Jesse Hackett – Junk
- Stones Throw
- US - Original
On JUNK, Hackett created the sounds with a Yamaha PSR-110 that he literally found in a recycling dump. Hackett was inspired to work within the parameters of the keyboard as a template and see how far he could take it. “I like the idea of making beauty from rubbish – or so-called rubbish,” he says.“I wrote all the songs in different styles from glam rock to sleazy lizard lounge punk-funk,” he explains, on a “pretty ropey” keyboard. He explores a range of themes on JUNK: on ‘Closet Jazz’, a musician hides his jazz tendencies for fear of being ridiculed by his friends, and ‘I Don’t Wanna Get Old’, tackles fear of ageing via lyrics about an amphibian man. But there’s a bleaker underbelly to many of the songs. Hackett is unafraid to tackle weightier subjects, from a relationship that reached a “sacred oblivion” to imminent apocalypse.
