Playing their distinctive brand of reverb drenched garage, Jet Trash was named one of San Francisco's best up and coming bands of 2014 by Deli Magazine. Combining vintage sounds of Sixties Pop, Surf, and Lo-Fi with a modern D.I.Y. aesthetic, Jet Trash has begun to attract a fervent crowd in the City of Fog. “There’s about a million garage bands running around San Francisco these days, which makes it really difficult to separate the cream from the crop at times. Luckily, San Francisco’s Jet Trash somehow showed some promise and rose to the top of the mountain.” says Russell Jelinik, editor of The Bay Bridged. With spirited live performances throughout the Bay Area, Jet Trash has quickly generated a buzz culminating with a performance at this year’s Noise Pop festival in San Francisco.

The group was spawned from their desire to re-create raw & wild sounds like legendary west coast stalwarts The Sonics. Keith Shughrou (lead guitar) and Paul Kemp (rhythm guitar & vocals) provide a lively twin guitar attack that at times feels like a tidal wave crashing down on the beach. Marshall Fassino (bass & vocals) and Robby Justesen (drums) smooth out the sands beneath with their solid and infectious rhythm section grooves, all the while the vocals striking a perfect balance between sweet and razor-sharp.

After posting a handful of self-recorded demos online, Jet Trash caught the attention of veteran producer and engineer Andy Freeman (Eisley, Max Bemis of Say Anything) who was impressed with their unabashed use of melody and pop hooks. “They have well crafted songs; a lot of strong musical themes which I don’t typically hear in many garage acts.” Soon, the band and Freeman found themselves encamped at San Francisco’s legendary Coast Recorders. The result is a debut EP both unique in its approach to retro rock and decidedly confident as a first artistic statement, one that the band plans to take on the road for their first West Coast tour this summer in support of the new record.
