"A depraved merging of screaming vocals, rama-lama-lama riffing, and Georgia Peach-styled pounding piano runs." – MOJO   London-based powerhouse quintet The Jim Jones Revue blast into 2010 with a string of live gigs, commencing with a headlining appearance at Mojo Club at The Jazz Café on Thursday 4 February, followed by a tour of the UK and Ireland from March through April, as well as a slot at the forthcoming SXSW in Texas.   Last year saw The Jim Jones Revue hit the ground running on the back of their self-titled debut album and subsequent singles collection Here To Save Your Soul. This year, in between live dates, The Jim Jones Revue will be recording a new album with producer Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Grinderman). Sclavunos (whose production credits include The Horrors and Gogol Bordello) will chaperone the unruly combo to Assault & Battery 2 studios in late February.   Among 2009’s many highlights was a support slot with The Dead Weather (at Jack White’s personal invitation), selling out all their headline London shows, several live radio sessions (including Marc Riley, Mark Lamarr, Tom Robinson and XFM’s John Kennedy) and a relentless UK/European live schedule.   Tipped by MOJO magazine as one of the bands to watch in 2010, this year looks set to surpass the success The Jim Jones Revue have enjoyed to date.
