Jack Jones poet


Link to documentary

Woke up this Sunday morning and my partner was playing this excellent radio documentary about Jack Jones, a young welsh poet and musician. Not musically but lyrically he reminded me a lot of Leonard Cohen. There is kind of a dark ripeness and rawness to his work. I found it really dazzling. Like a dark sun. Jack lives in Berlin and is a guitarist for the Libertines musician Pete Doherty. It’s only half an hour long and was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and Radio Wales. Not sure it was in house BBC or indie. I really recommend it.
