the Flat Duo Jets playing at Cogan's Instant Art in Norfolk, VA back in the day...
before they hit the stage I wondered where the rest of the band was. After Dex
and Crow finished, however, my mind had no such questions. Wow, what a powerful
group! Dex and the Flat Duo Jets recorded output over
the years has been, shall we say, all over the place. Different labels,
different compilations, and of course with the split of the FDJs, different band
configurations. We'll try and give you some solid recommendations on where to go
to maximize your Dexter/Flat Duo Jets needs.
Dex and Sara's new CD, "Is That You in the Blue?" is out via Bloodshot Records. Produced by Rick Miller of Southern Culture on the Skids who also played on the album along with members of The Old Ceremony and Savage Knights.
Dex, Sara and Jack White with "The Wind
Did Move" and "Last Kind Word Blues" available at Jack's
Third Man Records.
Also, get the "The Ruins of Berlin" on Bloodshot Records.
Here's some video from YouTube:
"Jungle Drums" from "Blue?"
Cool video for "Death of Me" from "Blue?"
Great interview/performance video with Dex and Crash from Paul Unger and the Hardcore Norfolk team
Breaking Into the World of Spirit
Beautiful duet with violinist Jennifer Curtis on "Brazil"
Here's that MTV 'Cutting Edge' piece.
Dex and Crash live at the joint I first saw FDJ, Cogan's
Nice video from Dex and sister Sara's album "Ruins of Berlin." Look closely, you'll see at least THREE Silvertones in this video.
Here's some solo (duo! trio!) Dex music to get:
Introducing Flat Duo Jets
Go Go Harlem Baby
and keep your eye out in the thrift shop or back row of the music store for Safari, or borrow it from a friend (but you better give it back or they'll come after you).
and more... pick up anything with Flat Duo Jets on the cover... you will rock.
