There are at least five (5) groups with the name (Jackson):
Jackson and His Computer Band is an IDM artist signed to Warp Records consisting of Jackson Fourgeaud, a 26-year-old Parisian composer. His style has been described as "a style orgy, a psychedelic celebration of conflict."
After his acid house debut on Pumpking records in 1996, Sound Of Barclay released the "Sense Juice" and "Gourmet EPs" under the name Jackson & His Computer Band. Even then, these thumping filtered house cuts sounded weirdly different to the prevailing "French Touch" style of Daft Punk and Cassius, leading to articles in NME, I-D, Jockey Slut and the like. On the back of this acclaim, Jackson was commissioned to remix an array of artists, sprinkling his fucked-up magic over Femi Kuti, Air, Vanessa Paradis, Freeform Five and Jean Jacques Perrey and Luke Vibert's forthcoming "Moog Acid". No one has yet remixed Jackson. This year he's DJed at parties in London (everywhere from The Social to Harrod's) and recently terrorised the idyllic Territoires Electroniques festival in Aix-en-Provence. Perhaps you caught his excellent DJ set on Radio 1's Breezeblock show in March. Now Jackson is working on a killer live show which will be unveiled around the time of Smash's release in September.
Jackson is the name of a little band out of San Antonio, Texas. Chad W. Eaton (Electric Guitar, Vocals), Cameron Feil (Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals), Daniel Palmer (Bass Guitar), Andrew Vespia (Electric Guitar), Robert Betts (Drums), Mills Ligon (Manager) and a variety of visiting musicians fill the Jackson lineup.
They describe their sound as "A little bit country, a little bit Rock and Roll."
Jackson O'Connell-Barlow (stage names: Iguanadon, Grape-a-Don, Nate Kukla, and Mr. Pennsylvania) makes up one half of the duo Grand Buffet along with Jarrod Weeks (stage names: M-Dog, Lord Grunge, Matt Kukla, Fred Durts). A hip-hop duo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Their music is a unique brand of humorous, often satirical rap.
There's another band called Jackson. Their 6 song self-titled debut release came out in spring of 2003. It's somewhat of an all-star punk-and-rock outfit comprised of CHRIS SHIFLETT (FOO FIGHTERS, ME FIRST & THE GIMME GIMMES, NO USE FOR A NAME), SCOTT SHIFLETT (FACE TO FACE), and PETE PARRADA (FACE TO FACE, SAVES THE DAY). They also released a 7" record called All the Way in late 2003. The band isn't full-time as some members are obligated to other bands. Their sound has been described as Weezer meets Teen Idols. Jackson have since changed their name to Jackson United
Jackson, what? THE ELECTRIC CITY
