Richard Jankovich founded his first nationally recognized act Burnside Project in 2000 in New York City.
Their 2003 synth-pop release "The Networks, The Circuits, The Streams, The Harmonies” (Bar-None/Sony) received high praise (A- in SPIN, Rolling Stone’s “Hot List”) and was nominated by filmmaker Cameron Crowe for a Shortlist award. Their signature electro-pop track, “Cue the Pulse to Begin,” was the theme for Showtime’s "Queer as Folk" and became a top 40 hit in Japan.
In 2006, Jankovich started producing under the nom-de-plume “Pocket” and had a run of remixes for the likes of Radiohead, Beck, Of Montreal, Joanna Newsom, Cults, Antony & The Johnsons and more, all to critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, NY Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan and more. In 2012, Pocket released "All Of This Happened (Tirk)" a collaborative album whose guest vocalists comprise a who’s-who of New Wave and Alternative veterans including Robyn Hitchcock, Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think), Steve Kilbey (The Church), Tanya Donelly (Belly) and more.
Mon Draggor is Jankovich’s new recording project designed to connect his previous work with the impending arrival of a daughter. The first collection, titled “Pushing Buttons” is rooted in modern pop and dance music, with songs written for the next generation to come. Some tracks warn of the potential for self absorption of a generation reared on smart phones and social networks while others offer advice on how tomorrow’s leaders can overcome Generation X’s failings. Overall, “Pushing Buttons” offers inspiration to tomorrow’s leaders over a bed of synth-pop melodies, EMD beats and soaring vocals. The second collection, “Pulling Strings”, is an organic affair reflecting on his own life and that of his generation. Written primarily on acoustic guitar or piano and featuring subtle, limited production, these songs offer a glimpse into Jankovich’s view of his life and speak directly to the experiences of a Gen-Xer approaching 40.
