Andrew Jackson Jihad is a truly unique band in a pool of punk-rock mediocrity. Their lyrics often touch on more taboo “Americana” issues like serial killers, cigarette smoking and religion. While the band is only comprised of two members, Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty, a revolving door of guest performances both live and recorded lend itself to the group’s one-of-a-kind sound and attitude. Besides the standard drums and acoustic guitar, AJJ utilizes instruments such as the mandolin, banjo and kazoo. And I mean, who doesn’t love a kazoo?
