Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind
Singer/ guitarist Jim Jones’s distinctive musical history has spanned several incarnations including The Jim Jones Revue, Black Moses and Thee Hypnotics. Now with his new band, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, Jones and crew are sailing further into dark musical waters in search of rare and exotic beasts.
Taking the band name from a book of social psychology, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind – the latest manifestation of Jones's ever-evolving sonic vision – were in the recording studio conjuring a new collection of songs a mere five days after The Jim Jones Revue had played their last encore at their final sold out show at London’s Forum at the end of 2014.
Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind made their live debut at the Avaterium Festival, in France on 23rd May 2015. To date they have released three EP’s, their debut album recorded at London’s Space Eko East Studios is set for release in 2017.
Their heady sonic brew is eagerly anticipated recently described in The Independent as «Seductive, slow -burn narco rock» and by The Quietus as «A filthy, swaggering rocker» Jim Jones and The Righteous Mind step on to the stage.
Roll over the Revue it's time for The Righteous Mind.
Forthcoming single 'Boil Yer Blood' seals the deal. A filthy, swaggering rocker that circles in the same orbit as Grinderman.
Aldecide, recalls The Bad Seeds at their prime.
Boil Yer Blood ramps up the raunch with whisky-soured hellaciousness to spare.
Vive Le Rock
A truly mesmerising swampy Beast.
