Jack Adaptor J'Accuse on Limited Edition Import LP
J'Accuse is a 2014 album from Jack Adaptor. Twenty years after the demise of independent rock favorites The Family Cat, singer and lyricist Paul "Fred" Frederick returned with a new record as Jack Adaptor, his new duo project with songwriting partner Christopher Cordoba. Fans of the Family Cat will recognize the vocal style and find joy in the sophisticated songwriting of Frederick and Cordoba, from up-tempo indie rockers like "Number One Record" (a tribute to Alex Chilton and Big Star) to atmospheric, genre-defying songs such as "V.U." Fred wrote the lyrics and sings the songs, while Cordoba provides most of the instruments, production and mixing skills. Fred refers to this record as, "a distillation of 20 years thinking about music and the kind of record I really wanted to make. Now I feel I really have something to say and the musicians to give it life."
