The Bronx Release “Jack of All Trades” Limited-edition





Feb. 4, 2022, LOS ANGELES – The Bronx have released a limited-edition 7-inch for “Jack Of All Trades,” from the SoCal band’s critically-acclaimed album Bronx VI (Cooking Vinyl), featuring artwork and a capsules collection from revered Pitchfork/Drive Like Jehu musician and artist Rick Froberg.

Matt Caughthran says of the track: “This song is loosely based on the infamous ‘Logjammin’ scene in the Cohen brothers film, ‘The Big Lebowski.’ In the scene a European stud named Karl Hungus shows up to ‘fix the cable.’ ‘Jack of All Trades’ is a sonic Karl Hungus.”

As the band has done with each track from Bronx VI, when they have released the vinyl single, they’ve also unveiled a companion merch collection (, focusing on artists that have a strong artistic vision and a history with the band. For “Jack of All Trades” that’s legendary San Diegan, Rick Froberg – known for both his graphics and music with bands such as Pitchfork, Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes.

“Rick is an incredible musician, amazing artist, and total screwball.” adds Caughthran. “We have all been friends for a while now, and we are massive fans of everything he does. He absolutely crushed the artwork, it fits the song perfectly.”
