Idle Jets

On Sunday morning Mrs CC selected a random CD, put it on and challenged me to guess who it was.
I was pretty stumped. It sounded like powerpop so I guessed wrongly that it was Matthew Sweet.

I got the powerpop bit right though. Turns out it was the Idle Jets with their 1999 album Atomic Fireball. A band I have not seen nor had I heard of them when I bought the album.

I have seen the lead singer Pat Buchanan though which led me to buy this and a subsequent solo album by him.
Nothing more to add really other than I think some of you may like it.

Idle Jets - Genius of the Obvious

Idle Jets - Christina


  1. two excellent tracks. Never heard of this lot before today.

    1. is this where you tell me you sent me a copy?

  2. I remember the name, but I don't recall ever hearing a note from this band before today... a real treat.

  3. Ooh thanks for this CC, just the sort of power pop I really like but realise I just don't given enough time to! Great.

  4. This is an album I've been trying to track down for a while as I love Atomic Fireball. I almost featured them on Saturday Snapshots but I just couldn't find a photo of them anywhere, just a few of Pat Buchanan in later years as a solo artist.
