Jack Flash – “Rebel’s Revenge” (mp3)
When I took a temporary job in Toowoomba back in October, I did so with the mindset that it would only be for a couple of months, and that I could go back to Brisbane for gigs every weekend if I wanted to.
The temporary job led me to a permanent one and four months on, I’m settled in and starting to explore the city’s music scene. Sure, there are a lot of dreadful covers bands and a few originals bands that are inexplicably worse, but there is some cool quirky stuff going on.
Jack Flash are a Toowoomba folk-punk band for people who like Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly and drinking lots of home brew. I find bands like this more “punk” than certain bands being given a leg-up by the national broadcaster’s youth arm and hell, I’d prefer to get my Australiana this way than being forced to listen to John Williamson drawl his way through True Blue.
They supported Defiance, Ohio earlier on this week. Stalk them on Facebook.
