    Flat Duo Jets
    Wild Wild Love 2CD

    Wild Wild Love is a double-disc reissue and rarities collection by Flat Duo Jets
    For more than three decades, Flat Duo Jets have been an American undergrounds music secret, as hugely musically influential as they are obscure to the broader mainstream.
    Much of the Jets reputation is based on their first full length album, the landmark Flat Duo Jets LP originally released on Dog Gone Records in 1990.
    It finally comes back into circulation as part of this superb two-CD set.
    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 crazed version of rockabilly that sounded as if it had been launched into the deepest quadrants of the astral plane.
    The combination of Romwebers wild-eyed rockabilly howl, madman surf guitar and Crows pulverizing runaway-train drums made for a stage show that blew minds all over the college-radio circuit.
    They expanded to a trio 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.
    Disc One of Wild Wild Love has all 14 Flat Duo Jets album tracks, plus all six tracks from the 1984 cassette-only mini-album In Stereo.
    Disc Two is a collector's dream, presenting the outtakes from these sessions.
