Elvis Presley Posters LP (vinyl)
Elvis Presley Posters CD
Elvis Presley Posters is the debut album from The Blackjacks, one of the most exciting new talents on the ‘roots’ music scene today.
If you’ve caught these young lads live, then you’ll know exactly why they’re causing such a stir.
In less than 2 years they have released a 4-track EP One After 909 and a follow up double A-Side single Burn Your Playhouse Down/Cool Grooves.
Both releases received fantastic reviews in the music press, and 2020 is set to be even busier for the lads, with more studio recording sessions scheduled and live appearances at top festivals throughout Europe.
Title track Elvis Presley Posters was penned by lead singer Mike Wallbank - a clever, witty song about his love/hate relationship with his landlord back in bedsit-land as an impoverished student.
“Is this the best Elvis-themed song since Kirsty MacColl? I think so” - Ian Wade (BBC London)
The stunning album artwork is by renowned British Pop-Artist, Steve Hardstaff aka Steve Jacuzzi.
The Blackjacks are certainly soaked in ‘roots’ music, but transcend multiple genres to create a fresh new sound that’s all their own.
They’re not pure rockabilly, they’re not pure skiffle, they’re not out and out country… quite simply they are The Blackjacks!
Great musicianship, boss vocal harmonies and catchy infectious tunes abound!
“There are hundreds of bands currently playing roots music in the UK, but I can’t name one that comes close to the fresh new sound and cleverly crafted songs that these young guys have created.” - Jerry Chatabox
“They sound like the bands did in the old days. The energy of the band resonates through the tracks.” - Marty Wilde
Elvis Presley Posters features 14 brand new recordings, with a special guest appearance on 3 tracks from neo-rockabilly legend, James G. Creighton (Shakin’ Pyramids) laying down some mean guitar licks!
James gifted the lads his own composition Jake The Snake which they use to conclude this superb album.
