Jim Bob @ Cherry Red Downloads


D.I.S.C.O.GRAPHY
 
Jim's solo releases to date
 
‘It's a Humpty Dumpty Thing’
Label: Cherry Red

Recorded in London, Hampshire and Cornwall with a full band including a 12 voice teenage choir, the new Jim Bob album 'A Humpty Dumpty Thing' began life when Jim was asked to write a song for Mark Ravenhill's hit pantomime 'Dick Whittington & His Cat' last year. Jim wrote six songs. Two ended up in the Barbican's Christmas show.

The others were adapted to form the beginnings of this new Jim Bob LP. The most obvious Dick Whittington trace is left in the song 'Cartoon Dad', with its chorus of 'I thought the streets were paved with gold / I always thought my fortune flowed / all along the River Thames / from Westminster to Southend into the sea'.

Other songs feature a man whose only friends are his Ikea office furniture, an overweight and lonely drunk running the London Marathon, a love song from a soldier sent overseas and a blog written by God.

Initial limited copies of the album will come with the twelve thousand word Jim Bob mini novel 'Word Count'. Set in the not too distant future when all art is commissioned by the State, the story follows a man with writer's block chosen to write an 80 thousand word novel or face a jail term.

‘Goodnight Jim Bob’
Label: The Ten Forty Sound

Jim's second solo epic. Released May 2003.

Tracklisting:
1. fathers against handguns - 2mins 36 secs
An almost goth guitar sound on this up tempo opener. A call to disarm.
2. cruel - 3 mins 6 secs
A country feel and rhythm, slags off the human race. Sampled animal noises
3. he - 4 mins 10 secs
A slow moving reply to Charles Aznavour's 'She'. Suggests the poisoning of a loved one. DJs beware the false ending.
4. krakatoa! - 2 mins 38 secs
Written as a duet for Jim and Tom Jones. A song for fans of both Science and the sometimes less popular geography.
5. in the future all this will be yours - 3 mins 8 secs
A simple pop song about love and hard drugs.
6. when you were my woman - 2 mins 42 secs
Just Mr Bob and his battered old acoustic singing the praises of a lost love. Mentions 1970's paraffin.
7. war is the new rock 'n' roll - 2 mins 49 secs
A Tamla-ish foot stomper about modern day soldiering. Sampled helicopters and a jet passing.
8. julie's secret - 5 mins 2 secs
An epic tale of star crossed love. Never was a story of more woe than this of Julie and her Romeo
9. i'm all alone (and everything sucks) - 2 mins 11 secs
Jim's girlfriend says it sounds like David Essex
10. cool - 3 mins 9 secs
Drum machines and acoustic guitars, goes all jazz at the end. There's a swearword (fucking) in the first verse.
11. come outside - 3 mins 26 secs
Not the Arfur Mullard classic but a slow burning tune about agrophobia - the fear of agro. A great summer song.
12. you can't take it with you - 3 mins 57 secs
The big finish. There has to be a big finish. Fades beautifully.
