The Jackal - Underneath the Arches

I was going to write "Here's another source record from the Heavy Duty Breaks megamix LP," but it actually isn't, and it's not even on the same label (Criminal Damage instead of Illuminated). The Jackal's mix of sampled and electronic breakbeats with sampled vocal fragments and crunchy guitars would fit right in, though, and it came out around the same time (1986), hence my confusion. So if you liked Heavy Duty Breaks, download this small set (just two tracks, "Underneath the Arches" and "Thunder Machine", nine minutes total) here or here. As with my previous post, the artist is a cipher, real identity unknown, any clues supplied in the comments will be appreciated.

The Jackal "Underneath the Arches" is by Karl Bonnie before he joined up with Gary Asquith & Danny Briottet and became RSW.

ok do you doubt that,Saul Pumphrey & Kim pooley,formerly Vernon & Ruby from the Orson Family was on this record.Because it is a fact i used to be friends with them back in the day.It was recorded in kim's house at a home studio.

I had no idea the identity of The Jackal was so contentious... Could it be that it was "Vernon and Ruby Orson" and Karl Bonnie?

I was the one making the orson family post,that could well be the case.

I think it is just Bonnie. The cover picture looks like Carl Bonnie. (why no picture of danny or gary?).

Also the sleeve artist "Dave Little" did most of the sleeve artwork for RSW.

t's Karl's record he did on his own which got him the deal with Rhythm King then he brought Danny and Gary in and they form RSW then they swapped to Mute because Gary and Danny were such nightmares that Martin Heath couldn't stand them!!! Dave Little was Karl's mate to begin with.. Take it from someone at the label then!!
