Jab Jab Suckerpunch boasts personnel that will be familiar names for longtime Little Rock party survivors: Brett McKnight and Brian Hirrel were in the notorious '90s quartet Big Boss Line, known far and wide for eardrum- and liver-destroying rock 'n' roll fortitude and still talked about for their chaotic, tomato-covered live shows and ubiquitous band T shirts sporting the message: "Legalize Heroin and Murder." Bassist Brian Rodgers was in the long-running postpunk stalwarts The Moving Front and drummer Ryan Scott served in the ranks of Ashtray Babyhead and The Kicks.

Note: Jab Jab Suckerpunch has not yet made any recordings.
