Chronicle : In 1996, Franck Ackermann and his brother Erwin recycled their popular Rock'n'Roll band to introduce a revised version. JAILBIRD was created. For this French group, a new era was born with the addition of machines and samplers. A few demo-tapes and numerous concerts later (with hits such as MASS HYSTERIA, DAS ICH, COLLAPSE, GODFLESH, FEAR FACTORY, to name a few) the two protagonists recorded their first album. For various reasons it would never reach the outside world.
In December 1999, Erwin is involved in a car crash making him quadriplegic. Without his brother, Franck decides to suspend the project for a while.
In July 2001, Franck makes arrangements with Oktobar Productions to promote the surviving JAILBIRD. A few months later, the band signs a contract with GESKA RECORDS. Their first album, Inside Nonsense, is released in a special collector's limited edition (May 2002) to please all the waiting fans. Today, JAILBIRD is renowned for its Romantic combination of Spiritual Rock, Poetry, and Machines. The JAILBIRD sound is a profound articulation of guitars and electronic frameworks. The presence of an effective rhythmic base with powerful vocals and guitars actively support the blows of a sonic crossover delivering the essential of Industrial Rock.
