Been awhile since I've written one of these posts. That's because I hadn't heard anything super-inspiringly-new in that time.
The Jim Jones Revue rocked and rolled right into my unsuspecting little head.
A musicphile friend of ours, C, saw them over in England and posted about it on Facebook. Chuckles pays more attention to the music videos that our friends post on there than I do. He'll click on anything. Thank goodness he did!
Check THIS shit out. Makes all the hairs on my arms stand up.
As I've said before, I'm a 'singer girl'. If the singer catches my eyes and ears, I'm hooked. Jim Jones is like Jerry Lee Lewis, Jack White, Iggy Pop and Professor Snape all rolled into one deliciously explosive package.
And speaking of ear candy, you sure don't hear piano much in rock and roll music anymore. Not like this anyway. I may be a singer girl, but the key-work in these songs really steals my attention.
They're playing in the UK and Europe right now. If I were you, I'd run, not walk, and go see them. Apparently they're coming back to the States after the European leg of their tour. If they play anywhere near me, I'm going. You'll see jet-trails behind me.
Jim Jones Revue is old time rock and roll on steroids. I totally drank the Kool-Aid.
