Jeff Ward (ex Gunfire Dance guitarist and author), and Cynthia Ross (of ‘B’ Girls and New York Junk fame) bring their band ElectraJets to Berlin NYC on Saturday, September 7th; and to the UK in early November to celebrate their critically acclaimed first vinyl release, Transatlantic Tales, on Tarbeach Records.
Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Lydia Lunch, Jon Spencer) is guesting on drums for the New York show along with Sarah Amina on violin and Danny Ray on sax.
Joining ElectraJets for their Record Release Party at Berlin are Beechwood and The Sweet Things. Both bands have recently returned from successful tours of Europe and the UK.
Accompanying ElectraJets on their UK dates are Brum garage rockers Black Bombers. The Bombers have recently released their second LP on Easy Action Records to uniformly excellent reviews. With Alan Byron on guitar and vocals (Horse Feathers), Dave Twist on drums (The Prefects/Jacobites/Filipinos), and ‘Rockin’ Ray Birch on bass and vocals (Walter Lure/Brian James Gang/Gunfire Dance), the Black Bombers boast an esteemed lineage.
Ozzie, (Gunfire Dance, UK WALDOS) is guesting with ElectraJets on drums in the UK.

Their debut LP Transatlantic Tales on TARBEACH RECORDS out fall 2019, while experimental in nature, has garnered praise from the most diehard trash ‘n’ rollers with Veglam declaring:
“ElectraJets Make Absolutely Epic Psychedelic Glam Masterpiece!” – veglam.com
“It’s a rocket through time and space, pulsating with an irresistible beat and likely to appeal to fans of Detroit protest music, Julian Cope’s Black Sheep and “Cut The Crap” busking. There’s something here for fans of Pretty Things or Blue Cheer, so beautiful it hurts Love & Rockets-style nocturnal pop, ’60s prog, ’70s glitter, Marc Bolan, Bowie and the Stones.” – i94bar.com
The LP was recorded and engineered by noise guru Martin Bisi at BC Studio in New York City, produced and mixed by Jeff Ward, and mastered by Paul Gray in the UK.
Catch ElectraJets Transatlantic Tales live, on both sides of the Atlantic this fall.
