Jacque Le Coque premieres Back To The Future meets The Strokes debut song and video


‘Back To The Gaff (No Time To Explain’ is the debut song from Jacque le Coque, aka: Jack Hitchcock, who you may know from the band Really Good Time.

His debut track arrives burning rubber into the future with Strokes-esque melodies and psych-rock guitar and a brilliant high-quality Back To The Future-themed video by Dave Fox.

The song is out tomorrow officially but here’s an exclusive look at the excellent video

“Back To The Gaff (no time to explain)” is about the aftermath of a long night out, regaining consciousness after one after-session too many. The song begins upbeat and driving as we follow Le Cocque on the way home in the early hours of the morning. As he arrives home and starts to come-down, the song shifts gears into a darker, psyched-out space. Lying on his bed, we spiral out of control with him in all the fear and self-loathing, bringing the song to an uncontrollable panic-attack crescendo. 

The song was written by Hitchcock, co-produced by Adrian Garvey (also on drums), and mixed by Wastefellow, both of REALLY GOOD TIME.

The director Dave Fox says:

“The name of the song sparked an immediate link to an 80’s blockbusters and it sort of spiralled from there. We filled it with loads of references, some are very obvious, others are less so. 

It’s a very silly idea, but we wanted to execute to a really high level and make a fun, energetic piece to match the energy of the song, none of which would have been achieved without the many talented people across cast and crew that lent us their time and talent.”
