HARD rockers The Screaming Jets are celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of their debut album with a national tour stopping off in Golden Plains.

On Sunday, 24 July the band will take to Bannockburn’s Railway Hotel where they will play their 1991 album, All for One.

Bannockburn will be the third show on the band’s 26-date tour, and front man Dave Gleeson said he’s keen to take the show to the region.

“I do love that whole area around Geelong, and rather than just doing the capital cities all the time, the Jets have always prided ourselves on playing anywhere anytime,” he said.

“It’ll be great to get out there and rock out, play the album in its entirety which we’ve never done before, and just put the last few years in the rear view.”

All for One’s 30th anniversary edition was released late last year and has reached #4 on the ARIA album charts.

The re-recordings were tracked with original producer Steve James, and Gleeson said the songs maintain a balance of innovation while staying true to their original character.

“Some have been recorded exactly as they were and others have grown out of the live sphere after playing them for that many years,” he said.

“C’mon is one track that’s changed a bit because we wanted to rock out to it a bit more. Shine On has been extended with a mad lead part. Stuff like that.

“They’re natural changes we’re keen to show Bannockburn. We haven’t played some of the songs in 30 years so it’s exciting to be transported back to our early 20s.

“Hopefully our bodies can keep up.”
