Biography

The best way to describe JCK's sound is definitely Haberdash Rap. A breakaway from traditional Hip Hop with elements of Rock, Funk, Pop and Electronica. On one hand the group have huge Pop sensibilities with catchy hooks and choruses sung by sultry singer Lou Ludbrook. On the other hand front man James Castady-Kristament brings an almost gothic sound to the music like a brooding vampiric figure. If you could imagine a rapping vamp, a 'Count Rapulla' if you will. JCK seem to explore every facet of sound and emotion and cover a large musical and emotional spectrum from comedic lyrics and moods to darker and more ethereal feeling joints. A hard group to describe or fit in a nut shell until you hear the music and experience the seemingly impossible mixture of styles coming together in there very own unique sound.

Lyrics

Spirit

Written By: James castady-Kristament

Verse 1

She was only 21 just another kid looking for some fun girl living on the run. Parents didn't get along very well. Ran away because her life was hell. Hung out with some guys who ran in a gang, used to feed her all these lines all the time man. Tell her she was pretty, tell her she was fine, get her drunk, get her doped up out of her mind. Force used to turn to rape, every man in a gang had a turn to take. Life was a mistake. She was going to break. Scared to go to sleep, so she'd just lay awake. Dreaming of the day that she could run away. All she wanted was some time in the sunshine. Wanted everything to be alright. These men are going to take your life tonight.

Pre Chorus

Her spirit it walks through the fog. Leads me from the city, takes me down to the falls. She stops and she turns at the tree. Thats when she spoke to me.

Chorus

They killed me here. Somebody find my body x2 Because I can never rest until you take me home and I can never rest until you find my bones.

Verse 2

And I guess I didn't even want to hear it. Since I was a child I've been sensitive to spirits. She came and she spoke to me. Told me that her only hope was me. And I could feel this great sense of sorrow. The ghost wont let me wait until tomorrow. And I guess I did everything I could. I remember she's a member of my own neighborhood it wasn't any good. In this little town we've always had our killers. Low life scum bags and other drug dealers. And I wonder how her parents feel now that she's gone. She don't need no memory her spirit lives on in the song. No one ever found the men who did it. No one would come forward, no one would admit. Police couldn't crack the case so they quit it. No one found her body bro, or where they hid it. Maybe she'll give me some pictures of their faces, these killers yeah these low-life rapists. Its a cold world and I'm so so sorry, I wanna help you girl I'm telling your story.

Pre Chorus

Her spirit it walks through the fog. Leads me from the city, takes me down to the falls. She stops and she turns at the tree. Thats when she spoke to me.

Chorus

They killed me here. Somebody find my body x2 Because I can never rest until you take me home and I can never rest until you find my bones.

Verse 3

What's your name spirit, I said to the mist. A vision of a woman with her hands clenched in a fist. "My name is Lucy, you know who I was, I can't rest while my body is lost. Please find me and put me to rest. Follow me now and I'll show you where it is, where my body lies, out there by the falls". Wait I gotta find a spade I gotta find a torch. Drove to the spot where the spirit said she lay - I must have been crazy. Dug in a spot, until I hit a box .... Then I fell into SHOCK.

Chorus

They killed me here. Somebody find my body x2 Because I can never rest until you take me home and I can never rest until you find my bones.

OUTRO

I heard her say as she walked away

"Please find my bones, find my body"
