Biography

THE JACKETS - WILD GARAGE PUNK FROM SWITZERLAND!
(http://www.last.fm/music/The+Jackets)

The Jackets are Jack Torera (aka Jackie Brutsche) formerly the guitarist for the girl group The Mad Cowgirl Disease from Bern and singer of the Zurich combo The Fox, Chris Rosales, an American who moved to Switzerland in 1994 from Los Angeles, formerly the drummer of Voodoo Rhythm Records bands, Lightning Beat-Man and the Never Heard of ‘Ems, Reverend Beat-Man and the Unbelievers and The Get Lost (with ex Miracle Workers Gerry Mohr and Robert Butler) and Samuel ‘Schmidi’ Schmidiger, singer and guitar player for The Budget Boozers.

In 2006 Jack Torera teamed up with Chris Rosales to form The Trash Department, a two-piece, low-fi noise band. in 2007 they joined forces with Severin Erni former bass player of Tight Finks and The Jackets were born. In November of 2008 Samuel ‘Schmidi’ Schmidiger replaced Erni on bass and the rest is history. The Jackets released their debut album, “Stuck Inside” on August 1st 2009 on Subversiv Records (Switzerland).

Combining sixties garage, mod, ‘77 punk rock, psychedelia and their devotion to bands like The MC5, The Monks, and The Music Machine, The Jackets bring a dynamic recipe to the garage rock ‘menu’. What is important to note is that the Jackets are a Rock and Roll band - but it’s the ROLL that makes the ROCK just that little bit better! The Jackets have electrified concert-goers in every major city in Switzerland and have also played or toured in Italy, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal sharing the stage with bands like Baby Woodrose, The Monsters, The Magnetix, King Kahn & BBQ, Gonn and The Downliners Sect.
