London based 5-piece Jakal play a feral mash-up of punk, ska, reggae and dub. Conscious lyrics, skanking beats and dirty riffs usually keep things pretty sweaty. And flabby.
Our first CD was a 5 track EP titled NATION INFECTION which was released back in 2003. The second release in 2006 is a 2 track single - UTOPIA. Both were self-released and are now out of print. Utopia will be released again on an up and coming Tuneless Records compilation. More info to come.
Due to various changes to our line-up over the years there has been some rather patchy and inconsistent spells. However in 2009, with a batch of new songs and a firm and solid 5-piece line-up, we've self-released our 12-track album COMMUNITY (available at gigs or message us), and will be recording in the new year.
This year we've been able to play some amazing shows for Climate Camp, No Sweat and No Borders. Also for Pus Promos, Skawash and Reknaw, Rotten Luck, Toxic Punks, Dirty Ska Punk, Your Mum Promotions, Mudkiss and Beerbelly Promotions, who continue to put on consistently quality shows..relentlessly!
Over the years we've played shows with some amazing bands, including The Business, Leftover Crack, UK Subs, Headjam, The King Blues, The Filaments, Against All Authority, New York Relix, 5 Knuckle, Citizen Fish, Inner Terrestials, PAIN, Dead Pets, The Foamers, The Restarts, Moral Dilemma……and are always looking to play as many as possible, so get in contact!
