Flat Duo Jets "Wild Wild Love" 2-CD Set

The full-length album by the roots-rock landmark Flat Duo Jets, originally released on Dog Gone Records in 1990, is back and is now expanded on a two-CD set entitled Wild Wild Love.

Singer/guitarist Dexter Romweber and drummer Chris Crow Smith were still teenagers when they formed Flat Duo Jets in Chapel Hill in 1984. Inspired in equal measure by the Cramps haunted rockabilly and vintage drive-in horror movies, they cooked up a metallic version of rockabilly that sounded as if it had been launched into the deepest quadrants of the astral plane.

The Jets spent just enough time in Athens, GA to appear in 1987 documentary Athens, GA: Inside/Out before they expanded to a trio lineup and connected with producer Mark Bingham to record Flat Duo Jets, an album that still sounds just as powerful today. "No overdubs, no nothin, just straight to tape like it was 1957", Bingham says of the recording sessions.
