    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". In November 1979 the group released their first studio album, Not Like Everybody Else, which was delayed after Astor Records decided it was "too obscene".[1] It appeared on Avenue Records – a newly formed imprint by Festival Records "to handle Jimmy and the Boys".[1][2] . In May 1980 the band were featured on the cover of RAM (Rock Australia Magazine) which described the group, "[t]heir performances featured politics, simulated sex and violent humour. Their stage antics involved the use of props, such as setting fire to dolls and maiming an effigy of [then-Prime Minister] Malcolm Fraser".

    Jimmy & The Boys Biography

    Jimmy and the Boys were an Australian New Wave band, active from 1975 to 1982, best known for their incredibly violent stage shows. The act revolved around vocalist Ignatius Jones and keyboard player Joylene Hairmouth - a couple of friends from Cranbrook and Riverview, exclusive private schools. Since 1976 the duo had been surrounded by various combinations of backing musicians, the constant guts and gore probably accounting for at least some of the member turnover.

    Their performance, their visual image, their on and offstage behaviour were all carefully designed to elicit the maximum level of shocked outrage from a public long since bored with the standard media fare of moral decadence. Sadomasochism, transvestitism, self-mutilation, drug abuse, inebriation, simulated sex and mock rape all took starring roles in Jimmy And The Boys' blisteringly paced tribute to cultural degeneracy. The band was known for often causing audience riots in the more homophobic venues they played.

    Though the group only recorded two studio albums, Not Like Everybody Else from 1980 and 1981's Teddy Boys' Picnic, they were one of the most popular live acts in Australia. In 1981 they scored their only top 10 single with "They Won't Let My Girlfriend Talk to Me", written by Split Enz leader, Tim Finn.

    The double-jointed, bisexual Jones was born of Spanish parents in Manila. It was obvious even in the 70s that if he were not fronting a band he would certainly be a celebrated figure in another avenue of the performing arts (he went on to starring roles in musical theatre, cabaret and on national television as well as being actively involved in areas of fine art and dance).

    Jimmy and the Boys disbanded in January 1982 and, shortly after, Jones moved to the theatre stage, playing the dual roles of Eddie and Dr. Scott in the Australian revival of The Rocky Horror Show. At the end of 1982 the band temporarily reformed for a national tour, which resulted in a live album, In Hell with Your Mother. Following the second and final break up of the band, Warner Bros. Records signed Jones to a six-album record deal, of which little actually materialised, although Jones had a near-hit with his 1982 single "Like a Ghost".

    They definitely took a page out of Alice Coopers book, theatrically speaking. They were an outrageous band in their day. I remember being in a car with some mates, sniffing amyl, with this lp blaring on the stereo when I'd just turned 17. It left an indelible impression on my young mind. The band openly flaunted their homosexuality whilst it was still a criminal offence. Joylene was a garish trans person.

    That definitely took guts back in the day. I'll make sure to give this a listen when I can.
