Jakko's The Lad 23/8/20
Jakko M Jakszyk's enforced sabbatical from King Crimson has given him the opportunity to complete a new solo album, 'Secrets & Lies', due to be released on Friday 23rd October, of which the first single, ‘The Trouble With Angels’, has recently been released, complete with today's extraordinary animated Video Of The Day by Iranian film maker Sam Chegini. 'Secrets & Lies' contains ten songs that balances sensitive writing, musical technique and accessible tunes cast in an impressively cinematic sound world. The result is a mature work brimming with yearning melodies in symphonic or widescreen settings, fluid guitar work, and Jakko’s heartfelt, emotional vocals. Jakszyk is joined by bandmates Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin and Mel Collins, as well as appearances from John Giblin (Peter Gabriel), Mark King (Level 42), Peter Hammill (Van der Graff Generator) and noted British comedian Al Murray.
