The above introduction was written by Jack Lipson and read by their friend Maxx Vogel at the jackbenny single release party this Tuesday. Following Girl Underground Music’s coverage the event at The Satellite in Silver Lake, the single is now streaming on Soundcloud and (finally) on Spotify, even after the band was confused with the deceased comedian Jack Benny. It details the struggle for individuality and recognition in a humorous light-hearted Broadway-influenced pop tune. There is nothing that hasn’t already been said about jackbenny, so the single can speak for itself. It will, in fact, provoke a severe does of joy. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
