The Jaded Hearts Club share new track ‘This Love Starved Heart Of Mine (It’s Killing Me)’ featuring Nic Cester on lead vocals. This lost Marvin Gaye song was originally recorded in 1967 a couple of months after ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ (which at the time was making Gaye a global star), but it wasn’t released from the vaults of Motown until 1994 almost 30 years later. Here The Jaded Hearts Club give it some renewed verve in a way only they can. In the bands words…
“As soon as I heard ‘This Love Starved Heart Of Mine’ I knew Nic Cester from Jet is one of the few people who could actually sing it. Nic’s vocal has that gut-wrenching on-pitch scream and raw charisma that provide the driving power needed. The track is like a runaway train – big, brassy, brash… a soul classic.” Jamie Davis
“Learning to sing a song like this and giving it the respect it deserves meant really studying it with microscopic detail and then trying to forget it all again. The ease at which Marvin navigates his way through all the phrasing is so unbelievably effortless – I loved looking at the work of someone that talented. You really recognize and appreciate the soul of the man.” Nic Cester
“We listened to hours and hours of songs from the Northern Soul/Motown period to choose the right 10 for an album – This perfectly sums up what we are trying to do as The Jaded Hearts Club – to shed light on some of the greatest lost songs ever written.” Matt Bellamy
The Jaded Hearts Club are a new band featuring frontmen Miles Kane (The Last Shadow Puppets) and Nic Cester(Jet), guitarists Graham Coxon (Blur) and Jamie Davis, plus Matt Bellamy (Muse) on bass and drummer Sean Payne (The Zutons). ‘This Love Starved Heart Of Mine (It’s Killing Me)’ is the second track the band have released following ‘Nobody But Me’ which had Miles Kane lending his raucous rock ‘n’ roll vocal on The Isley Brothers’ Northern Soul classic.
The band were formed in 2017 when Jamie Davis, a British guitarist living in Los Angeles who previously ran Coxon’s Transcopic Records label in England, wanted to book a Beatles covers band to play at his birthday party. The cost proved to be excessive and the available tribute acts were drab, so Davis had a back-up plan. “I realised I knew a bunch of half decent British musician friends living in L.A. so I thought I’d ask if they’d come together to form an early ‘60s Cavern-era Beatles band.”
They kept their plans a secret. So when family and friends turned up at the party, they were shocked to see an all-star band rampaging through a Cavern Club era Beatles set. “The place went nuts,”smiles Davis, “and everyone had such a good time that we decided to do it again.”
If their debut gig was a big surprise, their second raised the bar in dramatic fashion after Stella McCartney asked Bellamy if the band would play her fashion show in Los Angeles in January 2018. They arrived to see an A-list crowd gathered to see them: Quincy Jones, Katy Perry, James Corden and even Ringo Starr were in attendance. And then things took a turn for the unbelievable. Paul McCartney strolled on stage, winked at Davis and led the Hearts through ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ and‘ Helter Skelter’. In the space of just two gigs, The Beatles covers band had effectively become the surrogate Beatles.
