“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is the slick, sartorially elegant bassist for the latest raw and garage rocking band behind Jim Jones – Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind…the music is eerie, itchy and restless, like the Gun Club, Birthday Party, The Flesh Eaters or Jon Spencer circa “Crypt Style”, and it’s this man that lays down a lot of the sinister groove – Mr. Gavin Jay!

Formed as a new band after the dissolution of the Jim Jones Revue, the Righteous Mind have had 2 EPs, and a full length is on the way…given that the name Jim Jones is a guarantee of quality, I can’t wait. They are the definition of a Velvet Sheep band, and the kind we’d have loved to have headline one of our VS events back in the day at the Whitechapel…

Here’s the 2nd EP “Aldecide”

While I shuffle nervously for the debut album, Gavin doesn’t disappoint with his song choice, so without further ado, it’s over to our man choosing another VS garage hero:

“Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds – Conjure Man

Beguiling rhythms pulsate as Kid draws on his colourful history to spin exotic tales from the underworld. Droll, muttered incantations lull you into a hypnogogic trance as The Pink Monkey Birds summon swamp fuzz demons to take possession of your soul.”

CHEERS GAVIN! JIM JONES AND THE RIGHTEOUS MIND ARE STILL ON TOUR…SEE BELOW…CATCH THEM THIS WEEK IN CARDIFF AND BEDFORD…
