JAB


JAB

JAB was an Australian punk rock band formed in Adelaide in 1976, with Bohdan X (often referred to simply as Bohdan) on guitar and vocals; Ash Wednesday playing bass guitar, synthesizer and tapes, and; Johnny Crash (Janis Friedenfelds) on drums and vocals. Bohdan was also the songwriter of the group, which took its name from the first initials of the founder members. They began as an experimental rock band, but adopted a punk style in 1977. They are regarded as the first Australian group to marry electronica and a hard-edged guitar sound.

Bohdan recorded a solo single in late 1977, and the band relocated to Melbourne in August, joining the punk scene there and frequently playing live. Bob Stopa was recruited as a second guitarist and bassist Pierre Voltaire (Peter Sutcliffe) also joined (so that Wednesday could concentrate on keyboards). JAB signed to Suicide Records in January 1978, and two of their songs, "Blonde and Bombed" and "Let's Go" were included on the "Lethal Weapons" compilation album. The band broke up in August 1978. Wednesday and Crash joined the first line-up of The Models and Bohdan became a broadcaster.
