Biography

It’s 4 short years since The Jim Jones Revue exploded into the nation’s consciousness with the release of their visceral, back-to-rock’n’roll-basics debut album, of which Mojo Magazine proclaimed, "If Little Richard had written this he'd still be boasting about it today!"

The band have since toured the world many times over, shared bills with The ... Read more in Amazon's The Jim Jones Revue Store

Wow, what a fantastic album. Only heard of Jim Jones Revue from hearing Gideon Coe on 6 Music play 'Rock 'n' Roll Psychosis' one night and i was hooked. That track and listening to the album is excellent, unrelenting, pounding rock 'n' roll. The howling vocals, the bashing keyboards and that low fi, slightly distorted production lends itself to authenticity. Hearing an interview with Jim (previous James when he was in Thee Hypnotics) with Mark Reilly on 6 Music in session he said that he is influenced by 50's r'n'r and wanted to create the sound of a deep, screaming black vocal like Little Richard and he manages to do it. Litle Richard, meet Reverend Horton Heat via Jon Spencer/ Boss Hog. This is my album of the year.

"Rock n Roll is dead" is an oft used diatribe - the ultimate in nihilistic reproach when the mutterer suspects that they just weren't made for these times. Jim Morrison was yelling it at arena audiences back in '68 and the idea wasn't lost on Elvis fans a decade earlier as he shouldered his kit bag up the gangplank en route to Der Fatherland. You only have to glance at the covers of the music `glossies' with the same old tired stories of how Zeppelin tamed America, of Rick Rubins' Johnny Cash resurrection and yet another account of the Beatles White Album sessions. Pop may well eat itself but It appears that rock forgets, remembers and reassess itself - every month!! The Hold Steady? Pick a window - you're leaving. No sir, I was not made for these times.
But just as the natural order of things supply the human race with nurses, soldiers and criminals, every generation defaults to a glimmer of hope. From an era which considers Coldplay important and Madonna a feminist icon cometh The Jim Jones Revue.
Not to be confused with the religious idiot who preached Kool-Aid and suicide this Jim Jones - an epiphany of velvet waistcoats, sideburns and great shoes - wouldn't be out of place in a Tombstone gin joint. If Poe had a band The Jim Jones Revue would be it. London's music tableau is in a state of flux at the moment where the best of old school traditional forms appear to be melding with the fire of punk to create an exciting hybrid which is rocking clubs from Euston to Houston. `The Revue' are primary movers in this `secret revolution' and thirty seconds into their self-titled debut album you'll be all wised up and killing for tickets.

Jim Jones has been around in the music business for years in Thee Hypnotics and Black Moses, but nothing matches up to this album. You could be forgiven for thinking that he has managed to get Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis to appear as guests with some frantic piano playing, but the disc is packed with great songs. Fantastic rock'n'roll album that you will enjoy listening to many times, i'm looking forward to the next one already.

Middle aged men playing 12 bar blues has not always been something to be grateful for. The Jim Jones Revue is a profound exception. There's nothing lazy, complacent and nonchalant about the performances here. Without exception, they are all lean, hungry and only a sonic whisker away from fully igniting. And while, overall, the performances may be stronger than the songs, that doesn't mean that great songs are absent. My picks would be Princess & the Frog, Hey Hey Hey Hey and Who's Got Mine?, and the list is sure to be longer, or different, for other listeners. Most strikingly, I'm not sure I've ever encountered another record where you were so taken by the sheer importance of what the music means to the people playing it. The level of commitment fuelling the performances is paint blistering in itself. The saturated production is more contentious, and I'm undecided if it adds or detracts to or from the record's appeal. However, the sound, songs and performances, bizzarely, are only the facade of the Jim Jones Revue's purpose. The real point is that if you want proof that mid-20th Century rock 'n roll shouldn't be forgotten, you only have to listen to this record.

An ear-bleedingly loud, dirty, bug-eyed, vein-popping rock 'n' roll masterpiece. Sounding like it was recorded in one take in a telephone booth, The Jim Jones Revue's eponymous album is easily 2008's greatest debut. With all the power of the Stooges and the MC5 mixed with the boogie of Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard, this is the perfect antidote to the bed-wetting indie introspection of Keane, Coldplay and their ilk. Thirty minutes of mayhem that will restore your faith in rock 'n' roll.

Fantastic british rock with most of it's influences from the fifties America. If Little Richard were to be born again in a London garage, it would sound like this!

Possibly one of the best debuts I have ever heard, seriously. Fuzzy, dirty and loud. My speakers have been having regular workouts since I purchased this.

Buy It to keep your stereo happy, or blow your speakers trying.

What the Jim Jones Revue have produced is an album that sounds like they taken all that was obnoxious and brilliant from the key rock n roll acts that emerged through the 50's and early 60's, punk bands like The Ramones and the New York Dolls, the heaviest of the Texas blues acts like SRV, the sheer drive of the bands like the Stray Cats and Doctor Feelgood, throw them all into a room with a masses of cocaine in the air and musical instruments to play, tossed in a load of broken bottles and knives, locked the door, then taken the net result, distilled it down and each band member take a shot of it just prior to racing into the studio to record.

This record is PHENOMENAL.

Not even a split second of filler. It's just lean, full on obnoxious rock n roll music at its best. You could probably argue it is a little derivative in places but the delivery of it and the way the band mix all the above elements together is unique enough to make it stand out far and above all the other psychobilly, punkbilly, rock n roll revival acts etc spinning stuff out these days. I kinda see what one reviewer says about the 'quality' of the recording, but I would argue it works. It sounds like the whole band is trying to escape from your speakers using razor blades.

The mix does mean it makes it difficult to really listen to the album and fully enjoy it using headphones whilst on the move, but I figure that is a good thing because it means that by playing it at volume through speakers you will be either treating someone to some amazing music, or annoying another person with equal measure. And to me, that is what this record, nay, this band, is all about.
