Album Review: The Jim Jones Revue - Burning Your House Down

While a large proportion of the music community are pushing their style forwards, and another is apparently maintaining theirs in stasis, there will always be musicians taking influence from their distant past. These revivalists dig through the sounds of yesteryear and (with varying degrees of faithfulness to the original material) sew it into their own artistic tapestry. 70s revivalism is always popular with the hard rock and heavy metal set looking to return to a more authentic rock sound.

The different shades of 60s psychedelic guitar-pop have become touchstones for indie rockers and experimentalists alike. Even the 90s, barely 10 years behind us, has been fuelling radio-oriented rock for most of the decade. So how about the 50s? Is it perhaps “too old” for cool kids to truly embrace?
