Silent Jack – Interview, September 2015

Silent Jack – Interview with PlanetMosh, September 2015

Louise for PlanetMosh interviews 3/4 of Silent Jack after Highway to Hell 6 at O2 Academy, Sheffield. Silent Jack were our featured band in August 2014 (see here) but this was the first chance I’ve had to interview them in person. They have already released EP Snakebite and are releasing  their début EP Play The Game on 30th September 2015 with a launch party at The Roadhouse in Birmingham on 13th September 2015. You can pre-order the album here via their PledgeMusic Campaign.

Yeah spot my deliberate mistake when I said ‘I’m here at The Roxy in Sheffield’ an easy mistake as it was formerly The Roxy, home to some brilliant Rock Nights a few years ago!

Silent Jack are:

Rich ‘Stitch’ Mason – Vocals/2nd Guitar
Adam Carson – Lead Guitar
Dickie Spider – Bass Guitar
Scott Carson – Drums/Backing Vocals


About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
