Who is Smegma?

On the most basic level, Smegma is an experimental rock band that encompasses rock, jazz, surf, soul and inspiration from artists like Sun Ra, Buckminster Fuller and John Cage  to create a sound that is uniquely their own. On a larger scale, Smegma is a collective of over 100 musicians, both past and present, that is led by Ju Suk Reet Meate and Rock and Roll Jackie, currently based in Portland, Oregon. Smegma is rooted in the Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). It is impossible and unnecessary to define Smegma through conventional terms.



What does Smegma sound like even?

What does Smegma say about themselves?

“You know that moment when a record player plays the same bit at the end of the record over and over, that annoying moment?” asks Jackie, who has been in Smegma since the late ‘70s. “I do it on purpose” – Rock and Roll Jackie

Oblivia (2)

“To combine the future and the past, without the present. Because music and performance is all about fantasy and casting a spell, so right from the beginning we had this thing of the future – creating the avant-garde, or homages to the past where you’re trying to do something that’s kind of… respectful.” — Ju Suk Reet Meate
