The Jim Jones Revue – Artist Information | The Camden Crawl 2012

The Jim Jones Revue are described as sounding like a car crash between Little Richard and The MC5. They play supercharged rock’n’roll inspired by The Killer, The Georgia Peach and of course The Memphis Flash and the deranged sons of Detroit. The ‘Revue were formed in 2007 by Jim Jones and Rupert Orton on a mission to strip rock’n’roll right back to the bone. They enlisted three other London hoodlums, Elliot Mortimer, Nick Jones and Gavin Jay and together they became The Jim Jones Revue. The JJR released their debut self titled album in September 2008 to critical acclaim and followed it up with “Here To Save Your Soul” , a collection of the JJR’s singles released in October 2009.
