Whiskey Jack - Demo
Nestled, and hidden away waiting for that special ocassion to consume. Somewhere near "I don't give a f*ck" what you think land lies an indie talent, they're name is Whiskey Jack. Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, rehearsals are soft scales and grind 'em out hymns amongst friends. At least that's the inspiration for bothering to record Not achieving fame or gold record status, just jammin out with some friends.
On their three song demo, bits of Bluegrass, Punk and Southern Rock are the most aggressive genre and vibe throughout. More than a genrification, Whiskey Jack minces nearly fourty years of rock. For instance, track two Folks Like Me starts with a nice blend of progressive blues, while song three Trackstar is a repetitive but ballsy little number laden with grit and an original sounding hooks.
Stopping in between bars of melody and atmosphere, lead singer Stefan Prigmore has a vein popping, deep bluesmatic set of pipes most would trade for. All the while lead guitarist Jimmy Owen leads the pathway with distinctive melodies, and finger fretting. Both bassist Steve Jordan and drummer Oscar Villareal round out the sound with a subtle but pounding seam.
With the first track Ain't Goin Back To Jail spotlights a consistent tempo all the way through. Beginning with a slow jangling of the guitar strings from Owen, and that dusty but clear cut set of pipes from Prigmore set a magnifying level on the tumbleweed feel of this song. Lyrically the demo teeters on pugilistic indepedence.
