(The Jack Cades formed in 2017 when their first mini LP was recorded at North Down Sound in Kent, UK. At this time it was just two people (Mike & Elsa) wanting to record a few songs they had written. They asked Mole (State Records, The Embrooks) to join them on drums and John Gibbs (The Masonics, Wildebeests) to join them on bass for the session. Their sound is raw, influenced by rhythm n’ blues and 60s garage punk.
When they decided to carry on as a band—this required a full time bass player at which point they brought in Alexandra Cools (Speedball Jr.) and The Jack Cades were born.
The band has always been hugely influenced by the sounds of the 60s, mainly US garage and UK beat bands from that time, but they are also influenced by a wide range of bands from different eras, some more modern, such as The Stone Roses for example.
In April 2019, they decided to go record the 11 songs that would form their new album “Perfect View” with Liam Watson at Toe Rag Records in London. Liam completely understood what they were trying to achieve. The result is powerful… listen, and you will see!)
