JET News – Hear SHAKA ROCK in full

JET’s new album SHAKA ROCK is now available for listening exclusively on Myspace.  Go to to check it out.

JET and Gibson Guitars are running a contest on Twitter to give people a chance to win an autographed Gibson Melody Maker guitar.  Go to for details.

The popular iPhone and iPod touch game, Tap Tap Revenge 2 is featuring 3 songs from SHAKA ROCK and a contest to win a package of cool JET gear.  Check out for details.



Juno Award-winning, internationally recognized singer/songwriter Sass Jordan will be performing a special acoustic show at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, ON.  The intimate evening will include Jordan performing some of her greatest hits along with selections from her upcoming album From Dusk Til Dawn (Kindling Music/Warner).  The evening will also be recorded for a future live album release.  Opening the show will be Oliver Pigott at 8:30pm with Sass Jordan at 9:30pm.

Jordan, who has sold over one million CDs worldwide, is a winner of Billboard’s Best Female Rock Vocalist award and has become a household name after 30 years as a performer.  The bilingual Montrealer has toured and/or worked with many music heavyweights, including Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Carlos Santana and Joe Cocker.

People Magazine once described her husky-toned voice as "pained but indomitable," swaps the poppy vibe of her last studio album for a more rootsy, intimate sound that reflects her early propensity for artists like The Band, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, and The Allman Brothers.  The progression of Jordan’s sound will lend itself perfectly to an intimate acoustic performance.

A Special Evening With Sass Jordan and guest Oliver Pigott

Date:  Saturday, September 12, 2009

Time:  6:00pm – 11:00pm

Location:  Hugh’s Room

Street:  2261 Dundas Street West

City/Town:  Toronto, ON


Meat Puppets announce September tour dates with Dead Confederate after a recent feature on ABC!

After a weekend of shows opening for Stone Temple Pilots

and an appearance on ABC Amplified,

Meat Puppets announce September dates

co-headlining with Georgians Dead Confederate

including a very special show in Los Angeles presented by Aquarium Drunkard.

If you haven’t seen ABC Amplified, watch the story of their journey to hell and back here and here.

Press LOVES Sewn Together!

"Thank you Jesus for the Kirkwood brothers. Sewn Together is one of the top five best albums I’ve heard so far this year and more importantly, it is yet another step in The Meat Puppets’ journey of greatness." – THE TRIPWIRE

"Sewn Together, which is a wonderfully satisfying work. Somehow, it all does get sewn together in a mix of styles that’s both head-spinning and earthily rocking." – LA WEEKLY

"Sewn Together is reminiscent of the glory days of the Meat Puppets." – FILTER

" 3 1/2 Stars… The interplay of Curt’s drowsy vocals and freaky guitar can still induce vertiginous spells — witness the dreamy yet insistent "Blanket of Weeds" — while the snappy "Love Mountain" reveals the clever pop craftsman behind his woozy persona." – SPIN

"Sewn Together’s songs demonstrate that the once purveyors of grunge are still adept songwriters." – AOL SPINNER

"The number of ingredients found in a Meat Puppets record is impressive, but the way the band blends those pieces is what’s truly astonishing. At its best, Arizona’s Meat Puppets makes you think there are no boundaries between punk, country, and pop. The appropriately named "Sewn Together" finds Curt Kirkwood and his brother Cris Kirkwood crafting mongrel music as fine as anything in the band’s catalog." – BOSTON GLOBE

Everyone from Nirvana to Pavement to Stone Temple Pilots cite Meat Puppets as one of the most significant American bands.

The highly influential Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band, but established their own unique style, blending punk with country and psychedelic rock. Meat Puppets later gained significant exposure when the Kirkwood brothers served as guest musicians on Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance in 1993. The band’s subsequent album Too High to Die went gold, selling over 500,000 albums, and became their most successful release. The band reunited in 2006.

Recorded at The Saltmine in Phoenix, Arizona in winter 2009, the album features the Kirkwood brothers, Cris and Curt, with drummer Ted Marcus.
