Saturday 19 January: The Screaming Jets with Support

As they approach their 30th anniversary, one of Australia’s most loved and respected rock bands, The Screaming Jets, are gearing up to celebrate the success of their very special record – GOTCHA COVERED

GOTCHA COVERED , the eighth full-length album from The Jets, was largely inspired by the band’s favourite radio hits of the last 50+ years, and songs that evoke nostalgic reference to the past. The Screaming Jets salute an eclectic collection of Aussie artists with their own trademark interpretation of songs from The Easybeats, Men At Work, Paul Kelly, The Angels, You Am I, Hoodoo Gurus, INXS and AC/DC, just to name a few.

The Screaming Jets are well known for their ability to take a classic song and make it their own … think Roland Howard’s “Shivers”, Barry MacGuire’s “Eve of Destruction”, Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues”, Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In the Free World” … they’ve adopted these songs 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 three decades, influenced the band’s illustrious rock odyssey.

Produced by longtime collaborator Steve James (All For One, Living in England EP, Tear of Thought, World Gone Crazy and the band’s most recent release from 2016, Chrome), the selection of tracks were recorded raw and live at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne earlier in the year.   What came out of the studio was a collection of 15 iconic Aussie songs spanning the mid 1960’s to late 1990’s, paying homage to a cross-section of Australian music history.

Singer and front man Dave Gleeson muses, “What we came up with was a great Aussie party album. Covering songs that have shaped us; songs from our youth; songs that have been written and performed by contemporaries and songs that will make even the most loyal fan go “what the” … I can’t wait to get out with the boys and belt these songs out with the rest of Australia…”

The closing track of GOTCHA COVERED, ‘Guitar Band’, features 16 of Australia’s finest guitar players (not including Jets players Scott Kingman and Jimi Hocking) contributing to what has become an epic version of Stevie Wright’s 1974 classic. Turning the 3min 21sec original song into a 14 min 21 sec musical behemoth, as The Jets’ Paul Woseen says, “Guitar Band turned into our own Guitarmageddon, featuring solos from solos from some of Australia’s finest guitar players.” 

The guesting shredders include Rick Brewster (The Angels), Nat Allison (Suzi Quatro), Tim Henwood (SuperJesus/ Palace Of The King), Cam McKenzie (Horsehead/ Mark Seymour band), Bob Spencer (The Angels/ Rose Tattoo), Dave Leslie (Baby Animals), Brett Kingman (James Reyne), Brett Williams (the Choirboys), Warwick Scott (Skunkhour), Ronnie Simmons (Richie Ramone), Danny Spencer (Jimmy Barnes/ Richard Clapton), Chris Hawker (Taxiride), Pete Wanno (Suzi Quatro/ Josie Jason), Stuart Fraser (Noiseworks/ John Farnham), Stu Marshall (Empires Of Eden) and Zakk Zedras (Chocolate Starfish).

As the sun sets on our beautiful harbour & the lights of the city start to sparkle we will enjoy a short drive which will take in not just the colour but all the hustle and bustle on the streets as Sydney prepares for Christmas. Highlights will be the tree in Martin Place, the Town Hall and David Jones displays. We then take in other areas on our return, who participate each year to ‘light up’ their homes in a mass of colour - their gift to Sydney.
