A handful of 45 rpm on foreign labels, among them the prestigious American label ROB’S House (the original Black Lips label), and extended tours to the four corners of the earth, have already established Jack of Heart from Perpignan as one of the benchmark groups of the rock and roll ghetto. With this first album, Jack of Heart plans to widen its audience – the group already shows a maturity of composition that is quite novel on the French Rock and roll scene.
Of course, Jack of Heart lays claim to the psychedelism of Syd Barret’s Pink Floyd, the legacy of Velvet and the songwriting of Lee Hazlewood, but the group goes beyond these to produce a very individual Rock’n roll, annhilating the rules of garage folklore which is often too regressive and backward-looking. Although the group beats out hallucinatory psychedelic ballads in twisted and vicious garage-punk pieces they never sink into cliché.
