Thread: Jesus Jones

    Default Jesus Jones

    I know they are considered a band known mainly for a crummy novelty song but Perverse is one of the greatest albums ever and I would love it if they played Coachella.

    I was one of the six people who bought an advance ticket for the El Rey Theatre 2002 show and I cried when it got cancelled.

    I have everything up through London. Good stuff.

    Please discuss.

    I had to hit their name up on YouTube to see who you were talking about. They would actually be pretty cool to see. I haven't heard Right Here Right Now in a few years.

    Why did they cancel?

    "Right Here, Right Now" is inextricably linked to old Pizza Hut commercials in my mind.

    And dude, MC Scat Cat joining Paula Abdul on stage??? That would be epic.

    And I'm pretty sure if I saw a cartoon cat on stage whilst under hallucinogenic drugs, I would scat my pants.

    I would pay 25 bucks for a pass to that festival. And I would watch the shit out of Seal and Terence Trent D'Arby. Gin Blossoms, too.

    They sucked in 1991 and would suck doubly so now.

    I might have seen them perform with EMF. If not, I saw them at a radio station music festival back in 1991.
