SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENIC RECORDS presents a new retrospective album from J. M. SMIG. NIEN: A SCHIZOSPECTIVE, 2009-2018 The miserable prick is still at it. The self-proclaimed composer of "lounge music from the Vatican gay bar" for his fellow "sophisticated schizophrenics, murderous nerds and other assorted deviants" doesn't know when to give it up and go home. Actually, he does but he just doesn't give a fuck. He's in this for the right reasons. Read more on Last.fm
SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENIC RECORDS presents a new retrospective album from J. M. SMIG. NIEN: A SCHIZOSPECTIVE, 2009-2018 The miserable prick is still at it. The self-proclaimed composer of "lounge music from the Vatican gay bar" for his fellow "sophisticated schizophrenics, murderous nerds and other assorted deviants" doesn't know when to give it up and go home. Actually, he does but he just doesn't give a fuck.

He's in this for the right reasons. Ascending a childhood of toughing it out in the government projects of the Witch City, overcoming addictions to alcohol and raw cookie dough, and even managing to work in a government science facility without a college degree, wearing a white coat instead of the janitor's Dickies (for eight fuckin' years!), all the while crafting sonic soliloquies that Electronic Musician would praise in its weekly newsletter as "contemporary music for the bizarre at heart". J. M.

Smig has constantly confounded the upper crustaceans of his community, including the Berklee elves of the music world. April 11, 2018 marked the ninth anniversary of the release of his first album, the electroclassical MUSIC FOR SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENICS, and he's celebrating with an expanded anniversary reissue that includes both remastered and reimagined versions of the entire album. While all you Wesley Willises of the avant-garde world drool in anticipation, you can enjoy the "schizospective" entitled NIEN, a handpicked, 99-minute collection of 22 tracks from his back catalog. Listen or don't. He don't care.

He's not into reverse psychology. No lie. Really. NIEN includes classic singalongs such as “Pickle Park Polka” and “Kentucky Valentine” as well as selected tracks from the aforementioned reissue of MUSIC FOR SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENICS WHAT THE CRITICS THINK OF J. M.

SMIG: "Unapologetically strange and jarring...a captivating and enigmatic soundscape of obscure lounge music that will set your five senses alight." (Brandon Minia, 24OurMusic) "...(A) restless compositional philosophy that will not resonate with listeners expecting concise, neatly packaged musical content." (Evan Crandell, 24OurMusic) "...(C)ontemporary music for the bizarre at heart. Featuring both conventional and atypical instrumentation and composition techniques, (his) electronica and classical works operate in a style unlike any other." (Electronic Musician newsletter, May 2009) MUSIC FOR SOPHISTICATED SCHIZOPHRENICS (REVISITED) NIEN: A SCHIZOSPECTIVE, 2009-2018 AVAILABLE NOW AT AMAZON, BANDCAMP, ITUNES, SPOTIFY, ETC. ©2018 Sophisticated Schizophrenic Records.
