Note: This event has finished

 

GLAMOROUS, SLEAZY, SEXY, TURRENTINE
JONES WAS BROUGHT TOGETHER BY A
MUTUAL LOVE OF SOUTHERN BLUES AND
STAX RECORDS.


Members: Julian Neville (vocals, guitar) / Thomas
Scotson (organ) / Rich Watts (drums)
The anchors of the Turrentine Jones sound are
Julian Neville, whose slicing, fuzzed riffs draw a
comparison to Steve Cropper, and Thomas
Scotson, who provides much of the groove with
his floating organ lines. In 2009, Neville moved to
England from his native Australia and began
searching for musicians, where he met (now
former) drummer Chris Carcamo.

By late 2010, and with the addition of organist
Thomas Scotson, they officially became Turrentine
Jones and together performed their first show at
North London Tavern in London.
The band’s first two-track single, “Le Debut” was
released twelve months later as a digital download featuring the track “Slam the Door” and “Candy Snake”,
which laid out the platform for much of the Jones’ sound with its organ-guitar-drums combo. Within six
months, Carcamo was replaced permanently by Rich Watts, and shortly after the band signed a publishing deal
with pioneers Rough Trade.
Their third single, “Show Me Mercy” was released in late 2012 as a digital download, distinguished by its
nervous organ bounce, ferocious bursts of guitar and highlighted Neville’s songwriting, often darkly-sensual
with shades of Jack Kerouac co-mingling with witty bon mots and min-dramas.
During an interview for the release of their fourth single “Della May”, which also included the B-side “Electric
Angel”, Neville described Turrentine Jones as a study in contrasts considering himself “gruff and guardedly
wry”, while Watts was more “voluble and outwardly enthusiastic”. Neville highlighted the geographical
differences between the band with Watts and Scotson originating from Wales and Finland, respectively.
In 2013 the band hit their stride, and with the growing radio support of BBC Introducing, elevated them onto
the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury festival performing on 28th June to resounding success.
