“JETSETRADIO. almost make glitzy, polished electro-dance cool and provide an excellent Irish alternative to the mass imported mainstream pop we are subjected to on a daily basis.

Q: How did you guys come up with the name?
A: Well, I'm a pretty big video game fan (read: nerd) and one of my absolute favourites is Jet Set Radio for Dreamcast (and JSR:Future for xbox). When we were trying to name the band we went through various video game references (we were very nearly called Rare Candy :P). We even had Cobra Starship frontman Gabe Saporta suggest one, Dinobots, but it just didn't fit. Eventually I pitched Jet Set Radio and everyone felt it worked and that was that! Andy K x
