Among many highlights was a sold out show at the historic 100 Club in London in June which saw scores of unlucky punters turned away as the venue was filled to bursting point with a queue stretching down Oxford Street to Tottenham Court Road tube station.  The JJR have also played live sessions on radio shows for Mark Lamarr, Marc Riley, Tom Robinson and have long been championed by Steve Lamacq  who after coming to The 100 Club show was so moved he made an extraordinary five minute public broadcast on his 6 Music show the next day to demand that Jack White offer the JJR a support slot on whatever project he next had touring, this plea has now come to fruition with Jim Jones Revue invited to support Dead Weather at the Forum on 30th October. > > The Jim Jones Revue are fast building a solid  international word of mouth fan base that stretches across Europe from Oslo to Porto, a result of relentless touring that in the last twelve months has seen them play festivals, shows and tours in the UK, France (where thanks to some prime-time tv spots and major festival appearences they are fast becoming nationalcelebrities), Spain, Holland, Germany, Sweden,Portugal , Slovenia, Ireland,  Belgium and Norway. Among the JJR fanbase more well known converts include Mick Jones, Tony James, Bobby Gillespie, Noel Gallagher,  Jim Scalvunos, Jon Spencer, Bob Harris and Gem Archer. > > The Jim Jones Revue are dedicated to the tradition and continuation of fine booty-shaking, mind-shimmering rhythm and blues. It's as if Little Richard, the Queen of rock 'n roll Herself, shat out these fine boys from some blessed place and sent them into our world to do good. Get yrself some healing! Jon Spencer (JSBX / Heavy Trash) > > "The Jim Jones Revue are the real deal: a rip-snorting progeny of Raw Power  & Little Richard, they deliver unabashed classic rock n' roll at a stampeding tempo with whiplash rhythms, blistering riffage and over the top vein popping vocals that would make King Kong's head explode. Pure sweaty pleasure." Jim Sclavunos (Bad Seeds/Grinderman) > > Witness the sonic brutality of  The Jim Jones Revue as special guests of  Dead Weather on 30th October at The Forum, London. > Their mini album Here To Save Your Soul is out on November 2ndŠŠ play at maximum volume  and listen as your home is reduced to rubble in minutes!!!! > >
