BioJERKAGRAM consists of a duo of brothers from Connecticut. After about two years of touring and idea-concocting, they have released their debut record, "We've Only Come to Leave," which can be picked up digitally on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and Bandcamp, or physically through the band members themselves. As of yet unsigned, the band is known for energetic and immersive live shows, and their wide variety of influences shows in their sound, which can be meditative, ambient, and lush one moment, and frenetic, free, and heavy the next. Instrumental with tinges of improvisation, Jerkagram is certainly a fairly unique experience and commits to an honest sound and a love of energetic creation.
MembersBrent, drums Derek, guitar, electronics

We're a band of many influences from Connecticut. We do a lot of loosely improvised heavy psych stuff with krautrock, post-rock, free jazz, and noise bursts for good measure. We're looking to play as many local and house shows as possible and collaborate with as many musicians as we can. For any inquiries, including booking, feel free to send us a message through the site, or email email@example.com for more personal adventures. We're also totally into housing and feeding other touring bands who come through the Connecticut area. We're working on material for a record, and we'll have more live videos up on the site soon.
How random people have been describing us:
"Two-piece Jerkagram cascades drums through unlikely patterns—a cymbal roll where it doesn't belong, a big rock fill where you'd expect nothing—beneath one guitar that favors long tones alternately reflecting Comets on Fire's acid-drenched maximalism and Glenn Branca's stately minimalism." -- IndyWeek.com
"Jerkagram is a noisy and reactionary improv/psych-rock outfit from Connecticut that bashes out aggressive and ramshackle art-rock clusters of rhythm and dirge." -- EyeDrum
"Last up to destroy the mind was the diabolical duo, Jerkagram. Like Talibam! and Weasel they had a drummer who literally attacks the drums and does not hold back. They ripped it up with a sizzling instrumental, improvised set with guitar injections creating a jazz-rock blow out!" -- WaylonHatchet.com
