I heard just the opposite about Nebraska. Story was he turned in the demos and the label said "it won't get any better" so they put it out with out recording with a full band. Could ba a crap story but Nebraska's my favorite for sure.
Oh man that's good news they made it safe. Just went through an ordeal with FedEx because they destroyed one of those badass tubes we use. Glad you dig them too they were good sized and we had a good print run that day. Few mistakes which is always sweet.
Flat Duo Jets are badass. Two guys, Guitar and Drums. Sometimes three with a standup bass. Drummer played standing up when I saw them open for the Cramps. A snare, a cymbal and a kick was all he had. Real gritty blues/rock/50's sounding stuff. Dexter Romwebber is an awesome guitar player. Of course their first record is the best. Everyone should have it. Are they still around?
