HitechJet

Hitechjet's journey started in Autumn 2001 when Bev (bass/b.vox), Adam (guitar), Mem (guitar/b.vox) and Mick (drums/b.vox) came together. They were joined at the beginning of 2002 by Brian (vocals) and following an unusually pain free naming exercise, became Hitechjet after a line from the Nina song 99 Red Balloons. The first and only rule ever agreed was that there would be no rules in regards to musical style.

Hitechjet's journey started in Autumn 2001 when Bev (bass/b.vox), Adam (guitar), Mem (guitar/b.vox) and Mick (drums/b.vox) came together. They were joined at the beginning of 2002 by Brian (vocals) and following an unusually pain free naming exercise, became Hitechjet after a line from the Nina song 99 Red Balloons. The first and only rule ever agreed was that there would be no rules in regards to musical style. This approach lead to an unrestrictive creative process, taking in influences ranging from Slayer to Jeff Buckley and everything in between. After months of rehearsals they played their first gig and recorded their first demo with John Hannon (Hundred Reasons, Red Jetson, Kids Near Water) engineering and producing. The response was immediate; great reviews from dozens of fanzines, gig offers and record labels interested in releasing their material.

As soon as Nottingham based label In At the Deep End Records (Send more Paramedics, Beecher, Steel Rules Die) showed an interest, Hitechjet had already made up their mind. In June 2003 Hitechjet released, If you take anything, a 7 track genre hopping mini-album which received critical acclaim in many magazines and fanzines including Kerrang (4K), Big Cheese (4/5) and Drowned in Sound (4.5/5). This led to shows with Lagwagon, Kasabian, Instruction, Red Animal War, My Awesome Compilation and Million Dead amongst others.

October 2005 saw the arrival of their first full length album 600 miles from recorded, engineered and produced by long time cohort John Hannon. 13 tracks combining punk, hardcore, indie, rock and lo-fi cast in their own inimitable style. « hide
