‘Collision Boogie’ is the brand new single by The Jim Jones Revue released on October 7 by Play It Again Sam/Punk Rock Blues Records. Previously unreleased, ‘Collision Boogie’ continues the journey of sonic exploration The JJR embarked on in their critically acclaimed album The Savage Heart, this time starting in Jamaica and ending up in New Orleans.
Jim Jones explains: “Collision Boogie is a sort of personal user’s guide to some of the things that might come crashing into in life. It was originally inspired from hearing a Jamaican dancehall track blaring out of a car in Hackney; but by the time we had an arrangement together, it ended up with more of a New Orleans flavor.”
Produced and mixed by Jim Sclavunos (of Grinderman/Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), the track – and it’s B-side ‘Mind Field’ – was recorded at The Chapel in Lincolnshire and mixed at Edwyn Collins’s West Heath Yard Studios in London.
Following their shows at the Reading and Leeds festivals, The Jim Jones Revue will be touring the UK throughout October. Support duties for the tour will be split between The Amazing Snakeheads and Joe Gideon & the Shark.
