Fed up with the constant stream of pop punk dirge? Looking for something a little bit cerebral but retaining a high level of energy? Then Jet Motor Crash may be the answer. Formed from the ashes of L.A outfit Pruno, Jet Motor Crash have an enviable talent for combining punk with alternative rock and classic metal. Think AFI jamming Hoobastank songs with Judas Priest and you won’t be far off. ‘Personal Space’ is the band’s second album and should see the band making major strides toward inevitable mainstream popularity. ‘Nothing Left’-essentially an AOR anthem for 2004-shows the obvious ability of the band to pen a Billboard smash, whilst ‘1986’ is a nostalgia trip back to a time when twin lead guitars ruled the roost. Several songs have been re-recorded from the debut including, ‘I Don’t Belong’, ‘Powder Keg’, two modern rock masterpieces together with the curiously Coney Hatch sounding ‘Still’. Elsewhere a rousing cover of the Loverboy classic ‘Working For The Weekend’ shows that any genre is fair game for Jet Motor Crash as long as it’s done with flair and self belief; two characteristics that this band have in huge abundance.
