If it’s in the paper, it’s gotta be true, right?


VEGAS SEVEN MAGAZINE /JACK HALLOWEEN…standout was their newest song, “Mr. Las Vegas,” which captured the temptation and seduction of Sin City, all the while paying tribute to Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton. Taking a break from their high-energy beats, Fans of Jimmy Century slowed things down a bit with a sexy rendition of Prince’s “Purple Rain.” The floor filled with dancing couples as the sultry Alicia Perrone added her unique touch to the vocals and guitarist Victor James (already often mistaken for Criss Angel) rocked it out. Fans of Jimmy Century is definitely a welcome addition to the scene, and we highly recommend catching their live set. (March 2012)

THE CAMPANIL / MILLS COLLEGE Lady Gaga is just the tip of the iceberg. She’s taken over where Michael Jackson left off with over-the-top, sensationalist pop, but the door to innovation is still wide open, and the things coming through it are far more eclectic, original and entertaining than we could ever have imagined. One of those things is Fans of Jimmy Century, a Bay Area-based electro-alt-disco-dance group. (Oct 2010)

MARIN INDEPENDENT JOURNAL / PAUL LIBERATORE FOJC is not another Marin band descended from the classic rock icons of the hippie era. They’re a breath of fresh air blowing from West Marin. And who would have predicted that? They may be new to the Marin zeitgiest, but their relative anonymity is not likely to last long. (Sept 2010)

NICK FELDMAN REVIEW I like “Lola Like This.” Being an 80’s guy who is very active now, I can get into the 80’s flavours that this delivers coupled with its contemporary spin. I like its decadent undertones and its electronic funky pop feel! – Nick Feldman of Wang Chung – Nick Feldman Review (2010)

DANCEMUSIC.ABOUT.COM Best New Musical trend: Tech/electro is still majorly huge – but I forecast a new movement of dance rock. By this, I don’t mean rock bands doing dance music, I mean electronic artists going in a rock direction. Keep your eyes out for Speakerbox and Fans of Jimmy Century. – DJ Ron Slomowicz

DANCEMUSIC.ABOUT.COM With a musical style that hearkens back to mid-90s Industrial/Trip Hop acts like Sneaker Pimps, and a present commercial viability shown by the use of their tracks in shows like the L-Word, Ugly Betty, and Samantha Who, the San Francisco-based group are poised to take on the mainstream….and the vocalist, her command of her own voice is surprising, and while listening to the album and preparing for my review, I tried very hard to find a comparison. The closest I can come, and this is a loose comparison, is Siouxsie Sioux, but wow, you should listen for yourself. – Ben Norman (January 2008)
