The Jim Jones Revue brought a little fire and brimstone to their performance at WXPN in Philadelphia.

The British garage-and-blues rock outfit came together in 2008, when veteran rocker Jim Jones met guitarist Rupert Orton at the aptly named "Not the Same Old Blues Crap" club night. They recorded an eponymous debut in 48 hours, inspired by the likes of The Sonics and Little Richard. The group's second release, Burning Your House Down, was produced by Jim Sclavunos, who's worked with Nick Cave projects The Bad Seeds and Grinderman. It's a collection of bluesy riffs and raspy vocals, all infused with primal energy.
