Often described as a Mexican Rock-a-billy band, their influences mix Carlos spanish heritage with influences that cross a very wide musical spectrum, and complimented by their self penned songs about broken relationships, death, drug addiction and the odd western-flavoured murder song and Carlos's some-what colourful stage gear.

Keeping it in the family, the three Cotton brothers play with as much energy and power as a six piece band. The Jets were soon snapped up by top record label EMI with a string of hits to follow including "Love Makes The World Go Round", "Yes Tonight Josephine" and "Party Doll". Along with the hits came several TV appearances and world wide tours performing with big named acts suc as Robert Plant, Cliff Richard, Shakin' Stevens, Carl Perkins and The Crickets.
