announced as well.


By Fred Mills


You know it’s a good day
when we have some Jim Jones news. We’ve profiled the erstwhile Thee
Hypnotics/Black Moses mainman at length at BLURT, and haven’t been shy about reviewing his band’s records, either. Biased? Us? You damn right. Now comes some timely
info, so take heed….


From the band:


Jim Jones Revue’s new album, Burning Your House Down, will be
released through Punk Rock Blues Records on August 16th. [It was released
earlier this year in Europe.] Produced by Jim
Sclavunos (of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds/Grinderman), Burning Your House Down 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. In the last few years, they
have swiftly progressed from their earliest shows in the dive bars of East London to staking their claim as an unstoppable
force in today’s rock ‘n’ roll scene.”
