"Once Jesus Makes The Shotgun Sound’s louder—as in really, really, deafeningly loud—songs start, I feel less ashamed of my near-tears. I almost can’t resist the urge to start writhing a bit myself; it’s obvious that my emotions aren’t being manipulated by any run-of-the-mill dudes in their 20s." – Anthem Magazine

“DO NOT THE CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN!?”
JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND
DAMNANT QUOD NON INTELLIGUNT
Release Date: April 27th, 2010
MP3: “DO NOT THE CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN!?”
Hailing from the heart of Southern California’s desert wasteland, JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND brings their apocalyptic message to mass attention by any means necessary. Influenced by the likes of radio host Art Bell, Robert Anton Wilson, Teddy and Terry Riley (no relation), JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND merges noisy synths, discordant guitars, and percussive machinery with the precision and transcendence of dark ritual.
JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND formed in 2004 with multi-instrumentalist Ramiro Zapata and drum machine Adrian Laguna. After six years, over 500 shows, and a revolving cast of their friends and cultist-like followers, maximalist Lvis Pe Rez and sound conjurer Sergio Camarena balanced the scales. Collectively, JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND taps into the kind of desperation born of Southern California: vapid consumerism, gang violence and social apathy. The sweeping vision of these young men is to create music that challenges the expectation of the listener, leaving one with the sort of uneasiness usually reserved for personal epiphany or witness to a violent crime.
JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND’s debut EP DAMNANT QUOD NON INTELLIGUNT carries a distinct aesthetic rooted in the ethos and imagery of the film “Koyaanisqatsi,” which translates into “Life Out of Balance.” The clash of humanity versus nature, the organic vs. synthetic, order into chaos, such is the music of JESUS MAKES THE SHOTGUN SOUND.
