Loud and hard-driving The Jim Jones Revue brings its frenetic style of rock back to Australia with the announcement of headline shows around Falls and Southbound Festivals.
Self-described as “sonic brutality,” The UK’s The Jim Jones Revue is a powerhouse of vintage 50s punk and soul. Whipping crowds into a frenzy with their stripped down, piano-heavy, Jerry Lee Lewis flare.
Their 2010 critically-acclaimed album ‘Burning Your House Down’, produced by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Grinderman), captures the roar of an untamed band at the top of their game. With the microphone shredding wail of the incomparable Jim Jones at the helm, fearlessly spurred by Rupert Orton’s six-string maelstrom, Elliot Mortimer’s savaged ivories and the jackhammer rhythm section of drummer Nick Jones and bassist Gavin Jay, The Jim Jones Revue swing like a giant ball and chain.
The Jim Jones Revue are a rock'n'roll band whose fans are made up of those 'who've seen it all before, and to those who've never seen it at all.’
This is a band that turns every shack it plays into “a mad asylum of rock’n’roll psychosis”
