"In the beginning, there was Jack.  And Jack had a groove."

On Thursday, January 26th, Strangelove pays homage to electronic 
visionary Jack Dangers.

DJs Tomas Diablo, Mitch (Death Guild, Meat), and very special guest Ben 
Stokes (DHS, MBM) spin the best mixes and our favorite tracks from Meat 
Beat Manifesto, Tino Corp, and Jack's remix work for such artists as 
Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, DHS, the Cranes, Coil, BiGod 20, 
Consolidated, and many more.  And, of course, the best dark electro, 
industrial, new wave, and goth.

We will be giving away tickets to see Meat Beat Manifesto at Mezzanine 
on February 9th, as well as other Meat Beat Manifesto-related treats 
such as posters and classic MBM albums.

Details below...

A brief history of Jack

After the breakup of the group 'Perennial Divide', Jack Dangers formed 
Meat Beat Manifesto in 1987, and mixed hip-hop beats with power noise. 
Initially considered an industrial act, MBM released a string of 
hard-hitting tracks on the Wax Trax label, such as 'God O.D.', 'Strap 
Down', and 'Genocide'.  In 1990, Meat Beat Manifesto changed labels and 
released the seminal classic '99%', which contained 'Psyche Out', and 
'Helter Skelter'.  A B-side from this album, 'Radio Babylon', is widely 
recognized as the catalyst for the birth of jungle music.  In the 90's, 
Jack inspired the big-beat sounds of artists like Prodigy and the 
Chemical Brothers, and released 3 more albums - 'Satiricon', the double 
album 'Subliminal Sandwich', and 'Actual Sounds and Voices'.  After the 
commercial success of the single 'Prime Audio Soup' on the Matrix 
soundtrack, Jack dissolved Meat Beat Manifesto and released a string of 
records for DJs on the Tino Corp label (founded by Jack and Ben 
Stokes).  In recent years, Jack reformed Meat Beat Manifesto and 
released the albums 'RUOK?', the jazz-oriented 'At the Center' and 
follow-up EP 'Off-centre', the DVD album 'In Dub', and a remix 
collection based on the Storm the Studio sessions.  Jack has also 
recently released a number of albums of his solo work.

Jack Dangers is also an established remix artist, and his distinctive 
sound is instantly recognizable.
