The Jook - Rule O.K. - Booklet

After the breakup of John's Children, Hewlett went to work for Apple in the publishing division. Then, when Apple started falling apart, he went into management with Gallagher & Lyle and later McGuiness Flint. He soon lost interest working with all these singer songwriters and it wasn't really the sort of music he liked.

So Jook was a conscious attempt to get back to he really wanted.

And that's what Jook was about: a 70's John's Children, complete with futuristic Mod clothes. They made 5 45's in a year, powerful records with Slade-like production, teen rebellion lyrics and Townshend-styled guitar.

Some of the songs were great, from the debut "Alright With Me" to the tremendous flip side of their last single "Crazy Kids" (later remade by Trevor White, both versions are among the all-time classic teenage anthems).

As it was, the records were relative flops, and White left with lan Hampton to join the Sparks Propaganda band after Martin Gordon (Radio Stars was fired. Gordon in turn got together with Peter Oxendale, Sparks session key-boardist, and formed Jet with Andy Ellison, Chris Townson and David O'List from the Nice.

A few years later, John Hewlett with Joseph Fleury made a production company "J-J", the first "J-J"  releases were  Milk 'n' Cookies, Earle Mankey (former Sparks and famous producer),  the Mumps (led by Kristian Hoffman  who would record an Earle Mankey produced duet with Russell Mael in 2002) and a 4-song Jook EP  of unreleased stuff.

The complete Jook singles have never been re-issued to this day on CD.

I did a transfer from my singles to cd-r in 2005 (with SoundForge 7.0), and i revamped the original sleeve in order to get the pictures you can see
