RARE VINYL SERIES: ORIGAMI VINYL, DTLA
Neil Schield : The Jacks, Vacant World
About five years back I was trolling the internet for Japanese Rock and stumbled upon some outdated website documenting the lost sounds of Japanese Garage Rock from the 60’s. Many of the bands were influenced by the sounds of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys. The Jacks were Japan’s most interesting and creative answer to that sound. Their album “Vacant World” displayed the most awesome heavy fuzz sound that spun my head around. I’ve been rocking this album ever since. Sadly the thing is so rare, I haven’t been able to get my hands on a copy. You can get a fix of The Jacks here, and read more about their releases on Garage Hangover.
