PAUL JACOBS

GARAGE/ROCK/POP-PSYCH

A DIY rock'n'roll machine surfing on grease, as sweaty and motley as his self-drawn album covers, Paul Jacobs runs on day-glo slickness and creative frenzy (with six albums and a slew of EPs and singles in only three years, his floodgates are fully open). The native of Windsor, Ontario, now established in Montreal, epitomizes the new garage sound. He has shared stages with PyPy, Demon's Claws, and the Marinellis, spewing out savagely catchy songs while beer and other bodily fluids flow freely through the crowd.

Paul Jacobs is a mad garage-rock scientist.

PRESS

With hair in his face and limbs that jolted and snapped like fleshy whips, Jacobs blasted through every song, a cacophony of percussion and mangled guitar landing somewhere between lo-fi punk and a massive spurt of unfiltered aggression. He sings angrily, he plays angrily, and he even sips beer with a hint of rage. Jacobs makes anger seem real and natural and totally alluring.
— CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
Very intense, very dirty and very raw, it has 13 songs which make us want to smash our head against the fridge (...) Lastly, let us not forget to mention all the pop melodies it contains, (...) Paul Jacobs also knows how to write music for our teenage dreams.
— Still In Rock
Perhaps it’s the scraggly hair or the slender, shirtless body that seems to have a fair share of wear and tear, but Paul Jacobs comes across as a kindred spirit of Iggy Pop. Positioning himself at the front of the crowd, Jacobs went to war with his seven-piece band through a series of psych pop songs played with a raw punk energy. The keyboardist’s use of maraca and tom drum and Jacobs’ handclap wielding sample pad added the perfect dose of primal percussion as their kaleidoscopic dream-world went up in flames with each passing tune.
