Suicide Jack
Tales of redemption, despair, heartache and dirty living…

The details of how Suicide Jack came to be are sordid enough to be the inspiration for one of their own whiskey-soaked, heart-wrenching ballads. Founding member and original pianist Robert Lee Mitchell was acquainted with an exotic dancer who went by the stage name “Nadine”. She was looking for someone to record a sultry version of the Chuck Berry song “Nadine” to strip to. As fate would have it, vocalist/drummer C.T. had just moved to Seattle from San Francisco and Mitchell asked he and bassist Dark Marc Brown to record the track with him (it can be heard on the Suicide Jack debut, “In Churches & Saloons”). The three went on to co-write two albums worth of low-down, hard-luck songs melding rhythm & blues, country-soul, rock, and honky-tonk.

Suicide Jack’s current lineup ranges in size from 4 players (“C.T.’s Skeleton Crew”) to 8 players, including founding member C.T. (lead vocals, drums), Ron Weinstein (Hammond B3 organ), Dave Keenan (guitar), Keith Lowe or Jeremy Lightfoot (bass), Mike Stone (drums), Micah Hulscher (piano), and Seattle sax stalwarts like Craig Flory, Skerik (who handles sax duties on both albums), and Hans Teuber. The band is currently working on their new album, tentatively titled “Drunken Angels”, slated to be released in 2006 on Eleggua Records.
