Jesus of Cool is the solo debut album by British singer-songwriter Nick Lowe.
Jesus Of Cool (LP, Album, TP). WEA Filipacchi Music. This release brought in me such joyful feeling as indeed Nick Lowe is such a graciously cool musician and facetious songwriter understanding that rock shouldn't become tedious, pop must have wit and new-wave sounds better pristine and sharp. In the 90's Nick Lowe admitted that his greatest fear was "sticking with what you did when you were famous" so maybe it's worth even looking further than his amazing early releases.
Jesus of Cool is still heralded as a new wave and pub rock masterpiece, featuring some of Lowe’s biggest hits like So It Goes and I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass, both of which remain staples of Nick’s live show. The tracklisting includes all eleven tracks found on the . version of Jesus of Cool, titled Pure Pop for Now People. This cassette features the combined . tracklisting, features a lime green cassette shell, and includes a digital download. 2008 marked the 30th anniversary of Nick Lowe's seminal 1978 album Jesus of Cool. The album, released in the . as Pure Pop for Now People, marks the beginning of one of the most storied and influential solo careers in pop music and marks the true emergence of a songwriting monolith. The album is a literal compendium of 25 years of pop music history.
On the cover of his solo debut album Jesus of Cool, Nick Lowe is pictured in six rock & roll get-ups - hippie, folkie, greasy rock & roller, new wave hipster - giving the not-so-subtle implication that this guy can do anything. Nick proves that assumption correct on Jesus of Cool, a record so good it was named twice, as Lowe's American record label got the jitters with Jesus and renamed it Pure Pop for Now People, shuffling the track listing (but not swapping songs) in the process.
In Jesus of Cool's iconic cover image, Nick Lowe appears decked out in a smorgasbord of over-the-top rockstar getups. These images are perfectly considered, down to the facial hair stylings and thematically appropriate guitars- but Lowe comes off goofy and unconvincing in every guise. The cover images are apt not for their evocation of "cool," but rather for their combination of impeccable artifice and raw, gawkish charm. Indeed, Jesus of Cool sounds more like the work of a crafty fan than that of a self-serious auteur
