Journey to Southend...
The Jim Jones Revue

Once a holiday hotspot, Southend has fallen on hard times.

The town's waterfront has seen better days, while the iconic pier burned down in a recent fire. Yet there's a dilapidated glamour here, like a fading Hollywoof starlet manifested in an Eglish seaside resort.

The Jim Jones Revue are gearing up for the release of their new album, and recently decided to take a day out beside the sea. Organising a show in Southend, the band were accompanied by a film crew who filmed their every step.

The results are pretty enticing. Rockabilly rebels, there's a curious juxtaposition between the band's flick-knife appearance and the retiring lights of Southend.

Watch Part One below.
