90s indie-electronica band Jesus Jones are coming to the Grand Vault! The band produced a string of UK hits - Real Real Real, International Bright Young Thing' - and a US number 1 with Right Here, Right Now.
2021 marks 20 years since Jesus Jones released their number 1 album “Doubt” and to celebrate it they will be touring and playing the album in it’s entirety.
Their first album, 1989’s“Liquidizer” with its singles “Never Enough” and “Info Freako” saw them selling over 80,000 copies and obtaining their first silver disc, It led to them touring the UK and Europe, wowing critics and fans with a high-energy live show that was to become the band’s trademark.
Within a year, things really started to happen. When it was first released, at the start of 1991, their second album “Doubt” quickly became a phenomenon. It entered the UK charts at number one and gave the band their first gold disc.
It would also see massive sales around the world, including Canada (where it went platinum), as well as Japan and Australia. However, perhaps the album’s greatest success was in the US, where it went platinum, selling well in excess of a million copies. This was driven by the single “Right Here, Right Now”, which was a huge MTV hit (it was, at the time, the longest-running video on their playlist, ever).The single reached number one, and still remains an anthem to this day.
The album also spawned a number of other huge worldwide hits, including “International Bright Young Thing”, and “Who? Where? Why?”. The band were awarded an MTV award for “Best New Artist”, as well as being nominated for a Grammy.
