> Princess & The Frog” b/w “Freak of Nature” by The Jim Jones Revue is released by Punk Rock Blues Records on 29th June 2009 .To celebrate the release, The JJR will be playing a special launch party at The 100 Club on Thursday 4 June with support from Honkeyfinger (unveiling his power trio line up) and a rock’n’roll DJ set from Andrew Weatherall.
> “Princess and The Frog” takes the traditional Grimms fairy tale and spins it on its head with an injection of filthy sleaze. The track kicks off with the distorted broken down honky tonk piano of Elliot Mortimer before the rest of the band crash in sounding like The JBs if they’d swapped guitars for horns. The Jim Jones Revue have been described as sounding like a car crash between Little Richard and The MC5 and “Princess and The Frog” encapsulates this like a no holds barred cage fight between the Georgia Peach and Detroit’s wayward sons.
> The JJR’s last London show at Madame Jo Jo’s in March literally road blocked Soho and this show looks to go the same way. The Jim Jones Revue are a raw, unrefined, rude and lewd beast, embrace them with both arms now!
