Attention France! Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind are heading your way to Get Down Get With It for nine shows of unrestrained ramalama in October! Check the dates, make the necessary arrangements and we’ll do the rest!
With the debris barely settled following the release of their critically acclaimed explosive second album,‘CollectiV’, and the near sold-out spring UK and European tour, testifying rockers Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind have announced details of brand new, limited edition 7” coloured vinyl single, ‘Get Down Get With It’. It will be supported by 11 UK gigs in September and October.
Made famous by Little Richard and Slade, ‘Get Down Get With It’, will be limited to just 1000 copies. Released by Ma§onic Records via Cargo on 20 September on pink vinyl and backed with a reading of Link Wray’s ‘Ace Of Spades’, it will be on sale at tour venues and independent record stores.
Pushing the VU meters well into the red, ‘Get Down Get With It’ is arguably the noisiest and rawest record that Jim Jones has ever recorded over an illustrious career that has seen him front the legendary bands Thee Hypnotics, Black Moses and The Jim Jones Revue. What is beyond debate is that it’s a glorious call to ar...

“Jim Jones’ groove is fully maintained in gale force determination, resolution and incision.” Mojo
‘CollectiV’’s variety never slows the album’s constant state of attack. If anything it increases the impact of the singer’s jowl-shaking, balls-out commitment.” Classic Rock

Christmas has come early! We’re thrilled to share with you a preview of our
explosive new album, CollectiV, in the shape of a brand new track, Out Align,
which is being streamed exclusively by top music website The Quietus now.
Just follow the link below and get hopped up on the sound that you love – fuzzed
up and serrated guitars, shredded vocals and the kind of ramalama that’s
impossible to sit still through!
We’re absolutely delighted to announce the release of our second album, CollectiV, a spring tour in support of it and new single, Sex Robot.
Released on 08 March 2019 on Ma§onic Records via Cargo, CollectiV is a veritable sonic feast. Made from only the finest ingredients including rock’n’roll, chain gang chants, mutant soul and gospel, as well as the band’s own heavy lounge, this is the best release yet from Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind.
Collectiv will be preceded by Sex Robot on 22 February.
Giving weight to the album’s name is a stellar cast of guest musicians. These include guitarist Little Barrie, soul singer Sister Cookie, Urban Voodoo Machine’s Paul-Ronney Angel, Future Shape of Sound's Stuart Dace and opera singer Vesna Petresin. CollectiV also finds Jim Jones re-uniting with guitarist Ray Hanson and drummer Phil Smith, his comrades from Thee Hypnotics, for the first time in over 20 years.
Joining the band in spirit is The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, whose 1964 Gibs...
We have just a few more days of work to do on finishing up the record now, there have been some delays in studio time but we're in the home stretch now with just the mastering to take care of. We're also pleased to announce that we've partnered with Cargo who will distribute the record worldwide, so there's a lot more chance you'll see this one in your local record store as well as online.
We haven't set a release date yet but it'll be early 2019. Next up for the band is a Spanish tour in January 2019 - see dates below.
Just an update on where we are now with 'CollectiV.' The album is in the final stages of mixing and, in our humble opinion it's sounding great. We've had some fantastic guest performances that really take the whole record to the next level - it's safe to say we're pretty excited about it and can't wait to get it out to you.
The only downside is that we've fallen too far behind schedule now to get the LP pressed up this year - waiting times for pressing good old-fashioned vinyl can be up to three months! That's what happens when you declare vinyl dead and close all the printing factories... Anyway, it will now be January before we can send out the packages, however, once we get the mixes finished we'll give kickstarter pledgers an exclusive download of some tracks for a taste of what's to come. Look out for an update on that real soon.
Thanks for your support and patience! Good things coming soon
