International Jetsetters is an Oxford-based five piece. The band was formed in March 2007 by singer and guitarist Mark Crozer and bass player Bert Audubert who had been working together in various musical guises for a couple of years. Very quickly after the band was formed, Loz Colbert was asked to join (having already been working with Mark, firstly in Jim Reid's band and more recently in the reformed Jesus and Mary Chain.) As a three-piece, International Jetsetters played a smattering of gigs in 2007 before enlisting Mark's younger and smarter brother Paul as second guitarist. During the band's short stint as a four-piece they met and befriended local singer Fi McFall. When the Mary Chain needed a female singer to perform Just Like Honey at their 2007 Brixton Academy gig, Mark suggested Fi. After being suitably blown away with her vocal prowess (and learning that the Brixton show had in fact been her debut public performance), the band asked Fi to to join them. And so the line-up was complete...
