Biography

Janie Jones was a famous madam in London in the 1970s. She had been a pop singer in the 1960s, her best results coming from the cackling novelty number “Witches Brew” which peaked at number 46 in the UK charts [1]. The cabaret singer was imprisoned in 1973 for her involvement in ‘controlling prostitutes’.

She is the subject of a song by the Clash called “Janie Jones”, which was released in 1977 on the band’s eponymous debut album.

In 1982, Jones, backed by members of the Clash and the Blockheads and credited as Janie Jones & the Lash, recorded a single, “House of the Ju-Ju Queen” b/w “Sex Machine”, which was produced by Joe Strummer and released the following year.
