Background

The Screaming Jets are a hard rock group that formed in January 1989 in Newcastle with singer Dave Gleeson, drummer Brad Heaney, guitarist Richard Lara, guitarist Grant Walmsley and bass guitarist Paul Woseen.[1][2] Their first performance was at a Newcastle pub in March.[2] The band won the inaugural National Band Competition run by youth radio broadcaster Triple J in November.[1][2] They relocated to Sydney by early 1990 and supported The Angels on a national tour. In May, they signed with independent label, rooArt.[2] Their debut extended play (EP), The Scorching Adventures of the Screaming Jets, was issued in December.[1]

In April 1991, The Screaming Jets released their debut studio album All for One which peaked at No. 2 on the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Albums Chart.[3] It was produced by Steve James and released by rooArt in Australia, Germany and United States as a CD, cassette and LP album.[4] The US release has an alternative cover. It reached the Top 50 on the ARIA End of Year Albums Chart for 1991.[5]

The lead single, "C'mon", did not reach the top 50 on the ARIA Singles Chart.[3] The album spawned a No. 4 hit single, "Better".[3] Two top 40 singles, "Stop the World" and "Shine On", followed.[3] The controversial track "F. R. C." ("Fat Rich Cunts") was a crowd favourite – a live version was released on Stealth Live! (EP, 1991) – which Gleeson would dedicate to Michael Gudinski or Russ Hinze at concerts.[1] At times, "F. R. C." was performed by guest vocalists from Mortal Sin, The Choirboys or The Angels.

Following the album's release, the group relocated to the United Kingdom where they based themselves for over two years. They toured there, the rest of Europe and the US as they supported varied hard rock and heavy metal bands. Their third EP, Living in England, was issued in June 1992 and included cover versions of Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues and AC/DC's "Ain't No Fun (Waiting Round to Be a Millionaire)".[1]

According to Australian rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, All for One "was a cogent and energetic release, one of the strongest debuts from an Australian hard rock band. Reference points for the album's gritty rock'n'roll included the flash of early Van Halen mixed with the traditional thunder of AC/DC and The Angels".[1]
