Today’s song is “Ghost in the Machine” by Jack and the Dull Boy. The Seattle, WA group consists of Devon Summers (songwriter, guitarist, vocals) and Aaron Nicholes (drummer).

Seventeen years ago, Devon Summers somehow managed to trick virtuoso drummer Aaron Nicholes into joining forces for the now-defunct punk/metal outfit Scorpiknox. Since then, they’ve remained close pals even after taking separate paths in both the Chicago and Seattle underground rock scenes.

Aaron Nicholes has toured in support of KMFDM with the band Legion Within, earned an AVN nomination for the best score of a feature film (starring Dita von Teese), and has performed live at both Bumbershoot and the Capitol Hill Block Party. By contrast, Devon Summers is proficient in both MS Word and Excel and has excellent communication skills as well as uncommon attention to detail. When the duo recently found themselves back in the rehearsal space together, mostly as an excuse to drink beer, Jack and the Dull Boy was born.

The duo has a sound that meets at the intersection of hard rock, heavy metal, and progressive rock. This track is off their debut release, Failure in Three Parts. This song features some raging guitars but is not too heavy for those who may not be so into metal. This track has a mainstream feel but still can rock.
