Jack The Lad - Av It!
Started out in 2013, Jack The Lad has been around for a good two years now, playing everyone’s favorite Oi! and punk anthems live by the likes of The 4 Skins, Blitz, The Business, Cock Sparrer, Cockney Rejects, Condemned 84, Slaughter And The Dogs and so on, causing a real sing-along galore. But these British lads got a few tricks up their own sleeves as well, as the band proudly presents their two-track debut single “Av It!” for Rebellion Records!
Besides covering all-time favorites, these lads have also been active in various other British outfits for years and that is something you can definitely hear back in the two tracks, “You Can Have It” and “Get Up”. Because despite being two Jack The Lad originals, the songs have both the swag and power to easily compete with some of Britain’s finest Oi! bands from the 90’s. Combining the rough, gritty side of Gundog with the more melodic elements of The Warriors, Jack The Lad bursts out two powerful sing-alongs that fans of the more traditional British Oi! sound will ‘av’ all day long!
I’m curious to hear what the future will bring for Jack The Lad and how the balance of covers and own compositions will develop over time, but the lads’ debut single “Av It!” definitely shows some potential! “Av It!” comes in four colors of vinyl and the black one is the most limited with only 50 copies, while either the red, white or blue vinyl comes in 150 copies of each color.
