|I first heard Jane From Occupied Europe one wintry night in early 1990, when Radio One's John Peel played a song called 'Ocean Run Dry'. Deadpan vocals droned over a fuzz of tinny guitars, in a quite splendid fashion. I scribbled down the details and bought it soon afterwards. An even better second single followed, featuring the stand-out track 'Parade'. Then came a quite wonderful album of psychedelic drone rock, reminiscent of some of Spacemen 3's more blissful moments. That seemed to be the end of the story.|
|Since creating this page, former bassist Dave Todd has been in touch. He confirmed that two singles and one album were pretty much all that JFOE released, apart from a couple of demo tracks that were issued on compilation albums. His history of the band will appear here... sometime.|
|JFOE also have a page on the Tweenet site.|
