I have recently learned that Jake, who started playing solo, in 2010 formed his own band - The Rubiks. They performed at the local indie scene at "The Maze" Club in Nottingham.

@ladybugg - Thanks for the news xoxo
I've seen some videos with Jake on youtube with those guys but I haven't known that The Rubiks was a band formed by him because he has never mentioned about them in any interview, right?

Here's the videos which I had in my mind:

-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2YPW3uscRk
-> Cold Case - The Rubiks

What we know about Jake - Some facts and short biography:

Jake Bugg (born Jacob Edwin Kennedy, 28 February 1994) is an English singer-songwriter. His self-titled debut album, largely co-written with songwriters Iain Archer, Matt Prime and Crispin Hunt, was released in late 2012.

Early Life
Bugg was born in Nottingham, to musical parents who separated when he was young. His father, whose name was Bugg, was a nurse and his mother worked in sales, both having previously made recordings. He grew up in the Clifton council estate of Nottingham and started playing guitar at the age of 12 after being introduced to the instrument by his uncle Mark.

He also states that his formative musical moment was hearing Don McLean’s "Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" on an episode of The Simpsons. He was enrolled in a music technology course, but by the age of 16 he had dropped out and was writing and performing his own songs influenced by The Beatles, Layne Staley, Johnny Cash, Donovan, The Everly Brothers and Jimi Hendrix.

Bugg was chosen by the BBC to appear on their "Introducing" stage at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival aged 17, and because of this was given a contract by Mercury Records. His songs were then placed on various BBC Radio play lists and one of them, "Country Song", was used in a national TV beer commercial for Greene King IPA.
