    Out of all the rock ‘n’ roll sleaze bands in Hollywood during the 1980s, the Joneses are recognized as coming first and being the toughest and most honest of them all. This no-nonsense group of trash rockers, led by the charismatic Jeff Drake, were a hot-blooded mix of the New York Dolls, Johnny Thunders, and Eddie Cochran, too glam for punk and too punk for rock. If the term “trashy rock ‘n’ roll” could only apply to one band, The Joneses would take the label in spades.

    Meanwhile, house favorites Prima Donna are celebrating the release of their brand new release on Acetate records, After Hours, which is destined to be the rock ‘n’ roll release of the year.

    Eddie and the Hot Rods began life in 1976, when four teenagers from Southend on Sea got together playing their own style of fast, energetic rock ‘n’ roll / R ‘n’ B. Soon, they became a big hit on the London pubrock scene. Catching the eyes and ears of the music press and major record companies, they were soon signed up by Island Records and went on to have three hit albums and four top forty UK singles including the hit ‘Do Anything You Wanna Do.” In the year 2000, the band were asked to take part in a 76-date tour of the UK alongside Dr. Feelgood, John Otway and The Hamsters. The tour was a great success and the band have been back in demand ever since. In 2003, after recruiting Richard Holgarth on guitar, they recorded an album of brand new songs, “Better Late Than Never,” which was snapped up in France by Bad Reputation Records and then by Voiceprint Records in the UK.
