Everybody loves to trumpet their favorite breaking artists, but this time I've put my music
where my mouth is, so to speak. Catch my latest
pick for I Freakin Love This Song on
uber music blog Spinner.com:
>>Just Jack live at Hiro Ballroom, NY, 7/31/07
Just Jack: Writer's Block
it 'Spiderman''s MJ or 'Harold and Kumar''s Mary Jane you're flying
high with, Jack?
With insider references to bullet trains and Lois
Lane, 'Writer's Block' is enough to make
a stoner ComiCon buff's day.
Sorry, Spidey, but in this debut issue from North Londoner
the bass line is the real superhero. Funkier than Superman's trunks
after a busy
day saving the planet, the bass is the driving force
behind the tune, and a surprising
counterpoint to Jack's Cockney
patter. With such a disco-driven core and his call-outs to
culture, it's easy to overlook the fact that his ruminations on
impending fame and
the music biz are the real thrust of the song. Read the rest & listen to the tune!
