Description

    As they approach their 30th anniversary, one of Australia's most loved and respected rock bands, The Screaming Jets, is gearing up for the release of a 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 long-time 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.
