TUNE IC1s - Whack Jack (Demo)
"They're a little bit Libertines, a little bit Ramones - but they're certainly 100% London. Whack Jack must surely serve as a stomping, unifying crowd pleaser live. The punk rock chorus comes out of precisely nowhere and is the sort of thing the word 'tasty' was invented for" Pete Donaldson (XFM)
"Whack Jack" starts off as a slow number with Coburn's deceptively soothing and plaintive vocals. This, however, is no ballad of despair and heartbreak, with the intro soon giving way to a catchy, singalong number which is certain to induce a mad, cheering cacophony of pure joy. In spite of the slow start, this is definitely a song which is best played at full volume as you enter the joyous world of the IC1's and accept the inevitability that you'll soon end up chanting the hook "I'm a little bit whack jack, little bit mental, little bit coo coo but experimental" long into the night.
