Crooked Jacks


Crooked Jacks are Canadian punk-rock warriors hailing from the musical purgatory of Sherbrook, Quebec. From street punks to aging skaters caught up in adult world they cant figure out anyone can relate to these guys.

Created in 2009 after many long nights, blistered fingers and various vices, Crooked Jacks mixes fast paced punk rock with catchy, almost country, guitar riffs. Known for their brutally honest lyrics that come straight from the heart, they convey a message of what its like to grow up caught between worlds, of what its like to feel out of place, and what its like to feel left behind. As depressing as this may seem, they have an uplifting and almost humoristic way of seeing things, and their on stage banter can atone to this.

Although they there have been a few roster changes over their four-year life span, the band appears to have settled into a winning combination, having recently brought one of the most experienced and talented punk rock drummers their area had to offer, Mark Lambert. Add to this Chris catchy country riffs, Matts fast-paced solos and Jays aggressive bass style, and you have a sound to be remembered.

Musically, the best way to describe them is to imagine that Screeching Weasel knocked up Social Distortion, and the resulting baby is a huge fan of The Broadways. From Springsteen to Cash, The Clash to The Pogues, their influences are as varied as their individual employment statuses.

In their four years of existence they have been mostly sticking to their neck of the woods, playing shows all over Quebec and Ontario, including a few mini-tours with bands like The Skullians and The Motorleague. They are working hard towards their next big challenge, a full east coast/maritime of Canada tour in the summer of 2014.

2013 was a big year for the boys in Crooked Jacks. Having played shows with bands they look up to like Mute, Miracles and Off With Their Heads, and sharing the stage with legends like Guttermouth and Agent Orange, many things they never thought possible came to be. They also had the chance to play one of Canadas biggest punk festivals, Pouzzafest. During all this, they also independently released their first full length EP in March, titled When Its All Over. Their first music video Whiskey and Cocaine was launched in October with the help of their good friends at RawCut Media.
The Canadian boys are currently recording and producing a six song EP straight out of their jam spot, to be released in the spring of 2014.
