Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Jim Jones Revue have been described as sounding like a car crash between Little Richard and The MC5, playing supercharged rock 'n' roll inspired by The Killer, The Georgia Peach and of course The Memphis Flash and the deranged sons of Detroit. This debut album of the Jim Jones Revue is a raw, unrefined, rude and lewd beast. Embrace it with both arms now! Also available on LP.

Review

If Little Richard had written this, he'd still be boasting about it today. FOUR STARS. --Mojo Magazine, September 2008

Format: Audio CD
"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 f**kin' 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 a primary mover in this `secret revolution' and thirty seconds into their self-titled debut album you'll be all wised up and killing for tickets.

Love The Jim Jones Revue, but this CD is almost unlistenable. I know that making CDs "hot" (oversaturating) is all the rage, but this CD takes it to a new high (or low in my opinion). This CD is so oversaturated that it is painful to listen to. It is so distorted that it takes away from the great music Jim Jones is making. I have an idea for the music companies who push the idea the "hot" CDs are better. How about lowering the recorded volume, and I can turn up my sound system to the volume I want, without distorting the music. What a radical idea!

Rock n Roll live! Set volume to 11. A glorious riot. Invigorating and quite mad. Forget the crunch. BUY!
