ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SparkleJet is the tried and true, all-American rock band. Born in the unlikely agricultural hub of Central California, the Fresno-based group holds true to its rock n roll roots, playing music the way it should be played: 100 percent pretension free. SparkleJet has settled into a stripped-down, power-trio lineup where they find themselves at the height of their ability to convey uncompromising power and urgency. The band bounces effortlessly across the rock landscape, drawing from the likes of past and current heroes including The Replacements, Pixies, Hüsker Dü, The Kinks, Guided By Voices, The Police, Foo Fighters, Devo, Led Zeppelin, and The Who. Speaking of Townshend and the boys, SparkleJet performed its own rendition of The Who's 'Tommy' back in 2002. SparkleJets 11-track album, Beyond the Beyond, has been released on Los Angeles-based Long Live Crime Records. Two of the trios earlier releases 1998s This Years Model & 2001s Bar Guest will be distributed through the indie label this spring. For their new album 'Beyond the Beyond', SparkleJet strayed from the usual Fresno recording studios. Instead, the band decided to work with Steve Albini (Pixies, Nirvana, PJ Harvey) at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago. SparkleJet has toured throughout the Northwest, having shared the stage with bands like Kaito, Silversun Pickups, Earlimart, the Mother Hips, Radar Bros., Pine Martin, the High Speed Scene and more. The trio has been featured in Billboard magazine's Best New Artist spotlight, and their music has been used on ESPNs Extreme Games. They have not taken a contrived, anti-social punk rock stance or infused their music with any such self-defeating message. Simply put, they don't try to be anything except who they are by nature. No trendy clothes, no fancy haircuts, just rock.
