“WHEN YOU THINK about the LA rock scene from the mid eighties there were a lot of winners (Guns N’Roses, Poison, Motley Crue) and a heck of a lot of losers. However, in a strange alternative universe, many of the also ran’s were more revered than the pantheon of heavy hitters. Take Jet Boy for instance, one of the most revered acts on the scene who, through no fault of their own, were lost to obscurity yet attracted a devoted and passionate fan following.
Formed initially in San Francisco, the band, like so many others, soon gravitated to Los Angeles where they cemented their line up, including former Hanoi Rocks bassist Sam Yaffa, and rubbed shoulders with other hopefuls in a scene that was rapidly exploding. In late 1986 they signed a coveted record deal with Elektra Records and set about recording their debut album with British producer Tom Allom (Judas Priest, Def Leppard and Krokus etc). However once the record was completed disaster struck when Elektra reshaped their roster and cast the band adrift
Fortunately MCA Records snapped up the band issuing ‘Feel The Shake’ in 1988. Informed by the sounds of the Rolling Stones, The CULT, Guns ‘N’ Roses and, most succinctly, Hanoi Rocks, the record won much acclaim but failed to connect commercially. Songs such as ‘Bad Disease’, ‘Fire In My Heart’, ‘Snake Bite’ and the title track, lodge them in the top echelon of low slung guitar mavericks.”
