The Jai-Alai Savant

The Jai-Alai Savant... A cracking power rock triumvirate hailing from Chicago. The product of fronting mastermind Ralph Darden, these boys pack a vibrant punch. Their songs, hook laden pop compositions one and all, channel the bounciest aspects of everything from reggae to post-punk. The emphasis is always on the joy of the groove. Rooted and self-aware, The Jai-Alai Savant offer a determinate option amidst the ceaseless erosion of independent music hype.

Tracks of note on their debut album Flight Of The Bass Delegate include "White On White Crime", "Thunderstatement", and "Scarlett Johansson Why Don't You Love Me", all present and correct on their myspace. Check out the video for "White On White Crime" below. Tasty.

Interesting Trivia Aside #1 (And Only): Jai-Alai - the lunatic variation of the Basque sport pelota - appeared in the opening credits of the TV series Miami Vice. A death among players was part of the plot of one episode, "Killshot", which aired during the 3rd season... So there.

Ahem, the video:

What a rare name I thought it was related to a religious sect or something like that, I'll have to listen that.
