If you miss the good ole' days when a rock band consisted of the basic four - vox, guitar, drum, and bass without the extra baloney, then you absolutely have to check out the sexy, back-to-basics rock 'n' roll of Burning Jet Black. Like many other bands that try to revive rock's golden era with a few chords and nothing but the truth, BJB isn't exactly rehashing the sounds of your dad's old records. Their music actually veers more on the authentic but still rooted in old school with a modern twist.
Listen to the first single 'Magazine Girl' or the sexy swagger of 'Waiting For Tomorrow' off of debut EP 'The Modern Egotist', and fall in love with their legit guitar driven rock in the likes of the Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, hell, even The Doors. Hailing from Los Angeles and previously from the band The Whiskey Saints, they decided to dump the old band name and adopt BJB in response to the new tunes. This easy-on-the-eyes and oh so good to your ears basic four is David Bloomfield (guitar), David Sparrow (vox/guitar), Jeff Bell (drums), and Rob Hughes (bass). Catch them at the Tin Can Ale House in San Diego August 4! - Lana Vadiyants
