TRAMPOLENE singer/songwriter Jack Jones’ spoken word pieces have already been described by Dr John Cooper Clarke as “Exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time and how often can you say that.”
The mini-album, which was recorded live at Konk Studios and produced by Jack Jones & Josh Green, includes single ‘The Gangway’ which has picked up multiple plays at Radio One and is playlisted at Radio X. ‘Tom Hardy’ a paean to a mythical star’s mind-boggling achievements, inspired by the idle boasts of singer Jack Jones’ school friend in Swansea. A raucous live rendition of the Cure classic, ‘Friday I’m In Love’ (recorded for a Radio X Session) and acoustic heartbreaker ‘Letting You Down.’ ‘The Gangway’ and ‘Tom Hardy’ were mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Jamie T / Everything Everything).
