Fans of Jimmy Century just released their new single on September 22nd called “Ghosts of Paradise”.
Originally from San Francisco/Oakland CA, Las Vegas-based Fans of Jimmy Century is an original indiewave, modwave, noirwave band with triphop influences in their music and neonoir refernces in their imagery. Newest singles Ghosts of Paradise was released this September and Noirstar (Memories of His City,) is set to release later this Fall 2017.
FOJC remained independent until 2014 when they signed to a 2-single deal with Universal Music Group, their debut song for the label “Va Va Voom to the Moon,” received consistent airplay on Vegas’ commercial station Mix 94.1. FOJC left the UMG deal choosing to self-release again in 2015. Soon after their original song, “Delicate Fever,” was in the WB movie “Get Hard,” starring Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart.
In June 2016, FOJC was offered a monthly residency at Las Vegas’ Copa Room. They created a full production show on the Las Vegas strip called “Fatale Originale,” integrating special guests into their band on rotating stages and bringing the audience onto an avant garde, interactive mini fest playground. In November they took a break from the residency to tour Hong Kong invited by the charity Daughters of Cambodia.
Past sync placements include Bad Teacher (Columbia), Hall Pass (Warner Bros), Finding Nemo 3D (Disney/Pixar), Law and Order: SVU, Gossip Girl, Ray Donovan, Melrose Place, Community, Running Russell Simmons, Betsey Johnson XO, The L Word, E News Live, Forever 21, Google, and more.
At the band’s launch, FOJC’s popular debut single, “Hot Sahara” and its album, “Twist of the Banshees,” was strongly supported by the Winter Music Conference DJ community who rallied to get them positioned on the Grammy nomination ballot, with no knowledge of the band. The band is Vocalist/Lyricist/Voice Over Artist Alicia Perrone, Bassist/Songwriter/Producer Victor James, with live percussion and remixes by Drummer/DJ Steve Walker.
