New EP, The Wind Cries Jerrys, Now Available
The Wind Cries Jerrys, a 6-song EP containing all new music from The Jerrys, is now available on CD as well as downloads and streaming. From power pop ("Ms Wonderful," "Chicago USA," "Anna Marie") to uke-pop ("Another Glorious Day") to strummy goodness ("Doo-Doo-Doo-Doo") to who-knows-what ("I Think About You"), it's all here. The first song on the EP was released as a free download last year: "Chicago USA" is the latest song about that city, as well as a tribute to “Downtown” and “I Know a Place,” both made popular by Petula Clark. Listen to "Chicago USA" and check out the trailer for The Wind Cries Jerrys below.

What Others Are Saying
The Jerrys Featured in Pixels of Young Mueller
The Jerrys are featured in Pixels of Young Mueller, a coming-of-age tale published in 2010. Written in "an engaging and entertaining style," the story of Klaus Mueller is "insightful and thought provoking, with laugh-out-loud moments."
From his earliest days, young Mueller dreams of becoming a rock star. In the next-to-last chapter of the novel, Klaus forms his own one-man British pop group, The Jerrys, and "The King of I Don't Care," a song from the band's CD Jerryrigged, also appears in Pixels of Young Mueller.
You can watch the book's promo video as performed at Rumble House in Chicago, or you can watch Jerry Schwartz perform the song at Tuesday Funk while reading from his novel. Also, be sure to check out the original book trailer below.
