The Latch Brothers are Michael
Diamond, Tick, and Wag.
Their best known work prior to their involvement with the
JSRF project were remixes. First they remixed a song for
At the Drive In, who were on the Grand Royal record label
at the time. Later, they also did a "Shake Your Rump"
remix which can be found the Beastie Boys Video Anthology
For the JSRF project, the Latch Brothers
created a collection of original music which a person can
hear in the background as they play through the game. JSRF
stands for Jet Set Radio Future, which is a "hard-core
skating game" and the sequel to the game Jet Grind
Radio. The XBox gaming system will be the first place to
experience the music of the Latch Brothers and the action
When out in public, The Latch Brothers
have a tendency to only appear in costume. One is a Rabbit,
another an Elephant, and still another is a Lion. Had Grand
Royal Records not folded, perhaps we would have seen the
release of a soundtrack to the Jet Set Radio Future game.
