A British recording artist with a long and varied career, Joe Jackson is still famed for his earliest albums. The most Elvis Costello-like artist who isn't Elvis Costello, Jackson blends strong pop melodies with scathing social commentary. His debut album Look Sharp! ushered in the punk offshot new wave, along with bands like Blondie, the Cars and the aforementioned Costello. Jackson hit his commercial peak in 1982 with the album Night and Day and the single 'Steppin' Out'. But aside from his popular new wave career, Jackson also had strong big band, ska and reggae influences..
A few years ago, his hit single 'Is She Really Going Out With Him?' was covered by California pop/rock band Sugar Ray; in 2004, he guested on William Shatner's cover of Pulp's anthemic 'Common People'.
Not to be confused with the famous Jackson family patriarch and father of Michael, Janet etc. « hide
