Video of the Moment #338: The Static Jacks

By on Thursday, 2nd September 2010 at 6:00 pm

The Static Jacks are a young rock band from New Jersey. And when I say young, I mean young – they opened for the Futureheads during their brief tour of America’s East Coast this past June. This was when I experienced the Jacks live for the first time and noticed that most of them (if not all) had Xs on their hands indicating they weren’t allowed to drink at the Black Cat.

Despite their age and relative lack of experience compared to their Futureheads elders, I could see why the blokes from Sunderland had chosen them for the tour. The Static Jacks have a lot of energy, just like they do. Check out their new video for ‘My Parents Lied’ below. It’s pretty bare bones but it captures what they’re all about. The band will be playing with Biffy Clyro in America later this month.
