Making the Jimmie Jones video

Forty years ago this week saw the release of the band’s sixth (and final) single ‘Jimmie Jones’, taken from the ‘Magnets’ LP, which Liberty had decided to commission a promo video for. Clearly they felt that it had a better chance of radio & TV coverage and commercial success compared to the previous single ‘Spiders’. We thought that it would be interesting to focus on the making of the JJ video with anecdotes and memories from those who were there on the day, including all four band members.

Jimmie Jones @ 40

Exactly 40 years ago today, back in 1981, the band released their sixth single ‘Jimmie Jones’ which was the second taken from their ‘Magnets’ album. It was backed with another track from the album, ‘Daylight Titans’, and was far more commercially accessible than its predecessor ‘Spiders’, despite the subject matter of a mass-murdering cult leader!

To boost the promotion of the release, EMI stumped up the cash for a video to be made and there’s a feature about the making of the video coming very soon. The band even secured an appearance on Top Of The Pops with the single which you can watch here. Sadly, neither the video nor the TOTP appearance helped the single rise above that fateful 44 chart position and the band called it a day within a few months of its release. Listen to Jimmie Jones on Spotify here


Birthday wishes!

Together 2021 remix

The band marked their regrouping after a year apart by working on a 2021 remix of the first single ‘Together’ from the last album. Once again, they worked with the original producer Steve Levine on the remix and he added brass making it fresher & edgier. Together is now bigger, badder and brassier!

Update 16/4: now available to download here
