The Jones “S/T” EP

TheJonesEPThe JONES are a new rock’n’roll band from Paris, France, but these guys are no newcomers since Thierry Jones played in BAD LOSERS, Laurent Ciron used to be in the DOGS and the rhytm section Gerard Coulondre and Rudy Serairi also shared stages with quite a few rock bands!
4 songs on black vinyl with a nice Rocky Horrror-ish art-work. On side 1, “Weapons of Mass Distraction” is a catchy 70s rock’n’roll song with glammy vocals and rhythm’n’blues horns while “Bee Sting & Bankruptcy” is a rock and rollin’ STONES/QUIREBOYS kind of tune!
Side 2 takes us somewhere between “Sympathy For The Devil”, DR. FEELGOOD and MINK DEVILLE with “I Want Your Lips”, and offers us a great cover of HUEY “Piano” SMITH‘s “Sea Cruise” (mostly known because of 1959’s FRANKIE FORD‘s version.)
The JONES are not only gentlemen with good tastes, they must also be quite entertaining to watch live since every member in the band sings, but before being able to see them (if you haven’t yet), you should definitely get this fine piece of vinyl./Laurent C.
