THE JIM JONES REVUE - A.... Review


Blazing their own trail across the Rock'n'Roll wasteland we are currently living in, or sailing their own course across the rock'n'roll seas, leaving a storm in their wake. if you'd rather. There's no one else out there doing this with such power and passion. The Jim Jones Revue are in a class of their own, there are lessons to be learned and they are the preachers.
This isn't revivalist or revisionist, this is revolutionary; a linage from Jerry Lee Lewis through to the MC5, then onto The Cramps and Nick Cave. The Jim Jones Revue have taken rock'n'roll to a new sonic level. The blue print has been torn up and re-drawn.  The rule book has been burned.  If the Devil has all the best tunes, then he/she has a few missing.
The Savage Heart is a different beast to their previous album Lets Burn The House Down; it's slightly more subtle and subdued in places, if The Jim Jones Revue do subtle and subdued? It's a dark, stark, nasty, brutal and beautiful animal of an album. From the pounding piano and primal howl of Where Did Da Money Go? To the mutant gospel of 7 Times Around The Sun, this is foot taping, skull krushing, gnarled and gritty Rock'n'Roll with a soul.
In these trouble torn times it's well worth a crisp or crumpled Ten Pound note of your hard earned money. Music to cause trouble to!  

"What's yours is mine and what's mine I keep, I took the whole thing when you was asleep" - Jim Jones Revue

Not sure what the exchange rate is Kostas, but if it's 100Euros yer talking about, that works out to £80 for a ticket, which is a pretty expensive gig.
