Beasts Of Bourbon/Jim Jones Revue, Underworld, Camden 26.7.2007

A bunch of Swamp Rock aficionados gathered at the (smoke free) pit that is The Underworld last night to pay homage to the reformed Beasts of Bourbon launch their new album, Little Animals. With superb support from the straight out fifties rock of The Jim Jones Revue, Tex, Spencer and the boys were on blistering form. Age hasn't wearied Tex, his face is slightly less gaunt, but he still belts it out like a wounded animal. Anyway, it was loud and torrid, with quite a bit of new stuff, which stood up quite well with the classics "Dropout" and "Chase The Dragon" that really got the crowd hammering.

My ears are still ringing from the front row onslaught.

Tex is certainly reformed. We saw him last year at the Guggenheim in Bilbao. This is a rocker at an art gallery, at 10am, on a Monday morning. Rock n fucken Roll eh?

But Holly nearly creamed her pants when she got to meet him. Seemed like a nice enough bloke.
