The Jim Jones Revue

Brush off the old snake-skin jacket and have yourself a bloodied steak dinner, because Jim and his crew are about to rip rock n roll a new arsehole and you're going to stomp a hole in your blue suede boots.

This is the sort of Stooges, Grinderman (it's produced by Bad Seed and Grinderman Jim Sclavunos) and Jon Spencer-style rock that makes you want to get a neck tattoo and star in a Tarantino flick.

A gravel-scream Lemmy vocal, tight as hellfire guitar licks and rolling, balls-out Jerry Lee piano lines are familiar to fans of the Revue's two offerings since forming in London in 2008 - but this time they dredge a few lakes for the filthy corpses of glam rock, slave-blues hollers and doo-wop before parading them across the stage.

A late contender for album of the year for sure.
