Peel Sessions : Joe Jackson

Today I’ve decided to choose Joe Jackson, whom along with Elvis Costello, I purchase everything they release. Both are great songwriters and they don’t stick with one genre. I have only seen Joe Jackson live in concert a couple of times and they were in the 80’s. The good news is that he’s still releasing albums, be it a soundtrack or a full-blown album. He has a new album out in June 2013 entitled ‘The Duke‘. Lyrically he’s superb and can play a multitude of instruments, though his piano playing is quite awesome. His early material was tagged onto the new wave and mod revivals of the time which wasn’t really what he was about. He was just a young guy with plenty of spirit. This Peel session shows him from where he began and even here you can see his love of different types of music.
