About this product

New 2nd EDITION now available!

Behold: a new cult figure! Unheard in his day (and for most of ours...), J.T. IV was the alias of John Timmis the IV, a Chicago resident, ex-institution dweller, and myth-maker extraordinaire. Here we've collected his recorded output (a few 7"'s, plus some recently discovered recordings) to create an all-encompassing look at an extremely obscure artist who mixed ferocious glam-punk with heart-melting honesty. Very limited edition includes a DVD featuring footage from J.T.'s films and home movies.
