The Screaming Jets – LIVE


Born out of Newcastle, The Screaming Jets have been an enduring rock force in the Australian music landscape for over 3 decades.

With hits like “Better”, “October Grey”, “Sad Song”, “Helping Hand”, “Blue Sashes”, “Living In England”, “Shine Over Me”, “C’Mon” and SO many more!

In 1990 these five blokes from Newcastle took the Aussie music scene by the scruff of the neck and gave a red-hot shake.

Before they had even signed their first record deal, The Screaming Jets had already clocked up more than 200 live shows, won the ‘Triple J Battle Of The Bands’ competition and established themselves as an onstage, no holds barred, powerhouse of Aussie rock n roll!

At the time the hard rock UK music bible ‘Kerrang’ described enigmatic front man Dave Gleeson as “a tattooed madman, hell on heels, he leaps around the stage like an epileptic in a minefield: a real horror show cross between Alex from Clockwork Orange and, in part, Mike Patton”.

In 1990 the Jets signed to rooArt, the internationally focused Australian label created by INXS manager Chris Murphy and released their debut album ‘All For One’, which peaked at #2 on the Australian ARIA Charts. It was the band’s second single from that album, ‘Better’ that was the song that introduced the band to the world, and saw The Screaming Jets embark on their first world tour – to Europe, UK, USA and Canada.

“The Screaming Jets are quite possibly the finest rock band ever to come out of Australia.” – Heavy Magazine. Oct 2021
