Jim Jones Revue

Dan Coxon: The new album sounds like the perfect soundtrack to a barroom brawl, preferably filmed by Quentin Tarantino. Do you have to work hard at getting that kind of intensity on the record, or does it simply come naturally?

Jim Jones: Most music doesn’t mean anything until you invest some intensity into it – so that is a given. But the real trick is to try and get that intensity but also the keep the maximum degree of swing in there at the same time!

DC: Twelve bar blues feels like something of a forgotten format, maybe due to the likes of Status Quo degrading it in the Eighties. What drew you back to it?

JJ: It’s true, it’s a pretty fine line you have to tread to avoid falling into the same old cliches… but if you come at it from the right angle, you can find that the form still has some wiggle room. When you hear early Little Richard recordings they still sound vital… It’s not the form, it’s the presentation.

The Jim Jones Revue and Kid Congo Powers brought their intensity to Brooklyn on Saturday night (9/10) for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Des Roar. Pictures are in this post. If you missed it, their ongoing tour comes back to the NYC-area on 9/18 at Maxwell’s. More pictures from Brooklyn below…
