Riot In Cell Block NC: 1st Flat Duo Jets Recordings Reissued


Dexter, Crow, and even Tone raving things up for your edification.

Finally arriving on the heels this week (Oct. 20), of that outrageously cool Wild Wild Love vinyl box set from NC’s legendary Flat Duo Jets, released by Daniel 13 for Record Store Day 2017,  is the 2CD version for the, er, less obsessive Dex Romweber fan. But no less discriminating—this ‘un  has all 13 original Flat Duo Jets tracks, including “Wild Wild Love,” which they played in a career-making 1990 performance on Late Night With David Letterman; plus all six tracks from the 1984 cassette-only mini-album (In Stereo). CD Two adds a baker’s-dozen outtakes from recording sessions hand picked by the band’s original producer, Mark Bingham.

As an added bonus, the Wild Wild Love CD package also includes a link to download a 78-page digital PDF booklet filled with vintage show flyers and photographs, plus liner-note essays by Mark Bingham, Josh Grier and music critic David Menconi. The booklet was originally a centerpiece of the aforementioned limited edition vinyl box, which of course went out of print pretty much original.
