THE JIM JONES REVUE at the JAZZ CAFE
Phil Alexander’s introductory testimony - “Please welcome the greatest rock and roll band in the world right now: The Jim Jones Revue” - has a ring of hyperbole about it, but after witnessing what comes next I challenge you to find a more exhilarating show than the one put on by these manic grizzled preachers.
Full throttle, foot to the floor, unrelenting, incendiary rock and roll to the max. And some. And a bit more. They don’t so much hit you with great balls of fire as knock your head clean off with the entire force of the sun dropping from the sky.
Had there been room to shake my moneymaker, I would’ve. Brilliant. That’s it.
