“Pretty-Damn-Cool” is a high energy video. A muted guitar gets the band rolling on this song, and the drums soon follow this 80’s style feel. The band all jumps in with a bass and guitar playing the same melody in tandem, utilizing a broken ascending diminished scale. Building up the energy for the vocals that follow the breakdown, Mister Jack comes in talking about a girl on his street that’s pretty sweet. The humor kicks in as he continues to describe her. He sings the hook with sing along overdubs, “I don’t know what it is about you”. After the hook, the band responds with the same unison pattern and Mister Jack continues to narrate more of the song. It’s fun, it’s funny, and it’s pretty damn cool.
Born in Hammersmith, West London, in 1986, the artist known as Mister Jack has garnished many accolades over the years for his brand of music which is an anthemic mix of what he calls “power pop, punk, rock, ska and a hint of British humor”. A self-taught guitarist by the age of 10, Mister Jack began writing guitar riffs while performing in U.K. punk rock bands from 2004-2006. He was honored with an exclusive feature in the Reggae section of Bebo.com, became the 18th most viewed musician on YouTube UK, and Garageband.com also awarded him numerous honors for his songs. He became the featured artist in August 2009 on Pax Stereo TV and his single “Pretty Damn Cool” on Arival Records had a total of 50,000 YouTube views. His latest single, pop reggae Christmas track “Santa Is Comin’,” will be released in time for the Holiday Season on December 13, 2010.
