"Photos from Jack Comes Alive Sept"

Last night saw the third of our Jack Comes Alive nights take place and we are all the worst for wear for it! Big thanks to everyone who took part including Miss Win It who gave out some amazing prizes, The Voxx and Cordelier Club who both played blinding sets and DJs Jason Gregory, and Bits Missing. Not so much to Othello Wolf who never turned up. - Who's Jack


"Live Review: The Voxx @ The Enterprise, 28/01/11"

Over Christmas, I stumbled upon a London-based band called The Voxx, who have supported Babyshambles and The View. Listening to the brief samplers on good old MySpace, I would have guessed that The Kinks and Oasis were amongst their influences, but there was little information about the band online. Intrigued, there was only one way to find out more: attend their next gig on 28th January, at The Enterprise in Camden.

The small room above the pub was packed long before The Voxx arrived on stage. The three band members shared vocals to sublime effect, but were sometimes overpowered by the sheer strength of the guitar. I could see female members of the audience watching lead guitarist Michael Buckley closely, with his indie stomps and casual attractiveness. The set-list was packed with songs from their album, Doll Skin Flag - each one proving their originality, with honest lyrics that are hard to come by these days. With their Noel Gallagher-esque expressions, it was hard to tell if The Voxx were truly satisfied with their performance; however, a later comment on their Facebook page saying it had been ‘quite an exceptional night’ told me they had enjoyed it. I’m not sure I would have called it ‘exceptional’, but only because the venue was claustrophobically packed and far too hot – not just due to Mikey... I look forward to seeing The Voxx play again, somewhere bigger and better. - Roar

Bio

The Voxx are a three-piece alternative rock band from London, England.

Featuring Mikey Buckley on guitar and lead vocals, Claude Trejonis on drums and Daniel McLean on bass, The Voxx have toured extensively across the United Kingdom and Europe, supporting acts including Babyshambles, The View and Band Of Skulls. Their music has also featured on John Kennedy’s XFM Exposure show, Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 6 Music show, and Gary Crowley's BBC Introducing.

The Voxx are characterised by an instantly recognisable sonic pop sound, which seems capable of shifting from raucous to reflective at will. Much of their energy can be accredited to the driving rhythm section of Trejonis and McLean, while the swirling guitars of Buckley add exuberant colour and the three-part vocal harmonies bring a spacey, ambient tint to the eclectic mix.

Comparisons have been drawn with the likes of Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, Beck and Supergrass, while the band also enjoy veering towards the psychedelic rock of MGMT and at times, even the rousing film scores of John Barry.

Familiar faces on the London circuit, their energetic live shows and catchy songs have earned The Voxx a loyal following and 2011 sees the release of their debut single, ‘Going Out’, and highly anticipated album, ‘Doll Skin Flag’.

‘Doll Skin Flag’ was produced by Mark Gardener – formerly of pre-eminent British band Ride – who described his time working with the band as ‘a total pleasure and a trip’. The album also features strings on several tracks performed by members of The Heritage Orchestra, recent collaborators with UNKLE.
