JET

JET

So convinced are Elektra that ultra-grizzly rockers Jet are the future of rock, they've decided to re-release the debut a whopping 6 months after it's original release. Limited edition of course. Time for an update...

13/03/2004

They’ve already been the new Oasis, the new Stones, and drawn comparisons with more bands than people have record collections. They wear their influences on their sleeve, their hearts at the bottom of a bottle and have got enough machismo to believe they can fill the mantle of some of rocks older contemporaries. And why not? Debut album ‘Get Born’ has hit a million sales worldwide, and of the current crop of Aussie/Kiwi exports, they seem to have given obscurity that no one knows it’s last whereabouts. The Datsuns went into hiding after their shimmying, tight trousered, self titled debut and The D4’s garage rock got them well, no one really knows where. Probably hiding out with obscurity. With recording due to start in September on their second album, 2004 is looking just as much of a smooth ride as 2003.

Not many bands can claim touring with the Rolling Stones before playing the Barfly. Yes in that order. So via Belgium and a boat, an intimate acoustic showcase at the Oxford Street Virgin Megastore, that is fast becoming a mecca for these mini live events. Didn’t the Stones play there once....?

After discussing the finer points of film with Chris and Cam, notably Kirsten Dunst upside down in the rain throughout, Chris playing the bad guy himself, Daniel Day-Lewis being hired to fix Cam’s shoes, and a mutual admiration for Scarlet Johansson, but not in the conventional sense. An impromptu duet and probably some Dutch courage, Jet take to the stage, relaxed and all smiles. Chris, a reincarnation of The Muppets drummer Animal, is the all singing, all drumming, blue-eyed boy from the back. In a set that sees them work through ‘Look What You’ve Done’, ‘Move On’ and ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’, it’s probably as about as polite and unassuming as you’ll ever see them. For a band who pride themselves on being live and loud they show that they can do rock n roll soul.

As Mark confesses, on behalf of the band, to ‘never doing an acoustic show like this before - so it could be really shit’, is pretty of the mark. It was a gig with no posturing, a sense of fun but lacking the ‘fuck em’ attitude that ultimately led to it lacking a punch. Hello. Sensitivity? Was that you creeping out of the hard-nosed rock n roll exterior? Keith Richards would be turning in his grave, if he ever fucking gets there that is. They may still be a one trick rock n roll pony, but maybe this one can be taught to roll over as well.

'Get Born' - Limited Edition + DVD is set for release on March 15, 2004 .
