Mr Jukes on Indie Accent

Mr Jukes

c. 2016 | ORIGIN: ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM

Not many musical projects start on a cargo ship, journeying for two long weeks across the North Pacific Ocean. Former Bombay Bicycle Club frontman Jack Steadman has always been a traveller, and this took things to extremes. But it was here that he first began to piece together what would eventually become Mr Jukes – a soul-fused, funk and jazz-rooted project that, on paper, seems a similar distance from his indie roots as the cargo ship's own slog of a trip, from Shanghai to the west coast of Canada.
Steadman boarded the ship shortly after his old group disbanded. It took months of research, but he doesn't disclose exactly how he made it happen – a quick browse online doesn't bring up similar itineraries. (noisey.vice.com)
