture of a mercury
like a signal in the grey
just a rally cry for One to see
Barracuda monocaine

Yeah
Devil Driver

Down an alleyway the Hunter waits
with a boot upon the gas
wind whispers like a banshee
distant rumble sewer rat

beat it on the overpasses
beat it on the freeway

Yeah
Devil Driver

beat it on the overpasses
beat it on the freeway
Track Name: The Highway Man
on the highway
the time before the dawn
is always the darkest

lightning
the world is at an end
and i see a spotlight

steady
the rain is coming down
down my neck it's cold

yeah
i'm walking in the street
because i'm abandoned

Take a long long breath
Sleep in the arms of death
Feel yourself possessed
in dreams of the Highway Man

a slender
man is walking up the path
to my way

a monster
every single mother's child
is frightened

he reaches
out his hand and i see my face
in the glow

Take a long long breath
Sleep in the arms of death
Feel yourself possessed
in dreams of the Highway Man

a mirage, lighter flame
hang a picture in a frame
from the mirror looking back
in the fog he wrote your name
he’s gone again

Out on the highway
Standing in the road
Two hours to morning
Just as he foretold
Track Name: Primitive
i got a stick in my craw
cuz that’s the way i walk
i got my spit in a can
cuz that’s the way i am

i’m primitive
ain’t got no problem
i’m just walkin
don’t want no trouble

tell by the look on your face
you’re alone and afraid
think i’m an outlaw off the chain
gonna kiss your cheek with a wooden baseball bat (no)

look through my pockets
and all you’ll see is holes
these pants are made just for walkin
so walk on in the cold

i’m primitive
ain’t got no problem
i’m just walkin
don’t want no trouble

oh yeah…
i’m out of fashion
but longer lastin
it’s all i’ve ever been
i’m primitive

i got some grease on my fingers
i don’t know where i’ve been
got some dirt under my nails
and my ears, your mama said...

i’m primitive
ain’t got no problems
i’m just walkin
don’t want no trouble

oh yeah…
i’m out of fashion
but longer lastin
it’s all i’ve ever been
i’m primitive
Track Name: War Machine
one dollar bill
stuck inside the wheels
some trucker speed
stuck in the seat
i go all night
without getting sleep
engine’s alright
run it out the back door

like a cherry bomb like genghis khan
on fire in the street ride my shotgun seat
a flaming tire smell and with a rebel yell
i do a detroit lean inside my war machine

a thousand hooves
under the hood
my nailhead is white black and red
fender painted flames
danger is my name
i have a need for speed
four on the floor yeah

like a cherry bomb like genghis khan
on fire in the street ride my shotgun seat
a flaming tire smell and with a rebel yell
i do a detroit lean inside my war machine

I’ll shut em down / around the bend / i’ll shut em down

the wicked winding road is paved with good intentions
i will follow you to everlasting redemption
the wicked winding road is paved with good intentions
i will follow you to everlasting redemption

like a cherry bomb like genghis khan
on fire in the street ride my shotgun seat
a flaming tire smell and with a rebel yell
when i find the keys to my war machine
Track Name: Nun'Yunu'Wi (Dressed in Stone)
magic evil power
looking to devour
dogs are getting louder
walking in the midnight hour

Sound the drum
Dressed in stone
Evil one
Dressed in stone

legend unknown
wicked to the bone
a cane to lead you home
forever will you roam

Sound the drum
Dressed in stone
Evil one
Dressed in stone
Flames get higher
Dressed in stone
Funeral pyre
Dressed in stone

oh yeah
run to safety
oh yeah
come on baby
Track Name: Borrowed Time (Borrowed World and Borrowed Eyes with which to Sorrow It)
woke up this morning

woke up this morning
woke up for one last time

me and the devil
we gonna go for a ride

i won’t be comin
i won’t be comin round here

i won’t be comin
i won’t be coming round here

if you ask me where i’m goin
i’m gonna disappear
Track Name: Stormbringer
smoke on the horizon
drivers on the storm
black camaro rising
el camino swarm

a bloody moon is rising
watch the sun go down
dark Orion shining
midnight ramble on

shifting down the mountain
cutting through the fog
round the curve of a dead man
runnin from the law

drive like you gamble
(reckless)

bring on the storm
Track Name: She's On Fire (As Hard As She Can)
there’s someone i’m seein tonight
she’s a girl i’ve known all my life
she’s got a mind that’s just like mine
it’s filled with trash

i’m sayin when we get together
it’s gonna be some real bad weather
the kind i like when she’s on fire
as hard as she can

she got an eight ball on her shifter
a pair of dice hangin from the mirror
some little dots under the skin of her hand

we cruise along at 95
another am radio night
she spins the dial cause she’s on fire
as hard as she can
