Jetscreamer – Starhead

The latest back-to-basics US rock”n” rollers to enchant the UK press, Texan band Jetscreamer recorded this turbulent debut without overdubs, Pro Tools or any such new-fangled technological gubbins. The result is a good ol’ punk-blues racket, though their greasy slide-guitar thrash is nothing new. The Flamin’ Groovies mastered this back in the ’70s, as did The Janitors (remember them?) in the ’80s. And when they opt for crash’n’ burn improvisations, Jetscreamer become nothing more than Sonic Youth by numbers. More Boeing 747 than Concorde, then, but entertaining in its raw power.
