After highlighting the Jim Jones Revue on here I got a heads up that pre JJR there was the band Black Moses who also rocked out at max power. All amps to eleven sort of thing.
Returning the favour I threw in that before Black Moses, whom I hadn’t heard of, there was Thee Hypnotics.
If there was ever a band that was out of space and time then it was these guys. Critical plaudits and blistering live shows sometimes don’t translate over to mass acceptance and these guys proved it.
Plundering the harder edge of the seventies they took all the best shizzaz from the Detroit scene and dragged it kicking and screaming over to the UK and beat the shit out of it then released it on an album called ‘Come down heavy’.
So here’s the genesis of The Jim Jones Revue in all its glory, but in all honesty it‘s worth checking out everything that Jim Jones has fronted.
