…watch your step, SINGLE: JIFFY MARX – She’s My Witch
by Walter Price
With one foot in the 50s, another in New York Dolls’ heyday, and a third in timeless bubble gum pop, the recent single, “She’s My Witch”, from prolific song crafter Jiffy Marx is a catchy romp. With its classic R&B bass intro to the Rolling Stones-esque pop sensibilities, this fresh track brings some summertime vibes to the forthcoming drab of winter.
Marx, which you may know from Autogramm/Hard Drugs/Blood Meridian, is a fan of taking all the best sonic bits and bobs from genres of the past and blending them into his own insanely indelible craftiness. And this one is certainly no exception. And you can get into “She’s My Witch” and its flipside, “Warning Sign”, now at the GTC.

“On hiatus from touring and while chipping away at Autogramm’s sophomore album, Marx took a weekend to visit his pals from Seattle’s Bread & Butter. Over the course of 36 hours, they managed to drink a shit load of beer, eat a ton of peanut butter pretzels, and track Jiffy’s first solo 45rpm single. Coming November 20th on Denver’s Snappy Little Numbers Quality Audio Recordings, “She’s My Witch” b/w “Warning Sign” sounds like classic 70s more punk than Big Star and more pop than Buzzcocks.” – bio
