Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday March 21st, 2018 with Reactionary Renny
Something current but well rooted: The FLAT DUO JETS. Double fisted, bare knuckled Rock & Roll from a Sear's Silvertone guitar and a set of drums. Named after Gene Vincent's guitar, the Flat Duo Jets are the best two man band in the Whamma Blamma genre.

Renny, I was listening, but through the stereo, on headphones, not online. Thanks for reminding me how great the FDJs are. Another highly entertaining show!
