The Jim Jones Revue is an English garage rock band comprising Jim Jones (formerly of Thee Hypnotics), Rupert Orton, Gavin Jay, Nick Jones and Henri Herbert (a recent replacement for the band's former pianist Elliot Mortimer). The band compare their sound to artists such as The Birthday Party, MC5, Johnny Thunders, The Gun Club, The Sonics and Little Richard.
The band was formed after Jim Jones met Rupert Orton at his Not The Same Old Blues Crap club night in London. In 2008, the band recorded their self-titled debut album in just 48 hours, in a rehearsal space in Camden Town, London. The album was released on 8 September 2008 via Punk Rock Blues Records.
A collection of singles and B-sides entitled Here To Save Your Soul was released on 5 October 2009. The band have since recorded their second album, Burning Your House Down, which was produced by Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Grinderman. In interview Jim Jones has explained that they also chose Sclavunos for his work with bands like Sonic Youth and The Cramps.
This second album is scheduled for release on 16 August 2011 and will be released through Punk Rock Blues Records / PIAS Recordings.
On September 2, 2010, the band previewed Burning Your House Down at London nightclub Madame Jojo's in front of a sold-out audience, which included Oasis singer Liam Gallagher as well as members of Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
They appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS-TV) on 7 September 2011.
