Biography

This is the house that Jack built. Formed in early 2008, Mark (bass/vox), Paul (guitar/vox), James (percussion/vox) and Aaron (guitar/vox) are House that Jack Built. They are not a Metallica album track, nor in fact are they an Aretha Franklin song, the name is, typically, taken from an old English fable written by an author whose identity is oft discussed over good coffee (something the band enjoy every bit as much as an anonymous work of literature). Despite having somewhat lofty lyrical influences House that Jack Built’s musicality is rooted firmly in pop, taking influences from contemporary melody makers like the Young Knives, Field Music and Futureheads. Floundering in the below average bracket of basic arithmetic skill, math rock was always out of the question. Instead, a large part of the band’s artistic influences comes from words and ideas leather bound in the annals of English literature (where does that leave us… Lit rock?!)
