About

Jesus Jones formed at the end of 1988, and quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting and innovative acts of their time. Catching the mood of the time perfectly, it wasn't long before they started to enjoy worldwide success, signing to EMI, via the newly founded Food Records later to be home to Blur. Their first album, 1989's "Liquidizer" with it's singles "Never Enough" and "Info Freako" saw them tour the UK and Europe, wowing critics and fans with a high-energy live show that was to become the band's trademark. Within a year, things really started to happen. When it was first released, at the start of 1991, their second album "doubt" quickly became a phenomenon.

The band toured "doubt" extensively, including two tours of the US, which sold out before the band had even boarded an airplane. Their next album "Perverse" saw them explore the rock/dance crossover even more and influence other emerging acts such as The Prodigy. Further albums followed in 1997 ("Already"), and 2001's self-released "London".

And now they're back. They never stopped playing together; it was just that real life seemed to get in the way. Sometime, in 2004, with a change in management, and a newfound enthusiasm, they decided the time had come to fall in love with being in a band all over again. Since then, things have been very busy indeed they released a brand new compilation of rarities and unheard tracks called "The Collection" their first album release for almost ten years. In 2014, each of the bands four EMI albums were reissued and expanded, delighting their fans with a huge amount of rare and unheard material.

After nearly three decades together, 2015 sees the band with exactly the same lineup as when they formed making them somewhat of a rarity amongst their contemporaries. As singer Mike Edwards explains: "it may be a bit of a cliche to say we do it for fun now, but it couldn't be more apt we've been friends and band mates for so long, that it just feels right, being onstage, all of us together, playing the songs that have shaped our lives It's a fantastic feeling!"
