Flat Duo Jets is an American 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
Calling this album In Stereo might seem to imply that it has there is some other Flat Duo Jets album that is recorded in lower fidelity - in mono, perhaps. Maybe even a 78 or an Edison cylinder. I don't know of any album by this band in any of those media, but it would certainly be appropriate. This is rock & roll at a level so primitive and honest that it sounds like an early '20s field recording. The Flat Duo Jets - in this case Romweber and Crow - thrash their way through five rock & roll standards and one original tune, and they do it in fine and fascinating style
Recorded live to two-track in someone's garage (no, that's not a joke), Flat Duo Jets' self-titled debut album is about as close to a concise statement of musical purpose as one was likely to ever get from roots rock wild man Dexter Romweber (guitar/vocals) and his partner, Crow (drums). This time out, the duo also allowed themselves the rare luxury of a bass player, Tone.

The Flat Duo Jets, however, are completely different. There's nothing remotely nostalgic about there. When they played live, they never dressed in greaser regalia. The legendary Jim Dickinson's production makes the sound both clear enough yet still gritty.
