The Jack Cades ‘Music For Children’

Shindig! are proud to stream the debut mini-LP from THE JACK CADES Music For Children, released on Dirty Water Records on May 18th


The Jack Cades were born in late 2017 when Mike (lead guitar, vocals) and Elsa (rhythm guitar, vocals) decided to record some of their songs at Mole’s (drums) notorious State Records Studios in Folkestone, Kent. They invited John Gibbs (The Masonics, The Wildebeests) to record bass on some of their songs at the time, which resulted in a mini debut LP Music For Children.

At first, the band wasn’t sure if it could work full-time as everybody was pretty busy on the garage/soul/freakbeat/other undefined musical genre scene.

Mike, Mole, and Elsa were all in other bands (The Baron Four, The Embrooks, The Galileo 7, The Missing Souls…) But, after recording, it wasn’t a difficult decision to make. It sounded too good!  The Jack Cades had to play live!

They then had the brilliant idea of asking the lovely Alexandra (Speedball Jr) to join them on bass, who accepted the proposition, thankfully.

The Jack Cades is a mix of a shared passion for inspirational sounds such as ’60s garage bands, snotty punk from the ’70s, sun-kissed sweaty rhythm ’n’ blues, and a lot of inspirational people.

If this means nothing to you, it doesn’t matter. Just listen to The Jack Cades and come see them play live, as music is for the soul and the ears, not for the eyes!

The story of ’60s garage band legends The Sloths

The Sloths played Hollywood’s Sunset Strip in the mid-60’s with legends such as Pink Floyd, The Animals, and The Doors. Releasing a racy single called ‘Makin’ Love” as teenagers may have prevented The Sloths from becoming legends themselves. Twenty years later the single resurfaced on the influential Back From The Grave series. Almost fifty years after the single, The Sloths reunited to perform incendiary live shows and record their first album. Check out their amazing story here
