Released 27th July 2018 – Pre-Order Now!
The Screaming Jets are well known for their knack to take a classic song and make it their own… think Roland Howard’s “Shivers”, think Barry MacGuire’s “Eve of Destruction”, think Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues”, think Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In the Free World”. How many times have you seen The Jets send a room full of sweat drenched fans into musical rapture on hearing the first 3 chords of one of these or many other covers they’ve adopted as their own over the years?!
In typical maverick style, the boys have taken it to the next level with an album of covers from a legendary line-up of Australian artists that, have in some way, over 3 decades influenced the band’s illustrious and sometimes chequered rock odyssey.
The 8th full-length album from The Jets “Gotcha Covered“, their second LP to be released through Dinner For Wolves, was largely inspired by favored radio hits of the last 50+ years and songs that evoke nostalgic reference to the past. Nearly 30 years into their musical journey, with “Gotcha Covered“, The Screaming Jets salute an eclectic collection of Aussie artists with their own trademark interpretation of songs from The Easy Beats, Men At Work, Paul Kelly to the Angels, You Am I, Hoodoo Gurus, INXS and AC/DC.. just to name a few.
