Just Jinger – All Comes Round

Just Jinger were one of the biggest bands in SA during the late 90’s, early 00’s. Known for dynamic live shows and grungy rock tunes, ‘Baby Song’ which appeared on their debut album ‘All Comes Round’ starts off a little at odds with what one would expect. There is a funky jazzy feel to the song as the bass sort of shimmies over gently brushed drums while the guitar plucks out an almost reggae beat. A piano plunks along with Art Matthew’s gentle vocals, and you are wondering if this is really a Just Jinger track.

But then the chorus comes and the guitar starts to roar, Art start to growl and soar while the drums pound in that sort of laid back grunge style one associated with the Jingers. Looking back, it is becomes quite clear why Just Jinger went on to become so big. This is was a very strong track to feature on a debut album.
