Go Go Harlem Baby

Flat Duo Jets

Third Man Records' re-issue of the seminal 1991 album

Play it loud, play it proud...

The piece de resistance of Dex Romweber’s voluminous back catalog, ably backed by the trusty Chris “Crow” Smith on drums, GGHB is as solid an LP as you will ever find.

The piece de resistance of Dex Romweber’s voluminous back catalog, ably backed by the trusty Chris “Crow” Smith on drums, GGHB is as solid an LP as you will ever find.

Some of you may remember Jack White dropping the needle on the Jets’ version of “Froggy Went a Courtin’” in the “It Might Get Loud” documentary as an indicator of his early influences. Maybe you remember the White Stripes covering “You Belong to Me” or “Apple Blossom Time” in their live performances.  Maybe you didn't know that Bloodshot Rob first saw them when he was a stage manager for the Cramps in Detroit in 1991 and FDJ opened.  He was duly blown away.  Any way you dice it, Dex and the Flat Duo Jets threw some mighty big stones into the pond of the American underground and this shit is STILL rippling around...

These songs, as well as all the rest featured on Go Go Harlem Baby are genuinely important in the pantheon of American music.

Out-of-print on vinyl since it’s original issue, Third Man Records worked solidly for a year-and-a-half to make this record available again. Please enjoy.  No, wait, not "please", we COMMAND you to enjoy.
