Live review: Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind
Venue: London 229
The past is laid to rest and a God-fearing future beckons.
Maybe it’s that characteristic, lacerating scream that brings the full pelt of Boil Yer Blood to a close? Or perhaps it’s the sleazy grind of Base Is Loaded, a song that that stiffens certain areas and moistens others as it likely soundtracks Satan’s own burlesque revue? Or it could well be the menacing chain-gang a cappella of Take Everything?
It’s all these things, and a little bit more, that tonight sees Jim Jones And The Righteous Mind emerge from the shadow of the singer’s previous band to establish their own identity.
