Drawing A Line In The Sand

Jetpack
Planet Reverb
2000

 


Jetpack is the surf instrumental brainchild of guitarist Daniel J. This disc is steeped in the twangy sound of fender guitars and vibrato effects but not limited to it. Mandolin, fretless bass, theremin, and an unmistakable Police influence all coexist here. Produced for Pascal Records by David Pascal who also produced the similar-sounding Blue Hawaiians. Twelve originals are included with interesting cover versions of the Hollies "Bus Stop" and Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence."

Live At The Lava Lounge was awesome (although I wasn't expecting to hear vocals. Yes, on a live album :) and I found about it here. I hope this is as good!
