Long-Sought-After 80s Metal Album By Jones Street To Be Re-Released

Eonian Records is proud to present JONES STREET ‘Out of the Gutter,’ a reissue of the long out of print and most sought-after indies ‘Dancin’ with the Devil.’ This 2022 release features a brand-new mix of the original recordings, as well as bonus material all remastered by Anthony Focx (Beautiful Creatures, Bang Tango), a mammoth booklet chuck-full of never-published photos from the band’s archives, and liner notes by Steven Reid of Fireworks Magazine and Sea of Tranquility.

Full-force, combat boot-to-the-head, hard rock, with the intensity turned up to level eleven. This is far from another “strip band.” Combining the energy of Skid Row with the attitude of Guns N’ Roses, JONES STREET delivers a unique sound with catchy choruses and pounding grooves.  

Initially, the JONES STREET sound was heavily influenced by the likes of AC/DC, Skid Row, Aerosmith, Van Halen, and Guns N’ Roses, but as time progressed the quintet added a heavy, raw, powerful attack all their own. Something that would lead to regular shows at legendary venues such as the Bacchanal Club, Exposure 54, Gazzarri’s, Roxbury, Scream, The Cathouse, The Roxy, The Tropicana, The Troubadour, Waters Club, Whisky a Go Go, and especially FM Station, a venue which JONES STREET very much saw as their home away from home.

With JONES STREET garnering the attention of many influential rock publications such as BAM, Metal Edge, Music Connection, RIP, and Rock City News, as well as local radio stations KNAC and ROCK 102.1 it was Sony Records who seemed set to sign the band. With a demo deal from the label to record some songs now in their possession, it looked like a visit to the big leagues was just around the corner, but not only was the market JONES STREET was trying to enter already saturated to bursting point, but it also quickly became clear that grunge wasn’t going away so quickly. With the times signaling a shift in the music scene, Sony didn’t follow up on their initial interest, but JONES STREET did record some songs through the deal they had earned.

JONES STREET ‘Out of the Gutter’ features tracks produced by Vince Neil (Motley Crue) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), as well as Jay Baubgarder (Bush, P.O.D., Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, Hoobastank, Evanescence and so many more), and a never-released bonus track ‘On The Edge’ produced & engineered by Jonny Jones and Mickey Perez.

Originally released independently by lead singer Shawn Crosby in 2008, the album quickly sold out and has become a rare find at a high price. This is a MUST have for any and all fans of Skid Row, Guns N’ Roses, Wildside, and Johnny Crash. This pressing WILL sell out, so don’t wait to find this on eBay for $75 to $100 again. ‘Out of the Gutter’ might be one of Eonian Records‘ finest releases to date.

JONES STREET is: Shawn Crosby on Lead Vocals, Jonny Jones on Guitar & Backing Vocals, Mickey Perez on Guitar & Backing Vocals, John (J.J.) Jauregui on Bass & Backing Vocals, Rob Hanna on Drums (1990-91, Tracks 1,2,4,5, & 10), as well as Anthony Focx on Drums (1992-94, Tracks 3, 6-9).
