Comprised of core members Sean Bonnette (acoustic guitar) and Ben Gallaty (upright bass), Andrew Jackson Jihad is a folk-punk outfit from Phoenix, AZ. The Jihad formed in 2004, when frontman Bonnette was still a teenager, and the duo quickly began writing humorously explicit music with macabre themes. Early topics ran the gamut from self-sacrifice to childhood drug addiction, all sung in a frantic manner with acoustic instrumentation. A number of self-released demos and EPs attracted the attention of Plan-It-X Records, which issued a split release with Andrew Jackson Jihad and the similarly styled Ghost Mice in 2007. On September 11th of the same year, Asian Man Records released the Jihad’s first full-length album, People That Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World.
