Biography

Jetpack began in the 1990s and is primarily musician Jetpack Dan or Daniel J. and Michael Kramer, who drums and co-produces. Although they are a duo with some guests on studio albums, they play live as a four piece. Jetpack often mixes the traditionally accepted surf instruments, such as Fender guitars and tube amplifiers, with nontraditional instruments such as fretless bass and 12 string Rickenbacker guitars, and branches into other related sub-genres of rock such as spy, noir, and rockabilly music. Jetpack CDs are sold world-wide and music has been featured on international television shows of networks such as ESPN and MTV and in motion pictures.
In recent years, some of their music has been attributed wrongly to other bands not just on Last FM, but at stores as well. Examples include a Tennessee “Jetpack UK” who called themselves simply “Jetpack” on their label debut in 2005 (Conversely, Jetpack was also renamed “Jetpack UK” by mistake), and 2006 saw a new bands from Germany and St. Louis wrongly using the name.
The Last FM playlist suffers from the same problem. To help clairify: Only these albums should be in the Jetpack Discography:

“Planet Reverb” (Pascal Records)
“Surfin’ to No Doubt” (Vitamin Records)
“Sharper Image: Surf Guitar” (Sharper Image store/Sugo Music)
“Summer of 2005” (Surfbands).
“Attack of the 12-String” (To be announced)

Actual songs from Jetpack on Last FM should only be:
Motel Nowhere
The Fury
Bus Stop Pacifica
Get Even
Agent J
Lunik 2
