Burning Your House Down

It 's an old rock-biz cliché: The album's cool, but the band is better live. In fact, the latest record from London's Jim Jones Revue is exactly how their electric rhythm-and-blues sounds in a club: the Rolling Stones' early- Seventies murk with frantic barroom piano, guitars set at MC5-level distortion and singer Jim Jones roaring like he's got Little Richard stuck in his larynx. The clout also comes with choruses that demand you shout along – like the title threat and "Shoot First" ("Ask questions later!" Jones adds right away). See the Jim Jones Revue onstage. Ignite your home with this.

Listen to "Shoot First":
