Jimmy Jimmy - Here In The Light (Rare 1986 Album)

Postby Danielwaver » Fri Nov 02, 2007 2:18 am

This is again one of my favorite obscure albums of the 80's. I saw Redo posted one of their singles and I decided to post the whole album as it's OOP. As a matter of fact I don't think it was ever released on CD. Below see what Mike writes about them on Allmusic.com:


Biography by Michael Sutton
Jimmy Jimmy would have been considered a forgotten band from the '80s if anybody had actually known the group in the first place. A duo consisting of vocalists/guitarists James O'Neill and Jimmy Kemp, Jimmy Jimmy debuted with the chirpiest of singles — the keyboard-laced jangle pop gem "I Met Her in Paris" — in 1985. Reminiscent of Herman's Hermits and the Mindbenders, Jimmy Jimmy had enough Merseybeat charm and British Invasion hooks to make listeners believe that they were '60s relics. Perhaps that is why the group failed to achieve mass acceptance, at least in the U.K. Obscure to most British and American music fans, Jimmy Jimmy found a spot between Aztec Camera and the Housemartins on the Philippines' new wave radio stations, as "I Met Her in Paris" and, to a lesser degree, the lovely ballad "Lady" became staples of the format. Syrupy lyrics and boyish harmonies overflowed on the band's only LP, Here in the Light, released in 1986 on CBS in the U.K. Since the late-'90s Internet explosion, Jimmy Jimmy has acquired greater recognition, as collectors of rare new wave and indie vinyl have sought out the duo's scarcely available small discography. Unfortunately, the current whereabouts of the group remain unknown.

Nice, I posted The Takeaways as you posted one song by them... that in turn made me look through my collection and go: "Oh, yeah, I got that album..."

Here's a funny story...I was looking on eBay and found a listing where there was about 12 copies of the Jimmy Jimmy LP for sale. I emailed the seller and said "you're not Jimmy's mum, are you?" and I got a reply back saying "no, I'm one of the Jimmys...". Meant to bid on one and get it autographed but then forgot about it.

I have all the B-Sides if these are not included in DW's file.

Really? You don't happen to still have that contact info, do you? I've been trying to track them down for an interview.
