Originally released in 2008 by Chapter Music, this is the second full-length album by Adelaide trio Hit The Jackpot, who play simple, noisy pop songs, swapping instruments and sharing vocals. They believe that enthusiasm and sincerity are more important than technical proficiency, and take inspiration from the likes of Beat Happening, Dinosaur Jr. and The Clean. The ten tracks on the album were recorded in the second half of 2007 at the band's own home studio. Hit The Jackpot formed as a two-piece in early 2003, comprising young couple Jess Thomas and Kynan Lawlor. With a sparse but dynamic line-up of drums and guitar, they played just a handful of shows before supporting Sonic Youth on their 2004 Australian tour. They released a self-titled EP around the same time, which ended up in the #3 spot on Adelaide radio station 3D's "Top 100 For 2004." Hit The Jackpot were joined by Sebastien Calabretto (and a bass guitar) in 2005 and released their debut album Clowns in 2006. With Seb leaving for the grey shores of England early in 2008, Hit The Jackpot recruited Scott O'Hara (Lindsey Lowhand, True Radical Miracle). In this formation, Soul Money Gang Vibe is a sparse, yet often heavy swathe of noisy, feedbacked guitar scrawl and jangle, My Bloody Valentine moodiness, and off-kilter male/female vocal harmonics.
