Discography of Jacko (4):

# Release title Total tracks Type of release is Imprint date Label
1 I'm An Individual 2 Audio 1985 Raw Prawn


A former Australian Rules footballer who used his fame and popularity to launch a singing career in the 1980s. His first hit "I'm An Individual" went to number 1 on the Australian singles chart, while his second hit "Phantom, Ghost Who Walks (Cannot Drive)" was also a top 10 hit. Jacko's songs combined rap-like lyrics with Australian comedy and larrikinism.

After his singing career failed, Jacko went into advertising. The most successful was his role in the Energizer battery ads, from which Jacko became known for his catchphrase "Oi!" There was even a 10 in 1 "Oi! Jacko Gym" action figure toy that could talk, do push ups, lift weights and ride a skateboard.

Most recently Jacko embarked on a tour with author and renowned criminal Mark “Chopper” Read in 2005.
