Discovery II: Jack Bowden - "Arsonist"


It takes creativity and talent to learn how to write like Kent based musician Jack Bowden. Without trying to sound too respectful, Bowden's song writing skills are next to none for the subject matter. Flicking through his repertoire of songs, I noticed Bowden has a sincere sense of humour, with his writing clearly directed at a generation of mod-pop noughties and nineties kids. Everyone and their mum can safely listen to and follow Ed Sheeran on Twitter; but Jan down the road won't be listening to Bowden no matter what status of elevation he achieves - and that's down to his song-writing, and coincidentally his musical style.


There's something about Kent musicians, Deal specifically, that excels in song-writing and musical ability. I don't have to look far back to Will Varley's very warm and intimate unscheduled gig at the Cambridge Folk Festival campsite at 1am to remember just how excellent Deal musicians can be. With the Smugglers Records collective like Varley and Cocos Lovers; there's this sense of disbelief about the quality of music available down there.

Bowden excels in the double entendre; it’s his go to weapon on "Arsonist". Many of his songs follow suit, but specifically "Arsonist" with its morbid atmosphere and sorrowful lyrics. Here listeners are exposed to some of Bowden's best features, a soulful, youthful voice, skilled acoustic guitar playing, and a big fat sheet of lyrics designed to unleash all the question marks in the listeners head. It's very intelligently created, the same can be said about the budget video which like Bowden, surprises in it' simplistic beautiful meaning.

  1. The Origina Replica Breitling claimed the bubble as a potential source of weakness that they were finally able to overcome with technology. Well, heading back to the late 1960’s and the high-end?,Rolex Submarine the brand took a page from the contemporary Detroit era of cars – as in, there’s no cure for cubic inches. In 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches case, though, they mounted what now looks like an absolutely insane crystal that’s now known to Tag Heuer Watches?collectors as a “Top Hat”.He sent lots of pictures along the way to show the innards of the?Omega Watches , including the Hermes handbags correctly signed inside case back.

  2. When I took possession of the Rolex Submariner,a couple things jumped out at me. First, and this is always nice to find, it had its original Origina Replica Breitling Twinlock crown (Triplocks came later at around the 3M serial number). So many 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches have lost their original crowns to Triplocks along the way,In a weird twist of irony, the Omega Watches Robert-Jan wrote about from this year’s Baselworld contained a Cyclops for the first time in its history. Hermes handbags , in its self-pronounced desire to push innovation, claimed that it was the first time it was able to produce such a deeply rated Tag Heuer Watches with a Cyclops.
