Jim Jones Revue Bursting with Enthusiasm for the Hummingbird

Best New Bands of 2010 Hummingbird Award: #5 Jim Jones Revue

Seriously, when I first listened to the promo from the label, I thought it was a re-issue. I listened again and swore it was something I had a vinyl from 1962. Then I did a Google search for Jim Jones Revue and I was blown away. I downloaded everything I could find, called my Arizona Turk, published as much as I could and spread the word. This was by far the most energetic, speaker busting, kick your ass band of 2010. If Little Richard, Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis were blended together with a 5 Red Bulls, poured over ice and served, you’d get Jim Jones Revue. Don’t adjust your speakers/headphones, just take off your shoes and prepare for a body changing experience. Jim Jones Revue deserve a permanent place on your iPod, vinyl shelf and iTunes account.
