It has been 25 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild untamed and uncouth approach to rock n roll. Equal parts hard rock heavy metal and Southern rock Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock n roll back back to its down to earth wild fun loving origins. Full of spit and swagger and a dirty sense of humor to boot. Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyls live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract. The 1992 self titled debut album went platinum and featured notable rock radio hits like Down On Me .. When Will It Rain.. I Stand Alone .. and most notably The Lumberjack.. during which vocalist Jesse James Dupree performed a chainsaw solo. Duprees chainsaw escapades on album and in concert became one of many Jackyl trademarks. Touring mates in those early days included Aerosmith .. Kiss.. ZZ Top.. Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. 1993 saw Mental ....! featured on The Beavis & Butt-head Experience.. a compilation album of songs tied in with MTVs hit cartoon series it was eventually certified triple platinum. 1994 was one of the most important years in the bands career. The second album Push Comes To Shove.. hit the streets and went gold. That August Jackyl turned in one of the most acclaimed performances at Woodstock 1994 in Saugerties NY and the resulting double album Woodstock 94 went platinum and included Headed For Destruction ..a track from Push Comes To Shove. The live recording Night Of The Living Dead was released exclusively in Europe on Mayhem Records in 1996. It was not long before Jackyl followed A&R legend John Kalodner.. who had signed them to Geffen to Sony Musics imprint Epic Records. Cut the Crap was released in 1997 and benefited from two industry heavyweights overseeing its recording: producer Mike Fraser.. AC/DC & Metallica and mixer Kevin Shirley.. silverchair & Aerosmith. This album spawned the rock radio hit Locked and Loaded.. which included guest vocals by AC/DCs Brian Johnson. It was the first time Johnson had ever recorded with any artist but AC/DC since he joined the band 17 years earlier. A collection of Bsides titled Stayin Alive appeared on Shimmering Tone Records in 1998 but the biggest highlight of the year was Geffens release of the best of collection Choice Cuts and the related promotional events Jackyl did to help promote it. The band earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation The Hardest Working Band in Rock N Roll for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Dupree says the most grueling of the two was 21 shows in 24 hours .. Jackyl completed that task in Texas and the shows were all done with full lights and sound. The daytime sets were 45 minutes long whereas the ones done at nighttime were between 90 and 120 minutes long. Jackyl released Relentless on Humidity Records in 2002. It contained the second collaboration with Brian Johnson Kill the Sunshine. Universal Music/Geffen Records also issued a Jackyl volume as part of its acclaimed 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection besto of series in 2003. For a band that built its reputation as road warriors it is surprising that a full length live album meant for worldwide release did not appear until 2004 with the separate release of the Live at the Full Throttle Saloon CD and DVD on Sanctuary Records. Live at the Full Throttle Saloon was recorded and filmed in summer 2003 in Sturgis, South Dakota as part of the legendary annual biker rally festivities held there. In 2010 the band completed their release titled My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaines Ass. Staying true to their working band roots, ever since 2008 Jackyl has been on the road playing the summer festival circuit as well as many other choice off-season venues.
