JIM JONES GETS RIGHTEOUS ON LONDON
Rising from the wreckage of the Jim Jones Revue, JIM JONES & THE RIGHTEOUS MIND have announced their first London show.
They play Hoxton Bar & Grill on Tuesday 30 June as a celebration of their debut single ‘Boil Yer Blood’, due for release in August. Jim Sclavunos, producer and Bad Seeds / Grinderman drummer, will perform DJ duties on the night. Tickets are £10 and are available here.
The Righteous Mind include JJR bassist Gavin Jay, alongside ex-Tokyo Dragons drummer Phil Martini, Joe Glossop on keys and David Page on pedal-steel. Jim corralled them into the studio for the single sessions a mere five days after the JJR’s landmark farewell show at London’s Forum last October.
The band have made a stunning video for the song ’1000 Miles From The Sure’ which you can check out here.
