I am, of course, referring to my previous post, the larkable April 1st post on Mary Jane Kelly. If you hadn’t figured out by now that it was in jest, then you either didn’t listen to it or didn’t read the comments. But of course, like the best hoaxes, it wasn’t too far from the truth. The crime scene photos are of Mary Jane Kelly, and the murder is true; though it was performed 40 years previously, in London, by the notorious Jack the Ripper. The other photos are another Mary Kelly. John Fahey did in fact find Ishman Bracey, but that meeting led to the rediscovery of Skip James, not Randal Gatz. The Randal Gatz is in fact a band, and this album is named Mary Jane Kelly. It was googling Mary Jane Kelly that I came across all the JtRipper stuff and saw the possibility for prankdom. The real cover for the album is that image at the bottom of the post.
If you like the music, check out their myspace page. They offer their demo albums for free download, so I don’t think they mind me posting here.
