The Mystery Jets are made up of the following buccaneering backbeat boys: Kai – bass/double bass vocals; Kapil – drums; Blain – keyboards/percussion/lead vocals; William – lead guitar/vocals; and Henry – rhythm guitar/keyboards/stylophone/vocals.
Self-confessed purveyors of “barber shop/skiffle soaked Mersey beat a’u modern”, they’re also a dab hand at throwing ‘weird parties in boat sheds’ and ‘propelling forward the kind of sounds flying saucers make when they disobey intergalactic speed limits.’
They were in recording and mixing Alas Agnes – the follow-up to You Can’t Fool Me Dennis and due for release on Dec 4th 2005 – in The Garden in the autumn of 2005. James Ford was producing and Miloco’s Finn Eiles was engineering and Mike Grimley was in attentive attendance.
They have since returned to Miloco in July 2007, where they used Musikbox and The Pool with producer Erol Alkan and engineer Al O Connell.
