AA Loves: Flat Duo Jets

Nothing like a bit of Flat Duo Jets to get the day started right.

Reeking of rockabilly, early rock ‘n’ roll, and pent-up anxiety, Dexter Romweber is passionate guitar malevolence incarnate. As an early pioneer of the thunderous guitar/drum attack, the Flat Duo Jets have proven to be major influences for the White Stripes, Black Keys, and countless other bands.

Listen to “Crazy Hazy Kisses” and “Frog Went A Courtin'” and understand why parents in the 50s were so afeared of rock ‘n’ roll. With Romweber’s raw emotions surging forth like tidal wave, the band’s dangerous diesel-soaked sound is a stark reminder of why rock was once the “devil’s music.”
