There are at least 6 bands/artists named Jack: 1) Jack is a grindcore / crust band from Hungary. http://jackgrindpunk.bandcamp.com/ 2) A Welsh/Anglo band formed by Anthony Reynolds. Jack were formed in Cardiff, Wales in 1992, based around the songwriting partnership of Anthony Reynolds and guitarist Matthew Scott, both of whom had relocated to London by the end of 1993. By the end of 1995, Jack was a six piece, signed to Too Pure/Beggars Banquet records in the UK.
In addition, both Matthew and Anthony were now signed to Warner/Chappell music publishing as songwriters and in early 1996 they signed with Cerne Canning's Sermon management. (Canning now manages Franz Ferdinand). Due to illness, original Violinist Audrey Morse left the band before the album's release, to be replaced by Lucy Wilkins the following summer. Jack's debut album, Pioneer Soundtracks, produced by respected producer Peter Walsh, was released to worldwide critical acclaim in the summer of 1996.
Despite excellent press and considerable successful touring both in Europe and the UK, the four initial singles released from the album, 'Kid Stardust' (a tribute to Charles Bukowski), 'Wintercomessummer', White jazz', and 'Biography of a first son', failed to pick up any serious airplay and as a result sales were modest. http://www.myspace.com/jackpioneersoundtracksreissue In early 1997 Anthony formed a side project under the name of 'Jacques'. Produced by Momus, the album How to Make Love, Vol.1 was released on Setanta records as a limited edition that March. The album, recorded and mixed in seven days, was a much more Lo-fi venture than Jack, and was subsequently greeted with mixed and extreme reviews.Make Jack Playlist
