THE TRANCE - farewell to a world untorn LP is reviewed by Mike Korbik from Twang! Records / Guitars Galore:
"…the songwriting is with no doubt rooted in the Flower Power era of the year 1967 with characteristics of bands like TOMORROW, ART, SMALL FACES, sometimes also THE WHO, THE ANIMALS or SPENCER DAVIS GROUP. On the other hand, the style and arrangements shows, that they are also kids from the revival of the 80´s. Bands like THE PRISONERS, MAKIN`TIME and not least THE VOGUE from Vienna have left their mark on the sound of this album. The LP contains all songs they had ever recorded, including the so far unreleased song „The Ride“ and a slight rougher demo version of „Magic Sphere“. The sequence of the songs here is different as on the CD from 1998. It starts with „Officer Pearson“, an unique Mod Psych Pop song, which bring you straight to the SciFi worlds of the seventies. Beside of strong R&B Mod Beat tracks there are consequently those trips into psychedelic dreams and fantasy worlds, without given up to much the down-to-earth attitude. The LP is limited to 200 copies, 50 of them in transparent vinyl, 50 in marbled vinyl and 100 on black wax.
The best re-issue of the year!"

"... Jam Division ..."
"... they surprise again with their unique and varied sound of Pop Punk and 79er Mod Revival, with an overlying black cloud of Post-punk melancholy and French Cold Wave darkness..."
"... but the framework is still Powerpop or Mod Revival- Sound from bands as Long Tall Shorty, The Chords, Purple Hearts or early The Jam... "
"... with this exceptional melange of two from Punk born and influenced music genres, from the late 70´s and early 80´s, they are pretty unique in the current scene... "

Stunning compilation, a fantastic round-up of the early years and a timely reminder about that band and era.
Beside of The Clique in UK, the JAYBIRDS were unanimously acclaimed the coolest Mod band on the authentic side of the Mods and R&B/ Freakbeat-Scene in Europe during the 90´s.
Just in time for their 30th years anniversary this 22 song amalgamation contains all their early singles, eps and some true rarities. Smokestack Lightning, an extended 9.19 min live cut, recorded in 1995 at the 1st Beat-O-Mania festival in Munich shows in a perfect way the typical JAYBIRDS sound: authentic and rough R&B !!!
Fully analogue remastered by Dennis Rux in Hamburg, housed in a gatefold sleeve designed by Murphy Morphine (Wild Evel & The Trashbones) and original band poster of this era included.

Mod haircuts, short jackets, pointed boots, hipsters, cufflinks, R&B, Freakbeat, style and passion: this is what you find in THE JAYBIRDS nest!
Born in Vienna (Austria) 1989 by Bernhard Gold (vocals), Andreas Preisl (guitar), Markus Zöchling (bass guitar) und Thomas Schmitzberger (drums) with the intention to form an authentic 60´s style band. The three youngsters had their first gig on 25th May 1991. Patrick Nagl (guitar) joined in March 1993. After the first both tours in 1994 (Germany, England, Belgium) Andreas Preisl left the band and replaced by Norb Payr.
Beside of The Clique in UK, the Jaybirds were in Europe during the 90´s unanimously acclaimed as the coolest Mod band in the authentic side of the Mods and R&B/ Freakbeat-scene.
Their fame and original ways brought them to share the stage with The Rolling Stones in Vienna 1998 in front of 80.000 people. After 145 gigs in Austria, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, England and Belgium - including the famous Mod Weekender´s Beat-O-Mania and Modstock Saarbrücken, they played on 16th June 2001 in Berlin their last gig and took a hiatus. But the guys did not really rest in their laurels, for the next years most of them continued their musical passion in several other 60´s style bands in Austria.
The discography at this point of time composed of 2 LP's/CD's, 4 EP´s, and 1 Single and also a few live recordings edited on compilations.
But in 2006, with no news from them since 2002, the Five R&B Mad Boys found together again and The Jaybirds were back to life with more strength, experience and clearer ideas than ever before!
The first gig of the 2nd period was at Rote Bar in Vienna, Austria on 28th October 2006. Soon the idea of a new 7" matured. But all good things need time, so finally the single ‘Take Your Chance‘ hit the streets on 21st February 2009. Around one year later, in 2010, it followed a 14 song live recorded album. Both were sold out in no time!
During the 2nd period they played with the Sonics in London (2008) and the Standells in Madrid (2010). Expect the Two Men From L.I.N.Z. Weekender they hit the stage at almost all Mod & Sixties Events in Europe:
