Jim Jones All Stars are back at Future Yard, returning to Birkenhead for the second year running on Saturday 12th October with a riff-fuelled bubbling swamp curse of unholy rhythm.

Tickets on sale now.


Formed by garage godfather Jim Jones, it features The Jim Jones Revue members Gavin Jay and Elliot Mortimer, drummer Aidan Sinclair, veteran punk blues guitarist Carlton Mounsher (The Swamps), and a full horn section (Tenor Saxophonist Stuart Dace and Baritone Saxophonists Tom Hodges and Chuchi Malapersona).

After a midnight offering at the real crossroads in Clarksdale, Mississippi, the band made the pilgrimage to Memphis, Tennessee to record with Memphis Magnetic founder Scott McEwen (JD McPherson, Nick Waterhouse) in May of 2022.

The resulting LP “Ain’ No Peril” is a thick, greasy slab of Rama lama rhythm and blues that highlights some of Jones’s most inspired songwriting ever and features guest appearances from vocal powerhouse Nikki Hill and Oxbow’s Eugene S. Robinson.

“When you’re recording within spitting distance of the Mississippi River, there’s something about that heavy Memphis air that changes the way that you hear the groove and grind,” says Jim Jones. ‘Ain’t No Peril’ captures that feeling and bathes in that magic.
