Jodienda means clusterfuck in Puerto Rican slang. This particular
Jodienda came about when the music Steve Formel made while
working on a cargo ship in the Caribbean melded with John
Melillo’s backwoods brand of noise. Singable melodies, strange
dissonances, weird forms, and oceanic noise…Jodienda reckon

electric guitars and a bass drum. Sounding somewhere between Liars and Nick Cave,
its a spooky mess.
Unfortunately, Jodienda are no more as John and Steve parted ways. John Melillo’s
new project is called Algae & Tentacles (more info below).
