1st annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Three Bad Jacks
Sunday, October 7, 2012 | 12:00 am
One of Los Angeles’ biggest club draws, Three Bad Jacks’ hard hitting hybrid of soul, rock and rockabilly is most often described as psychobilly. Anchored by a throbbing gutbucket bottom end and topped off with bandleader Elvis Suissa’s passionate vocals and sizzling guitar, the trio delivers high-impact, soul-deep, thoroughly original, uncut rock and roll that belies a mastery of the underground American big beat heritage. Three Bad Jacks’ original mix of the sensitive and savage, and its ability to navigate a broad musical spectrum, has earned it a spot on tours with the likes of Joe Strummer, Jerry Lee Lewis, Dwight Yoakam, and Social Distortion. The band’s latest disc, Pictures and Memories From Home, was mixed by Dave Schiffman (Nine Inch Nails, System of a Down), mastered by Howie Weinberg (Clash, Iggy, Ramones) and features key contributions from Rami Jaffe (Wallflowers, Foo Fighters).
