JACK & SALLY - Ask 6


HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?

Josh Jacobs (Guitars) - Blink-182’s I Miss You and the Nightmare Before Christmas. Obviously. We wanted to bring across the idea that we’re all going through the same shit in life, different flavour - we’re all Jack and Sally.

-

WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?

Prav Smith (Drums) - The Water Rats, King’s Cross, London. About 15-20 people.

Josh - We thought we we’re the f**king coolest. We sucked. But hey, we learnt…

Ben - As Josh said. I took two guitars to the gig to play power chords on 6 songs. Haha. At least that was our first gig!

-

WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?

Prav - Last weekend, spent it with my cousin sister in Manchester.

Josh - Okay its tomorrow but READING FESTIVAL!! Foo Fighters, A Day to Remember, Enter Shikari - it's going to be madness.

Ben - I got back from my holiday yesterday - I was in India for the past couple of weeks to attend my cousin’s engagement and spent a few days just sleeping!

-

WHAT IS SOMETHING - APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET - THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?

Prav - Nicorette smoking cessation gum. Josh - My glasses. I’m blind as a bat. I wear contacts on stage though.

Ben - Ok Pravir’s lying. He only moved from cigarettes to the gum a week ago and it’ll only last as long as his vape did - 1 week. For me, I always carry my wrist bands - I’m always wearing one!

-

WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU'D WRITTEN?

Prav - The Pretender (Foo Fighters)

Josh - Arguing with Thermometers (Enter Shikari). Rou Reynolds is a musical genius.

Ben - Jesus of Suburbia (Green Day). I mean come on, it’s the greatest song ever written!

-

WHAT'S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?

Prav - When the crowd at Camden Rocks sang the end of Tomorrow’s Revolution (our first single) with us!

Josh - So far? Probably when we had a girl ask her friend to borrow money to buy our merch. I mean. THANK YOU!

Ben - Hmmm… After our set at the Camden Rocks Presents show in January 2019, a girl came up to me to say how amazing we were on stage and she asked to take a photo with me. That was truly awesome!
