A Tribute to Jet

It’s a sad day, Jet has officially broken up after 11 years of performing. Coming to the fold with the classic LP Get Born which to this day maintains the record for highest selling debut album in Australia they went on to sell more than 6 million cds worldwide. They were part of an avant-garde grunge rock scene of the ilk of The Vines and The Hives providing a feel good rock pop to the general public. Those were days when shopping centres blasted out rock hits rather than the RnB of today. It might seem an over elaboration but Jet were in a sense pioneers bringing back distorted guitars to the mainstream and providing the framework for the current Grunge scene of today such as DZ Deathrays and Violent Soho. Thanks for the good times Jet.

From their Facebook page;

“A Message To Our Fans: After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group. From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight.”
