Flat Duo Jets

Flat Duo Jets was a Psychobilly band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Athens, Georgia. They were a major influence on several bands of the 1990s and 2000s, including The White Stripes. In interviews, Jack White (the White Stripes' lead singer and guitarist) has often acknowledged Dexter Romweber's influence. Their first album, Flat Duo Jets, was recorded direct to two tracks in a garage in the late 1980s but not released until early 1990. Also in early 1990 the band opened for The Cramps on a national tour. Jim Dickinson produced their second LP, Go Go Harlem Baby. Their ninth and last studio album, Lucky Eye, was their first major label release (Outpost Records), and was produced by Scott Litt, best known as a producer of R.E.M.. Singer/guitarist Dexter Romweber has pursued a solo career since the 1999 breakup of the Flat Duo Jets and has toured with Cat Power, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Neko Case and others. His older sister, Sara Romweber (who is a founding member of Snatches of Pink), plays drums with her brother as the Dexter Romweber Duo. Flat Duo Jets' drummer Crow Smith resurfaced in 2005 with a debut solo album of his own.
