The Jackobins

'Rugged and raw indie that wouldn’t be out of place on one of those awesome ‘Shine’ compilations that ran throughout the 90’s. Barely over one year old and picking up listeners by the bucket-load, The Jackobins stand a strong chance of really asserting themselves on a much larger scale.' The five piece LIverpool band take their influences from bands including The Doors, Jack White and Pink Floyd.
