Jim Jones and The Righteous Mind is a Rock n Roll band from London  that was formed about two years ago ..

The first creative sessions and recordings began immediately after the last concert of The Jim Jones Revue (my previous band).
The Righteous Mind are interested in all things Rock n Roll, which for me means the true spirit of independence ..
I am not interested in Rock and ‘Role’ ..
Role play is not Rock n Roll ..

Reach Around Rodeo Clowns Release New Video, Your Vote Counts!

Posted by Dee-Ann On September - 25 - 2015

reachThe Reach Around Rodeo Clowns follow up their critically acclaimed song and video for “King Of The Slot Car Track” with their latest video offering, “I’m Obsessed”. “King Of The Slot Car Track” won over fans with extensive radio airplay and caught the attention of award-winning author, Stephen King, who tweeted about the song and video as part as well his love of the band’s name. “King Of The Slot Car Track” also won a Boonie International Film Festival nomination for the video!

Now that they have your attention, The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns hope this new video for “I’m Obsessed” is equally frightening and thrilling. Never one to shy away from pushing the envelope, the lyrics deal with the obsessions of a stalker. Fans of late night horror movies will appreciate their take on the subject matter. The faint-of-heart might opt for watching classic Lawrence Welk videos instead. Check it out

Bat City Surfers Interview

Posted by drew On February - 27 - 2015

bcs1The Bat City Surfers are the new kings of urban psycho-surf! Pumping out hard,hitting, horror tinged rock ‘n’ roll the band is quickly becoming one of the more popular local acts in Austin, Texas. Climb aboard our coffin shaped board and find out what this band is all about! Today we were lucky enough to grab front man Joey Muerto for a quick interview. Surf’s up ya’ll!

I know you’re a big comic book nerd like myself. So what is the origin story of Bat City Surfers?

JM: I guess our origin story is that we come from a world where man-kind evolved from bats and, after joining forces to create the ultimate surf-punk experience, we accidentally transported ourselves into this dimension during a recording experiment gone horribly wrong! This was back in 2011 and after adapting to this atmosphere and your yellow, sun we played our first gig in January, 2012.

Koffin Kats- Born of the Motor

Posted by Anita On November - 26 - 2013

Here it is! The latest album from Detroit’s Koffin Kats and what can I say? It fucking kicks so much ass it’s insane! Which is how it should be for a psychobilly band! The rhythm section is incredibly and absolutely solid, the guitar riffs are catchy as all hell and have the right amount of metal influence, and the over the top dramatic style of singing all of it creates the dark and twisted environment in which these songs live. It has to be mentioned, Vic’s voice is pitch perfect for this creepy style of music, it’s a dark opera of real life horror. Born of the Motor will definitely take you on a fucking ride starting from the first note of “All of Me is Gone”. “Lighting has struck once again”. Holy shit, no kidding! I can’t help but play air drums and sing along to this baby! And I am by no means, ashamed to admit it! This is what I wish every single album I listened to made me do. Why can’t they all be this good? And so on it goes with the next song “Under a Blue Sky”. “Giving Blood” is damn creepy in the best of ways and it’s impossible to not tap your toes at least. At least! Same with “Devil Tales” and you got to love the guitar on this one! So many awesome songs on this one including “The Team” which starts as a 50s style ballad and soon intertwines with Koffin Kats brand of epic punkabilly. It’s done so seamlessly and works so damn well. “Twist Apart” is so damn catchy and you can feel the music circling around you. The ground spins as the singing and music do. It just moves and feels so damn alive for a song about death. “Round and round you wanna go”. “Goodbye Blues” starts slow but ends with a bang! And yes, once again the drums provide a solid heartbeat. The guitar riffs have a nice hint of metal but not too much. Really words do it no justice, you have to take a listen to this work yourself.
It’s good to the last note ending with “Gone To See The World” which is a sweet Hawaiian influenced ode to the open road, to seeing the world. Something this hard working band has experience in to be sure. I must add that I think it’s brilliant that they explore the horror of real life and inject that aspect into most of their songs. It would be incredible with there were more bands like this one. I can only hope the Koffin Kats will be here with us to blow our minds for a while longer.

The Brains- Monster Within

Posted by Anita On April - 16 - 2013

Ladies and ghouls, are you ready for the new Brains album? You better be because here it is! Loud, fast and sweating blood from every pore these Montreal psychos are back with a vengeance. Among the songs that especially stand out to me are “Misery” which has nice and chunky rockabilly guitar riffs with the power of a lawnmower complete with a tighter than tight rhythm section composed of Pat Kadaver’s consistent drumbeats and Colin the Dead’s clacking stand up bass. And the icing on the cake is Rene De La Muerte’s haunting crooning and a chorus you’ll want to sing along to immediately. “The Damned” is amazing too with its musical changes throughout the song including parts where the guitar starts and stops in a brusque manner. As can be witnessed in this album, variety is definitely the spice of life. “Bleed” has some lovely upright bass work in its middle which shows off what the instrument can do with plenty of panache. “Electrik Shock” is insanely catchy and once again, you’ll find yourself tapping your toes and singing along even if you don’t know the lyrics yet. “Rest in Pieces” can only be described as epic psychobilly, images of classic horror movies like those pictured on the cover will flood your brain. “Cucaracha in Leather” is an amazingly well done instrumental interlude which to me is reminiscent of Rev. Horton Heat. You better believe that’s a compliment! “Devil in Disguise” and “Lies” will also have you shouting along with the chorus and shaking your culo if you happen to have a pulse.”Rolling Down” is love at first note, a song about the joys of the open road that instantly transmits that joy through music and lyrics. I must add though that I miss the songs in Spanish and French which also added something different to the mix. C’est la vie. But this is truly a solid work of horror punkabilly madness that is worth every cent in your moth bitten pocket. The blend of punk rock, rockabilly, surf, latin, and whatever the hell else they’re throwing in there is refreshing from the get go and will hold your attention till the last note is played. The absolutely gorgeous album artwork has to be commented on as well. It works perfectly with the music contained within the CD. Of course, you will always win me over with old school tattoo flash inspired art and a cover that looks like a classic horror flick poster complete with a tattooed babe in a red 50s style bathing suit. Perfect! Don’t wait another second and get yours today!

Jamie Bahr on Danger*Cakes Year Two!

Posted by Bunny On November - 18 - 2011

On Halloween of 2010, a new band emerged on the Austin scene.  Fusing elements of  psychobilly, doo-wop, big band swing, and classic soul the band quickly became a fixture in the Austin rockabilly scene.  The all-female group ended their  first year with a bang, joining the likes of Mad Sin and Devil Doll at the 2nd annual Freakshow Festival.   Now, with October behind us, I thought I’d play some catch with Danger*Cake’s buxom frontwoman Jamie Bahr.

13 Black Coffins–Where the Dead Girls Go!

Posted by drew On June - 14 - 2011

Psychobilly is one of those been there, done that kind of genres.  Jaded fans start to feel like they’ve seen it all.  How does Houston’s 13 Black Coffins respond? By amping up the intensity. Already known as a ferocious live band, their new CD proves they can translate that rockabilly thunder into other mediums with ease.

Their sound is heavier than other bands in their genre. Not a jazzy kind of heavy, not even a metal kind of heavy.  I’m talking crazy, Iron Butterfly, psychedelic kind of heavy.  The sort of heavy that leaves you a little numb, but in a good way.  Front woman Melane Torres has an authoritative growl than brings to mind Tina Turner.  Throw in some surprisingly funky slap bass and you’ve got a pretty tasty stew.
