With their swaggering mix of fierce guitars and often ethereal vocal melodies, the group has carved its way past pretenders and continue in determined fashion to make their way towards what seems to be their inevitable place on rock's throne.
Reclaiming their right to rock and in doing so, saying "hear this" to those who'd always said the group's studio sound never came close to the live guitar dynamics which were their head-crunching trademark, Done saw the group set themselves a new standard for incendiary guitar noise.
Straitjacket Fits have spent the latter half of 1993 taking the long road on a tour that has stretched from New Zealand, all the way through North America to Europe.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Straitjacket: Modern Thieves
Portland's Straitjacket won't crease any brows in the experimental department, but the band's '77-flavored English punk still packs quite a punch.
It's not a stretch to liken Straitjacket to Stiff Little Fingers, UK Subs and even The Buzzcocks -- they leave their mark with hammer-strength rhythms and an earnest vocal nod to Stiv Bators.
They are simple, well-written punk tunes with just enough snottiness and brash attitude to give Straitjacket a distinctive personality.

 Sitio oficial de Ticketmaster. Straitjacket Fits boletos, fechas
Noisy New Zealand guitar-pop band Straitjacket Fits was led by singer/guitarist Shayne Carter and rounded out by his former Doublehappys mate John Collie on drums and bassist David Wood; a second guitarist, Andrew Brough, signed on shortly after the group's 1986 formation.
The 1987 EP Life in One Chord was Straitjacket Fits' debut, scoring a minor hit with the wonderful "She Speeds"; they resurfaced a year later with the LP Hail, which received almost universal acclaim.
Without Brough's more melodic contributions, Straitjacket Fits adopted an even more raw sound than in the past, first evidenced by the 1992 EP Done; the 1993 LP Blow continued in a similar vein, but after touring America with the Bats and the JPS Experience, the band amicably dissolved.
