The Jim Jones Revue + John J Presley + Los Pepes
The Jim Jones Revue's eagerly anticipated third studio album 'The Savage Heart' is released by Play It Again Sam/Punk Rock Blues on 15th October and the band head out for a UK headline tour in October.
This event takes place at O2 Academy Birmingham, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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 are: Jim Jones (vocals, guitar), Gavin Jay (bass), Joe Glossop (keys), Phil Martini (drums) and David Page (pedal steel / theremin).

Citing influences from Tom Waits, The Kills, Josh T Pearson & Duke Garwood, John Presley & his band conjure up their own concoction of Blues with a Folk Noir attention to detail. Live, Presley is a powerhouse of fuzz, tone and grandeur alongside moments of delicate song writing and controlled performance. Described by BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart as fulfilling “music’s need for a new dark lord”, Presley has also seen praise from The Guardian, Q Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine, The Independent, The Quietus and many more.

Los Pepes, namesake of a bloodthirsty gang of Columbian vigilantes, are a bloodthirsty, downstroke heavy, blistering garage punk three piece playing big tunes at high volumes. Lost your job, your woman, got nothing to your name? Forget about it and get down with Los Pepes.
