Jacks – Vacant World
(Vinyl LP – Life Goes On Records)
One of the most groundbreaking bands in the field of Japanese psychedelic is a short lived group by the name of Jacks. Jacks formed in 1965, and in 1968, just three years later, Jacks released one of the most revolutionary albums to surface in 20th century Japanese music. The album, known in Japan as “Jacks no Sekai” (loosely translated as The World of Jacks), and known as “Vacant World” mostly everywhere else, showed the young group channeling pure psychedelic music with an experimental touch, and, with the album’s cozy, homelike atmosphere, various bands seemed to have immediately been influenced, starting with the likes of Happy End and Gedo.
