Biography

Chicago-by-way-of-Philly trio THE JAI-ALAI SAVANT (pronounced hi-a-lie- sa-vant) have been active since 2002. Their list of influences are vast and their sound eclectic, but it’s their reggae-slanted post-punk roots that take the foreground in the most recent music of the band. Their genre-bending pop compositions coupled with an obvious love of bass culture have drawn comparisons to everyone from the Clash to The Police, Trench mouth and Fugazi.

    You people are clueless if you can't hear a reggae/dub influence in the music. Almost half the tracks have it. I wouldn't call them a reggae band though.

    Jai-Alai Savant remixing De-loused in the Comatorium? that sounds unlikely. There have been murmurs of the Mars Volta releasing a remix album, with different artists remixing Mars Volta songs. That could have fallen through though, but El-P did remix The Widow, and it's not a sextacular as one might expect.

    Heard something about them doing a remix of the De-Loused in the Comatorium-album by The Mars Volta. Anyone know something about this?
