A few things you should now about Handsome Jack: They’re from Lockport, NY. Their influences are rock and roll. They sound like rock and roll.
Do I have to say more? Well, do you remember how the Supersuckers used to thrash and trash their way through rock and the blues? Does your soundsystem shout out the rock revivalist sounds of Wolfmother, Priestess, The Buffalo Killers, or Vietnam? Answering no to the above questions, while it may not score any points with me, doesn’t preclude you from kicking out this monster jam.
I’ve said enough. It’s time to tune in, turn up the volume, and rock out.
