"Ready to relive your high school rock band days, but with music that’s, you know…good? Austin outfit the Joe Jacksons perfectly capture that youthful energy, but they’re an experienced bunch. The core pairing of Black Joe Lewis (of the Honeybears) and Mario Matteoli (formerly of the Weary Boys) amplifies into a garage-rock powerhouse, with Lewis and Matteoli trading lead vocal duties and improvisational electric guitar licks that add to the overall after school “jam” feel of their songs. “It’s A Sin”–connected only in name to the recordings by Pet Shop Boys and Eddy Arnold–turns the knob up to eleven with ringing power chords, crashing drums, simplistically fun lyrics from Matteoli, and some wild guitar work courtesy of Lewis." KUTX SONG OF THE DAY

"The Joe Jacksons, a super side-project led by soul/rock firestarter Black Joe Lewis and Weary Boys frontman Mario Matteoli, issue their first recordings on 7-inch vinyl next week. Matteoli leads side A with high-octane rock & roll strutter "It's a Sin," while Lewis belts the paranoid punk backside "Shadow People," reminiscent of early Dead Moon. Snag one at the band's End of an Ear in-store Sunday, 6pm, or the following Thursday at the Continental Club. At press time, it was still unclear whether the band's named after the disgraced White Sox outfielder, Michael Jackson's domineering dad, or Mr. "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" AUSTIN CHRONICLE
