Product Description

 
Jimmy and the Boys were an Australian shock rock and new wave band, active from 1976 to 1982.
 
They pioneered the use of shock theatrics in Australia with an act that revolved around vocalist and contortionist Ignatius Jones and keyboard player Joylene Thornbird Hairmouth. The group recorded two studio albums, Not Like Everybody Else (November 1979) and Teddy Boys Picnic (July 1981). In May 1981 they scored their only Australian top 10 single with’They Won't Let My Girlfriend Talk to Me’. In 1982, shortly after issuing their live album “In Hell with Your Mother”, they disbanded.
 
Australian rock music journalist, Jenny Hunter-Brown, described Jimmy and the Boys as a "high voltage package of filth, glorious filth". According to rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, their performances "mixed S & M trappings, sex shop props, mock rape and other depravities with sub - Zappacsque humour, hard rock, jazz, reggae and disco" and at the end of the 1970s they were "one of the most popular live acts on the Australian scene"
 
The Group recorded two albums for Avenue Records and this is the Best Of.
