JET BOYS- I Don't Want To Go 7"
The Jetboys were a striped shirt wearing, punky Power Pop band from Columbus, OH. They looked more like they'd fit in with the Fast or the Speedies in NYC than in a Midwestern town. They started when members of other local bands came together and formed a side band, just for fun. They played a bunch of shows in the area, but only released one 45 in 1981. The record was band financed, but it was released under Mike Rep's New Age Records imprint. The band soon faded, but the single stands as a hidden treasure among the more obscure reaches of the early days of punk.
Rerun presents a newly remastered reissue, in a limited edition of 500 copies. It comes in a heavyweight pocket sleeve, along with a fold-out insert featuring new liner notes and previously unpublished photos of the band.
