Paul Jacobs


©Christian Leduc-1527 copy.jpg

Machine rock 'n' roll DIY déferlante et graisseuse, musicien dément, suant et aussi bariolé que les illustrations qu'il signe pour ses pochettes, Paul Jacobs – appuyé par un féroce quintette - carbure à la perméabilité fluo et à la célérité créative (6 albums et une traînée d'EPs et singles en seulement 3 ans, qui dit mieux, on ouvre les lignes). Le natif de Windsor, ON désormais établi à Montréal est un épitomé du nouveau son garage - il a partagé la scène avec PyPy, Demon's Claws et les Marinellis, et propulse des airs sauvages et catchy pendant que bières et fluides corporels de croisent dans des salles exaltées.

Presse

Pretty good, (...) I though it was good!
— Iggy Pop on BBC 6
With hair in his face and limbs that jolted and snapped like fleshy whips, Jacobs blasted through every song, a cacophony of percussion and mangled guitar landing somewhere between lo-fi punk and a massive spurt of unfiltered aggression. He sings angrily, he plays angrily, and he even sips beer with a hint of rage. Jacobs makes anger seem real and natural and totally alluring.
— Consequence Of Sound
Paul Jacobs is a mad garage-rock scientist.
— Weird Canada
Throughout, there are hooks and melodies – the album positively drips with them – but it’s combined with a singleminded wildness that’s desperately exciting. Pictures, Movies and Apartments might be the best garage punk record of the year.
— The Guardian
Perhaps it’s the scraggly hair or the slender, shirtless body that seems to have a fair share of wear and tear, but Paul Jacobs comes across as a kindred spirit of Iggy Pop. Positioning himself at the front of the crowd, Jacobs went to war with his seven-piece band through a series of psych pop songs played with a raw punk energy. The keyboardist’s use of maraca and tom drum and Jacobs’ handclap wielding sample pad added the perfect dose of primal percussion as their kaleidoscopic dream-world went up in flames with each passing tune.
— CULT MTL
