The Jim Jones Revue is a UK garage rock and roll band composed of Jim Jones, Rupert Orton, Henri Herbert, Gavin Jay and Nick Jones.
The band was formed after Jim Jones met Rupert Orton (the brother of folk singer Beth Orton) at his Not The Same Old Blues Crap club night in London. In 2008, the band recorded their self-titled debut album in just 48 hours, in a rehearsal space in Camden Town, London. The album was released on 8 September 2008 via Punk Rock Blues Records.
A collection of singles and B-sides entitled Here To Save Your Soul was released on 5 October 2009. The band have since recorded their second album, Burning Your House Down, which was produced by Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Grinderman. In interview Jim Jones has explained that they also chose Sclavunos for his work with bands like Sonic Youth and The Cramps.
This second album was released on 16 August 2011 through Punk Rock Blues Records / PIAS Recordings.
On September 2, 2010, the band previewed Burning Your House Down at London nightclub Madame Jojo's in front of a sold-out audience, which included Oasis singer Liam Gallagher as well as members of Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
