Jimmy B and the Death Rattles were formed at the end of 2017 with the wish to bring art back into Rock music. During the June of 2018 we decided it was time to write an album, in a creative writing frenzy the debut album Porno Taught Me How To Love was created and was released in February 2019 and re-released a year later with the support of Rock Solid Talent Entertainment. The album has received thrilling reviews
2018 / 2019 saw a gig explosion for the band playing at various festivals and supporting some well known artists on UK Tours not mention the album launch, however as 2020 approached we lost our Keyboard player Sam Gill and soon to follow Drummer Nat Carey, however in true Death Rattle style the band quickly found another drummer in Simon Fielker, unfortunately Simon could stay for long but we were very lucky to soon replace Simon with Dean White and following many requests finally landed Joanna Thorn on Keyboards/Synths, Jimmy B and the Death Rattles are complete again.
Musically we take our influences from vast range including The Doors, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, The Police, Sex Pistols, Smashing Pumkins, Lenny Kravitz, Guns n Roses, Skid Row, The Clash, Stooges, Pixies to name but a few.
So what the plan now, well it is album two titled 'Beyond The Fake Lights' and will follow a concept as Porno Taught Me How To Love did, Daniel Bateman the bands singer and frontman has from a writing point of view has begun work on this new concept with the music following as quick as the lyrics are written, we feel another creative writing frenzy again!! Watch this space.....
Each band member has a wealthy amount of musicianship behind them and each brings a strong innate sense of theatre and drama to their playing and live performances, not too missed.
Love On Ya
