The Three Bad Jacks are the bastard sons of rock and roll greats like Elvis Presley, Joe Strummer and Joey Ramone. This full throttle rock and roll trio fuse the best parts of rockabilly, rock and roll, and punk into a unique sound that defies any label or category.
After years of playing sold out shows all over the country, the Three Bad Jacks have finally released their highly anticipated sophomore release, “Crazy In The Head”. Having enjoyed huge success with debut “Made Of Stone”, selling over 35,000 cd’s the Three Bad Jacks haven’t let up and charge out of the gates like, well, like a hell bound train!
The 13 tracks on “Crazy In The Head” are all originals written by singer/guitarist Elvis Suissa, and he clearly positions himself to joining an elite group of songwriters who happen to have names like Strummer, Setzer, Weller, Stipe, Ness, etc.
The biggest strength to “Crazy In The Head” is the diversity from song to song. Along with the various influences that are present, every song manages to be different and yet still maintains a sonic consistency that clearly states “This Is A Three Bad Jacks Song”. A striking notion that hits me when listening to the cd is the quality of each song. If you weren’t aware that this was a sophomore effort, you could fool a listener into thinking this was a greatest hits record by a band that has 5+ releases under their belts. Each song is THAT GOOD. Even the classic rock and roll records have had a track or two that ends up getting skipped for not being up to par but every single track on “Crazy In The Head”, is good enough to be a hit single. The Three Bad Jacks refused to throw in any “filler” tracks and the end result is 13 songs that make up what I would honestly consider to be in the top 20 greatest rock and roll records of all time.
The Three Bad Jacks are here and they will make you Crazy In The Head!
