BBC Review

The noble art of the 12-bar boogie has gradually been devalued over the years.

Fifty years ago, it was one of the most vital, life-affirming forms of musical expression known to mankind, but it has since been watered down by a million rubbish bar bands playing ‘good time rock’n’roll’ with neither the energy to rock nor the sensibilities to roll.

But there are still a few snake-hipped firebrands determined enough to trace this form of beefed-up blues back to its primal, screaming essence. This second long-play offering from east London quintet The Jim Jones Revue specialises in boogie with the speaker-ripping rasp of a Little Richard rather than the sedate chug of a Status Quo.

There’s a noble lineage of this back-to-basics approach, dating back to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s swamp rock, and carrying on through bequiffed 90s stompers like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Rocket from the Crypt. But frontman Jim Jones’s raw, tonsil-eviscerating delivery is less stylised than those latter two, and the 21st century production, courtesy of Bad Seeds/Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos, make it sound considerably fiercer than John Fogerty’s blue collar bawling.

Often this kind of act doesn’t do itself justice on record – you’ll catch them live and be blown away, vowing to ‘testify’ and get their name tattooed on your neck, but then find that once their untamed sound is squashed into a 60-watt speaker on your living room stereo they don’t have quite the same pant-wetting effect. So it’s tribute to this album’s crackling, slash’n’burn sound that the impact is hardly dampened.

The sheer power of presentation more than makes up for an occasional lack of conventional songwriting skills. Jones camps it up a treat on the pantomime villain vocal of Foghorn, while Burning Your House Down sounds like Tom Waits after a monstrous night on the whiskey. Killin’ Spree resembles Nick Cave channelling the louche rumble of Dr Feelgood, and elsewhere, string-shredding guitar, furiously chattering piano and blistering, blustery rhythm mean you’re bombarded with sonic viscera.

In other words, resistance is futile. The Jim Jones Revue have come to save rock’n’roll. Sign away your souls here.

Just a quick note to say that this is a really enjoyable modern R&R styled album. Loud, screaming, great fun and gutsy.

If you like the JJR and want something else to try ...well you could do worse than checking out the wonderful and much missed Rocket From The Crypt (RFTC) who were doing this sort of punk take on rockabilly some years ago. They are no more however (RIP) - so it is good to have the JJR carrying the flame on!

The awesome Jim Jones Revue are back to drive a dagger into the heart of all emotionless, soulless music. This is real, authentic, passionate, raw, exciting, rock n roll with one foot rooted in the past and paying homage to Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis at their wildest, but the other firmly in a different place where they kick ass alongside the likes of the MC5, Iggy, The Pistols, and Motorhead.
This second cd ( not including the 'Here to save your soul' compilation ) has done away with the intentionally lo-fi distorted garage production of the debut, which served to showcase the raw aggression of the band, for a more bottom heavy and clearer production, and it is a brilliant effort as the songs on this cd still rip and tear out of your speakers and bristle with the pure energy of the band in the live situation and yet show more of the great ivory tinkling and razor sharp riffs and lead breaks that litter this cd. The rhythm section is superb too, loads of pumping walking basslines and rock solid drumming and the simply unbelievable throat shredding banshee wail of Mr Jones, a bloke who knows a thing or three about writing great rock n roll songs.
If you are any kind of a fan of old style rock n roll or a fan of great hard rock, either way you're going to love this cd. There are no fillers here, I genuinely cannot pick out a favourite track above any other. And with respect to another reviewer, I don't believe that RFTC can bear much comparison to JJR, this is altogether a nastier, louder and more aggressive beast.
See this band live if you can and buy this cd. Turn it up LOUD and don't forget to wear asbestos gloves and underpants.

Unpolished, fiery, rockin' mayhem! They aren't clever but their music is big, and they don't overproduce their music but they are quality musicians and have created something that is lacking in this day and age. They are a combo of 50s rock and roll and early punk - with a slight feel of The Hives rawer work. Really enjoyable in this day and age of X Factor and over-polished RnB rubbish in the charts. Apparently, superb live (I will find out in a month or so) give them a go and if you have any musical taste you won't be disappointed!

Exactly what I would come to expect from The Jim Jones Revue lads, amazing live performances full of energy and somehow they were able to transfer that onto their recorded material. Recommended

I love this album! It's gritty, old school rock to get enthusiastic about. The kind of thing you listen to if you want to get motivated (I use it as running musc a lot). I love the texture and the absence of electro-nonsense. The quality of this doesn't hide behind technical gimics, it genuinely is great. Distinctly not 'mum music'! I'm not good on genres etc but if you like Dead Weather, the Black Keys and perhaps Cold War Kids, then I reckon you'll love this.

Well, they've done it again. The second JJR album pretty much picks up where the last one left off. Piling-driving rock'n'roll that effortlessly fuses the piano-driven boogie of early hell-raisers Little Richard and Jerry Lee with the intent and attack of punk rock.

Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos has done a fine production job cleaning up and streamlining JJR's chaotic sound while losing none of its impact.

There are no covers this time and the songs take a little longer to bed in than those on the first album. But after a few listens tracks such as Premeditated, Dishonest John and the mighty Righteous Wrong become every bit as addictive as their predecessors.

The only reason this didn't get five stars is that if you've bought the excellent singles compilation Here To Save Your Soul and the latest 7inch High Horse, you already own three of the songs here, including the title track. But this is a tiny quibble with what is an amazing album.

Burning Your House Down cements JJR as the best band in Britain but if you really want to appreciate what a revelation they are, you've got to see them live.

I'm sure I will play another record again - but it's not going to be for a few weeks yet. This one's all I need to be getting on with...

Great stuff. As others have said, there's nothing new here, but these guys play everything as if their lives depend on it. The whole album sounds like they plonked a mic down in the middle of the room and walked out 40 minutes later (a good thing!)
