1 - JACK, CHRIS
- MILES TO GO - (LP)
Born in Kirkcaldy Fife (Scotland), Chris Jack has lived on the island of Kyushu, Japan for almost half of his life. Whilst inJapan, he released several albums with his garage band The Routes, ranging from rhythm and blues to garage punk,from surf to psych."Miles to Go" started life as a no-frills acoustic 4 track demo, consisting of 3 home recorded songs. The songs werewritten and recorded spontaneously, without overthinking. The idea behind the recording was to create an audiodocument of a particular moment in time, rather like an entry in a diary. The songs were recorded purely for personalpleasure, taking influence from bands such as Felt, The Pastels, Galaxie 500, Guided By Voices, The VelvetUnderground, and The Lemon Drops, amongst many others. Upon the interest of Action Weekend Records, the audiodocument idea was extended to 10 songs over the space of 10 nights. Drums, percussion and glockenspiel wereprovided by Bryan Styles (a bandmate of Jacks from 25 years earlier)."Miles to Go" sees Chris Jack moving beyond the snotty, cynical vocals and lyrics, the fuzz guitars and rough-edgedproduction aesthetic of garage rock, and emerging into something as bare, vulnerable and intimate as a solo albumshould be.
