This week we will be playing Peoples Temple, the title track from the new album from All Signs Of Those Who Left, a project by Daniel James Dolby. Here’s the lowdown on the album.
Pigpen says this is beautifully terrifying….
‘Peoples Temple’ was written as a dedication to those who were victims of mass murder at Jonestown, Guyana on November 18th, 1978. I discovered the FBI tapes of the final minutes of this tragedy online in early 2016 and it had such a profound effect on me that I was compelled to compose around this recording to ensure that people are aware of the atrocities that occurred and how one man can manipulate innocent individuals to take their lives and the lives of their children. Jim Jones murdered over 900 victims on that fateful day. May humanity eventually learn from it’s mistakes. This is a tough listen due to the subject matter and believe me it wasn’t easy to record but the pure evilness of Rev. Jim Jones in the last moments of the existence of the Peoples Temple, needs to be heard. Thank you.
‘Peoples Temples’ was released on Monday 9th January, and is now free to download on Bandcamp.
