What you have before you is The Jagaloons cover record… well some of it. The plan is to release a song a week for 10 weeks. Why?
Well, it’s funny what pops into the collective band consciousness while discussing a lot about livin’ (and a little ’bout love) while cruising the ice slicked back roads of Vermont headed to a show. So with a healthy dose of Herb Alpert and various other “influences” this idea of a covers album was born.
Before forming The Jagaloons, we all cut our teeth in bands of various styles. We played punk, HC, ska, metal, whatever….Playing and listening to so many different genres molded our sound and added some strange ideas about what songs to cover and add to the set. So over the last few years we have had a rotating catalog of covers, and while we had a couple on our award winning debut LP …RUIN THE PARTY, we had this surplus of songs just kind of hanging out.
We realize this is not a novel idea and yeah, maybe you’ve heard versions of these songs before, but this is our interpretation SO JUST CALM DOWN. ANYWAY, over the coming weeks we are going to release these songs that we all love. They range from traditional surf to pop to punk to metal. A REAL MIXED BAG FROM SOME REAL MIXED UP JAGS! ENJOY!
