International Jetsetters are a five piece out of Oxford in sunny England. The line-up currently consists of Mark Crozer, Bert Audubert, Loz Colbert, Paul Crozer and is nicely rounded off with the dulcet tones of Fi McFall (who, according to their bio on the Planting Seeds Records website, was discovered when the Jesus and Mary Chain needed a female singer to perform Just Like Honey at their 2007 Brixton Academy gig. You have a listen; they made a good choice with that one.
The tunes are beautiful, calming, tasteful, but also guitar-heavy, strong and thick with sound. Not really tunes to be bopping around the loungeroom to. Although Inside Out is getting close! More fitting to be listening to whilst having a quiet one up the pub with a few friends. Basically, if you like the Jesus and Mary Chain, but would rather listen to lyrics that are not quite so depressing (watch out the title track Heart is Black is on it's way to depressing), International Jetsetters are for you!
Feel like dancing?
I do, but I'm off North tomorrow...but you can still go out! If you live in Sydney that is.
Loaded at Madame De Biers in Kings Cross are having a christmas party this Wednesday (yes, it's Christmas Eve and you'd probably not get home until after Santa had been). I've always had a soft spot for Loaded. Back when it was on Fridays at the oh-so-seedy Kings Cross Hotel to its new location just up the street. Go check it out and report back to me, okay?
Tonight! Britpop at the Abercrombie Hotel is also having a Christmas party. All the cheesy Britpop you want (unless you ask them to play Dodgy)...with $10 jugs of coopers...yum yum.
Oh! I just wanna go out now! :(
Have a good one anyway!
