THE RINGO JETS Short Info

Seen as the “pioneers of new generation of rock music” in Turkey, The Ringo Jets is
a rock’n’roll band from Istanbul; a loud one...
If there is an “aesthetic” we are speaking of, The Ringo Jets prefer to feed
themselves from timeless bands and people: Delta Blues of Son House and Howlin’
Wolf, Bo Diddley, The Who, The Sonics, The Kinks from the 60ʹ′ʹ′s, then The Stooges,
MC5 and Black Flag following them along with SS Decontrol, The Gories and so on…

After their outstanding showcase performances at GLIMPS (Gent), PRIMAVERA
SOUND (Barcelona), WAVES (Vienna), then opening act performances for legendary
bands like PIXIES, PORTISHEAD and the SONICS, the word is out…

Three on stage: two guitar-heroes and a miss on drums. They all sing...
Their official debut release been postpone due the riots in Istanbul (Gezi Park
Occupation) and they wanted to salute to this historic moment with a video of their
song “Spring of War” (written and recorded before the riots!). Video got a huge
impact in Turkey and viewed more then 150.000 times within 10 days…
This first album has been recorded in Officine Meccaniche in Milan (Klaxons,
Phoenix, Franz Ferdinand), produced/ recorded/mixed by Tommaso Colliva (Muse,
Franz Ferdinand, Afterhours, Calibro35) which will feature Mauro Refosco (Red Hot
Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Thom Yorke) and Enrico Gabrielli (John Parish, Mariposa,
Afterhours, Calibro35) released by Tantana Records by January 20th , 2014. Followed by a two-part-EP "Evil Eye" released in 2015.
Nowadays, they are working on another EP to be recorded in Red Bull Paris studios and expected to be out by spring 2015, where they are navigating into the garage sounds flavored with some turkish psychedelia.
You will keep hearing about them... very soon... and quite often...
