Got another good one out of the Paisley Shirt stable today, this time from RSTB fave Tony Jay. Following up the soft creep of his tape, A Wave In The Dark Mike Ramos assumes the TJ monicker once again and its just as full of bleary jangles blanketed in the loving arms of tape his as his last. As Tony Jay is more of a state of mind than a band, the video embodies’ Ramos’ alter-ego immersion into the character well — in high contrast black and white with Tony strumming like its the only thing that matters. Tony Jay is a study in contradictions, a corpse painted Joey Ramone with a hole in his heart and an aversion to volume. “The Fence Disappears” is wistful and tender, a lovely extension of what he brought forth on the last tape. Check out the video above shot, directed + edited by Kati Mashikian of April Magazine.
