Dave Stops The Presses – End Of Tour Rave
STOP THE F*&$IN’ PRESSES – IT’S AN END OF TOUR RAVE
The ‘ATOMIC 47‘ 25th Anniversary Tour for Australian band The Screaming Jets was a smashing success. Reports that attest to the greatness of this Aussie rock group are flooding in from around the country.
“ Phat as Phuck” screamed the banner headlines across the nation, all the way from the NT ( Northern Testicle) Times through to the Cowra University News Tribune, the verdict was unanimous – “… this bunch of bedraggled troubadour style ragamuffins, with their outlandish ways and even more outlandish musical stylings, really have a rather extraordinary way of entertaining their legions of salivating fans. A huge huzzah to each of them.”
… we couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Now, the reason I am writing this little wrap up well over a month after the last riff of the tour was fired in anger is something I am sure many of you long term Jets fans are patently aware of …Gleeso is a f*&$in’ slack arse and would rather be hunted by Glen McGrath than interact with a keyboard (computer or otherwise). Having said that, I have also been a little busy with other shit, anyway, here goes…..
“So many highlights from a tour that seemed to flash by so quick. It was great to have the band absolutely firing on all 12, yes 12, cylinders. Every show that we did just affirmed my faith in the band and was a true indication of what great Aussie rock is all about. It was a real treat, not just for us but the fans as well, that Izzy was able to fill in for a couple of shows. First he filled in for Scotty in Darwin, and then for Jimi in early January which was when Jimi and his beautiful lady were expecting and ultimately having their lovely little fella. – CONGRATS TO JIMI AND ALANA. ALL THE BLESSINGS OF THE JETS BROTHERHOOD BE UPON YOU.“
“Some absolutely ball tearing gigs during the ‘Atomic 47′ run. The Gov in Adelaide again, what can I say??? We actually recorded that show and it is currently being edited, mixed etshitra, so hold your breath for that one. The big question on everybody’s lips of course is; “Will the Burwood Bowlo on the beaches of Newy, where The Jets played a massive outdoor show, ever be the same?” The short answer is ‘No’. However the bigger question that needs to be asked and answered is “Will the F.R.C’s who live opposite the Burwood Bowlo ever be the same?” Again, the short answer is ‘No’. My dad asked if the police had turned up, as some of his acquaintances who live in the vicinity had called them to complain about the foul language being screamed into the night air by a couple of thousand rockers …and obviously one in particular who had a very loud microphone in his hand! People of The Bluff would be pleased to know that many members of the constabulary did show up to speak to us, and we were more than happy to pose for photos with all of them no matter their rank – Cops Are Tops“.
“Also a big thank you to the guys from Lake Tyers, especially the lovely L, who along with lifelong friends organised a gig at one of the most beautiful Victorian coastal towns imaginable. The rain sucked, but I hope this event becomes a yearly stop on the Australian touring schedule.“
“Of course it wouldn’t have been a Jets tour without some f&$kups along the way. No album – mostly my fault. (Thousand apologies) Late arrival of the live DVD from the Metro 2013 – my fault. (Thousand apologies) Onstage banter that pushed buttons, pissed people off, made baby Jesus cry – my fault. (No apologies)“
“We are about to start with the pre prod (muso speak) for the 8th Jets album, you all know the working title, (same as the last 7) but your suggestions for a title, if you submit them to us here, will be dully (correct spelling) noted.“
IT’S NOW 2015 AND THE JETS ARE A LEAN, MEAN, FIGHTIN’ MACHINE. WHY, WE’RE THE GREATEST ROCKIN’ BAND THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.

Gleeson Sets The World On A Steady Course
While The Screaming Jets were playing in Queensland last weekend front man Dave Gleeson took some time out to help the leaders of the G20 summit understand just which way the world should be heading.
“…it’s all about peace and good times fellas” he told the assembled group of capitalist f&^ckin’ war mongering elitists. “What you need to realise is that we could sit down over a beer and solve most of the world’s problems if only you came to a few shows and stopped wearing those funny clothes!“
