Cheap Tequila (CD)
Go Down Records is proud to introduce you "CHEAP TEQUILA", the third and latest album of Small Jackets, who were born in 2000 when drummer Danny Savanas and singer guitarist Lu Silver joined up to form the group. The band's discographical debut came after the first three years with "Play At High Level", an album supported by a long tour in which the band played on stage together with the Swedish sensations The Hellacopters.
