Jim Jones All Stars Announce Spring Tour In Support Of 7” Single ‘Gimme The Grease’. The explosive new project from garage rock godfather Jim Jones takes to the road to foul up your town! Jim Jones All Stars have announced details of their long-awaited, full-length UK and European tour in support of their new 7” single, ‘Gimme The Grease’, out now on Ako-Lite Records.
This is the first physical bite of their forthcoming album, ‘Ain’t No Peril’, which is scheduled for an autumn release. Returning to his natural environments of the stage and analogue studio, Jim Jones cements his position as the Grand Poo-Bah of red, raw rock’n’roll and the facilitator of illicit sonic thrills.
Having spearheaded garage rock pioneers Thee Hypnotics, and international favourites The Jim Jones Revue, Jim is at a point in his career where he is drawing from past, present, and future. Joined by Jim Jones Revue members Gavin Jay (bass) and Elliot Mortimer (piano and keys), drummer Chris Ellul (The Heavy), veteran punk blues guitarist Carlton Mounsher (The Swamps), and the threeway tenor/baritone sax attack of Stuart Dace, Chuchi Malapersona and Tom Hodges, this is the filthy grind and sonic ramalama that you’ve all been waiting for!
Having made a midnight offering at Clarksdale, Mississippi's legendary crossroads in the Deep South, ‘Gimme The Grease’ was recorded at Memphis Magnetic studios in Memphis, Tennessee – and it’s impossible not to feel that Southern alchemy oozing from this music.
“When you’re recording within spitting distance of the Mississippi river, there’s something about that heavy Memphis air that changes the way that you hear the groove and grind,” says Jim Jones. “’Gimme The Grease’ captures that feeling and bathes in that magic.”
