Track of the Day: 'Burning Your House Down'

More

Past TracksBack in the early 1990s there was an amazingly retro psychedelic garage rock outfit from London called Thee Hypnotics. They did their best to distill a perfect blend of the MC5 and Jimi Hendrix. The shouter in that outfit was a fellow named Jim Jones, and he's back in the music game in this new decade. This time, he's fronting The Jim Jones Revue, and it seems he's finally left the '60s behind--and traveled back to the '50s.

Yes, this band is more or less what you'd get if you crossbred vintage Jerry Lee Lewis with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Killer boogie-woogie piano, sleazy power chords on a humbuckered Les Paul, and enough vocal firepower to knock you across the room. The domestic release date for this band's album (also named Burning Your House Down) is August 16, 2011. Look for smoke and paint chips outside a venue near you when they tour the U.S. in September.
