Joe Jackson

joejackson2Midlander Jackson was a music college graduate and cabaret arranger before he discovered pub rock, nicked Elvis Costello‘s clothes and Graham Parker‘s vocal stylings, and hitched a ride on the New Wave.

He went on to international success, particularly in America, by updating a range of ancient style including Jump-Jive and sub-Cole Porterisms.
