Jet : Sydney Club '77
Now they're just about whatever you want them to be - there's guttural AC/DC howling on 'Cold Hard Bitch', barking garage rock with 'Take It Or Leave It' and raw-knuckled Kinks-isms on 'Get What You Need'. Even alt.country gets a look-in with 'Move On' before cherubic second guitarist Nic takes the mic for 'Are You Gonna' attacking a riff lifted straight from Iggy Pop's 'Lust For Life'.
Add a dash of Aerosmith, a singing drummer and a malevolent cover of Elvis' 'That's Alright' and we're certainly looking at something quite frightening here.
Genius, really. Jet are the sound of a monster truck dragging Gaz Coombes face-down through the mud with Ryan Adams strapped to the roof and Angus Young behind the wheel, and it is good. Not complicated. Not clever. Just pure rock'n'roll.
