The jacks - The last of the real American heroes 7'' (1999)

01. The last of the real American heroes
02. Tonight
03. Guitar gangsters
04. Dead men tell no tales

Released by Haunted Town Records in 1999.

An overlooked New Jersey band that probably released more songs on compilation albums than on real records. The lineup was Rich on vocals, Jonny on guitar, Jay on bass and Rob on drums.
They made a name for themselfs on the 1999 four-way split record called 4 bands from New Jersey... that was released by Headache Records in 1999 (a great release i will get to sometime in the future). Here they shared the record with Headwound, The outsiders and Hudson Falcons. Except from that release this was their only release by the band untill late 00's where all the members except Jay reunited and recorded a bathload of songs that resulted in a 7'' on RLD Records.

Their sound where sort of a streetpunkish oi!/rnr hybrid alá New Jersey (think Those unknown mixed with Hudson Falcons).
The whole EP is solid with great singalong parts and features Mark Linskey from Hudson Falcons on guitar but the best one is Tonight, a great song where Rich is on top the whole song through.
A classic EP that you really should get your hands on if you can find it (it pops up on ebay from time to time).
