To celebrate the release of the Doug Jerebine is Jesse Harper album release on LP and digital through US label Drag City, and on CD by new local label Imperial, Doug Jerebine will perform with the World Band.

It’s been a 43-year wait to get released but with rave reviews in Mojo, Uncut, Record Collector, and our own NZ Herald - this release has had psyche-heads the world over buzzing over the official release of this important document of New Zealand music history.

Doug’s tale is long - but briefly...

Rock 'n' roll is awash with long, strange trips but few are longer and stranger than that of NZ psych-rock legend Doug Jerebine.

A revered session musician on the nascent NZ music scene of the late 50s/early 60s, Jerebine's influence cannot be overstated. His compositions became the cornerstone of The Human Instinct's seminal 'Stoned Guitar' album, and his blistering guitar work earned comparisons with Jimi Hendrix.

Jerebine relocated to London in the late sixties and recorded an album under the moniker Jesse Harper. However, despite strong interest from Atlantic the album languished unreleased. He toured with the Jeff Beck group and Junior Walker, but the music scene became increasingly an anathema to Doug's spiritual nature.

In 1973 he moved to India to live as a Krishna monk, and there he remained for some 30 years.

Upon his return to NZ in 2009, Jerebine was stunned to learn that his name was still being spoken of in revered tones by psych-rock aficionados. Highly-respected US label Drag City (home of Will Oldham and Joanna Newsom) have released the album 'Doug Jerebine is Jesse Harper' to much acclaim. Mojo magazine called it 'a real pinnacle of the heavy psych movement', and the Herald's Scott Kara wrote of its 'masterful mix of natural ability, conviction, and most importantly, unbridled soul'.
