Formed in the summer of 2001 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, by Charles Van de Kree, Rob Nezzer, and Roland Thoms, Jet Jaguar developed out of the group members' life-long passion for space rock, punk, postpunk, and industrial music. The group produced several early demos that eventually led to the release of their first full-length disc Free Space in 2002. Combining the explosive cosmic energy of Hawkwind with the mutated industrial buzz of Chrome, the group produced three more albums between 2004 and 2009, including Billion Year Spree, Space Anthem, and 3rd Millennium Power Drive, all of which have now been re-released on Overlord Records. Their long overdue final album, Mysteries of Antimatter, was released by Overlord in March 2015. Jet Jaguar's post-space rock (a Molotov cocktail of punk, metal, psychedelic, and industrial (dubbed "free wave" by one commentator) has been featured on numerous national and international radio programs and compilation albums. They were also one of the bands featured in the Gail Davis-directed film Route 666 (2008), a rockumentary about Albuquerque's legendary punk/alternative club the Launch Pad.
