Sam Jones is a British singer-songwriter, guitarist, recording artist and producer. He records and performs solo using this name & under the name Angry Town with his trademark power-trio live and recorded. He is self-managed and acts as booking agent (Camouflage Booking) and record label (Camouflage Records) booking tours around mainland Europe. These concerts are backed by an album entitles ‘Retrospective’ consistantly available re-released in limited edition CD & USB formats and online platforms such as Bandcamp & YouTube. He has worked as a film extra landing featured roles in films such as ‘Sweeney Todd’ (directed by Tim Burton) and ‘Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll’ (Ian Dury biopic). He’s gained the respect of many industry insiders, like music journalist John Robb. He has kept a close relationship with several established musicians such as Charlie Harper with whom he recorded a cover of the Hank Williams classic ‘Move It On Over’ in 2007 as a member of ‘Charlie and The Truckers’ (UK Subs). Later working together on one of his own tracks ‘Hit The Floor’ in 2011 as ‘The Berlin Lights’ which was released as a 7″ vinyl on Time and Matter Recordings

Angry Town took their name from the translation of the small town in Poland called Gniewkowo where the original line-up met during a solo concert of Jones. The band’s genre has been described as ‘Mod-Punk’. He was born in Chester, England and grew up in North Wales, before moving to London, where he taught guitar for 11 years. Whilst in London he formed a new version of The Artists Rifles (who were produced by Brian James of The Damned) then The Berlin Lights (a recording project). He also played guitar for several bands and fronted various versions of his solo projects. During this time, he appeared on a track with Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers in Stranger Things). 

Sam Jones has travelled around Europe extensively, performing in Germany, Belgium, Ireland, France, NetherlandsItaly, Czech Republic, Poland, England, WalesScotland and Isle of Man. He has entertained audiences in some of Europe’s most famous cities such as Prague, Berlin, Paris, London, Antwerp, Kraków, Brussels, Dublin, Bordeaux, Liverpool, Namur, Brighton, Poznań, Angoulême, Chester, Brno, Hull, and Wrocław. He has supported the likes of The Membranes (music journalist John Robb’s band), Koniec Świata (Polish Band), UK Subs, Tatia Jayne Starkey (Ringo Starr‘s Granddaugher), Kobranocka (Polish band), The Steepwater Band, Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson’s Guitarist) and The Coral. Weekend shows at Wiel’s Renard Noir in Brussels were integral in his story later leading to full European tours. Shows at L’Oasis 244 in Paris, Hard Rock Pub Pamela in Toruń, Artliners in Berlin, Blues Sklep in Prague, Mustang Live Music Club in Poznań and Hard Rock Cafe in both Antwerp & Dublin, have put him firmly on the European map. An appearance on WWK’s ‘Our Favorate Shop Sessions’ for Made In Liverpool TV and interviews/live sessions on Radio R in Czech Republic, Radio Benelux in Belgium and Radio Sfera UMK in Poland are favourable milestones in his career. Over the years he has played in many famous venues such as The Rhythm Factory, Hope and Anchor, Dublin Castle, Bull and Gate and The Garage in London. He also performed an acoustic set at Charlie Harper’s 65th birthday bash at the 12 Bar Club on London’s Demark Street in Soho in 2009.

“I never really thought about this until I began this biography journey, I’ve come to realise I’ve created a few simple looks which I’ve rotated between over the years. I’d be wearing this stuff both on & off stage now & the more I’ve refined it on-stage the less I wear it off stage! It’s nearly always pitch black, I think the plain t-shirt has been the big one, long or short-sleeved, the suede ‘desert boots’, the leather shoelace, the self-cropped jeans I’d cut the collar from a denim jacket to make a frayed collerless edge, the same with my jeans wear leather shoe laces around my neck. I’ve been inspired by the things I love, it’s hard to confess but I must have been inspired by someone else. As well as his music his unique mod/alternative hybrid sense of style caught the eye of fashion label Relco London in 2017 who used him to model their clothes for thier website relcolondon.com where he is heavily featuredHe rekindled his relationship with the company in late 2019 for the Bulletproof promo videoshoot and can often be seen wearing their gear on stage and in photos.

Sam Jones shortly after moving to Poland Toruń PL – December 2016

When London musician Sam Jones arrived at the railway station in Toruń, he did not know that this city would become his home for several years, before the end of the same year. Following the suspension bridge over the hazy Vistula River towards the city centre, he felt it was no accident  that this unique place appeared on the map of his first European tour . He came to Toruń to take part in an annual event under the slogan “Guitar Days”, where the masters and enthusiasts of this instrument had already met several times. This time, the most important guest of the festival organised at the Hard Rock Pub Pamela was Jennifer Batten, known for her collaboration with Michael Jackson. He appeared as support for the well-known guitarist and led guitar workshops. Here he also met Zbigniew “Tony” Olewicz – a Welshman of Polish descent, who was born in a hospital in Wrexham, later changed into an art college, which Sam attended! The previously mentioned Hard Rock Pub club Pamela has become an important place to which the musician will return several times thanks to the hospitality of the owner – Darek Kowalski. He was here again six months later, playing earlier in Ostrów Mazowiecki and Poznań, as part of his second European tour. Forced to cancel a concert in Nice, he decided to visit Toruń again and extend his stay in the city of Copernicus. This time, he took to the Hard Rock Pub Pamela stage as part of their yearly festival organised there, bringing together fans of guitar music. Among the artists performing on that day was also Ilona Szumańska, now the fiancée of Sam! This is how the journey of several years began, which brought many unexpected stories and encounters in the life of a musician. They initiated the most interesting year of Sam’s stay in Poland during 2017, which resulted in establishing cooperation with Relco London, as well as the creation of Angry Town. Through this activity, Sam tried to transfer to the canvas of the Polish music scene elements of an the important Mod subculture from British history. The Toruń adventure began fully when in December 2016, just before his 37th birthday, Sam made the final decision to leave Great Britain. He got on a bus, having only his guitar and a small suitcase of clothes, but with relief and curiosity about what this trip would bring him. This book is about how all this unfolded, and is only a chapter in the vastness of many stories. Marta Dembińska

After making the decision to become a solo artist in 1998 Sam Jones singer, songwriter & guitarist has written, recorded & performed almost constantly since. He played his debut solo gig as Sam Jones near to his hometown in Chester at Telfords Warehouse, a place that became Synonymous with testing the waters for a while. The set for the evening included the songs Did I Tell You? & Secret. Most remembered for founding Goth-garage outfit The Artists Rifles with whom it’s various line-ups has enabled Sam Jones to showcase his songs both as live performances & in the studio as a band or even ‘as though a band’ sometimes resorting to playing drums or bass himself on early drafts of songs. So who were Sam Jones & The Artists Rifles? Well there were two studio albums, ‘Shoot To Kill’ & ‘Cowboy Wicca’ both compiled from lose recording sessions which took place 1998-2000 the latter being an outtakes album from those tracks left over from the cherry picked tracks of the debut ‘official’ album including some acoustic demos & alternative mixes of tracks from ‘Shoot To Kill’. Sam Jones supplies the lead vocals, electric & acoustic guitars. He also appears on bass guitar, drums & backing vocals on many of the recordings. Most of the tracks on both albums were recorded using tape (analogue). A mini-disc ‘Shoot To Kill’ spawned a CD single & 2 promo videos both directed by, edited by & featuring Sam Jones. Like most the bands which came later also fronted by Sam Jones they were somewhere between a solo project & a band, the difference with this one was that at most this umbrella was giving the image or impression of a band outfit as reflected in the name. It’s origins as a live band are rather vague & murky as to when they used the name for the first time & there were several over-lapping members & understudies. A consistent line up formed by accident in 2000 to play one show then reformed for another gig in 2001 then again for a string of gigs / mini-tour of Englandthat summer. The band played their last show under this title at The Limelight Club in Crewe, a mutual decision among band members to shorten the name & continue as a The Artists Rifles, a title which would out live the band into several completely new line ups bar their front man each time he relocated. There was of course some promotional pictures from 2 shoots, the first of Sam Jones which spawned the cover of the CD single & album & the second of the band. Live audio exists from their first concert at The Limelight Club & was issued as a DIY live album.

He has held several busking licenses to play in the city of Brussels and London’s Underground. He’s travelled the length and breadths of Western/Central Europe playing some impressionable shows along the way. He is known for his slide guitar playing and crooner vocal style.

His live set runs through his original works ‘Hit The Floor’, ‘Fire In The Rain’, ‘The Walker’, ‘Women Gone’, ‘Under Glass’, ‘Looking Back’, ‘Hell’s Bank Note’, ‘When The Howling Wind Comes Back’, ‘The Way She is’, ‘If I Were A Rich Man’, ‘Runaway Wild’, ‘Million Dollar Baby’, ‘Somebody’s Somebody’, ‘Boredom Drug’, ‘On My Way’, ‘I’m Down When She’s Down’, ‘Nightgirl’, & ‘Famous Last Words’ now staples in his set with covers of songs by the classic bands from the Garage & Punk genres like The Jam, The Damned & Billy Idol who have influenced him. .

In 2017 Ged Lynn of The Stairs (who has also acted as Angry Town’s forth member) joined Sam to play as a duo at The Hatch Bar in Liverpool wrapping up his third European tour which included his native UK.

Sam Jones travelling in Dublin IE – July 2019

I have until recently been using two Yamaha instruments; a customised RGX-121D and a Pacifica 112VMX. The RGX has travelled with me through the years and served me well. Unfortunately due to frequent changes of tunings and playing outdoors in various weather conditions busking, I need to put it ‘out of service’. I used a Pacifica during the first incarnation of Angry Town in Poland. Over the years I’ve found them most suitable for my style and physique, especially the neck profiles. I’ve tried many different branded guitars and have come to realise I feel most comfortable and at my best performance ability when playing a Yamaha. The RGX and Pacifica (in natural finish) have been my main instruments for years and have become a trademark image, especially in photos. I definitely need a separate guitar for slide and I imagine having two very similar looking guitars for shows. I would probably benefit from two Pacifica guitars or perhaps another model which may be closer to an RGX. I do not have any current musical instrument endorsements. – Sam Jones

SAM JONES TALKING ABOUT USING YAMAHA GUITARS

Sam Jones (promo shoot) London, UK – ? 2006

This collection of mobile phone recordings was made at small venues across Europe. All the tracks were picked from performances made during the 1st European Tour in April 2016 as well as a couple of Belgium gigs & warm up shows which took place in London.

The last 2 years has seen Sam Jones make the transition from a recording artist playing the occational gig, to a travelling live solo act. As a result this album includes several tracks which have not yet been given the studio treatment & gives an incling to the style of his upcoming official debut album.

As the album’s original concept was solely for upload on Soundcloud (to promote his 2nd European Tour in October/November 2016) it has been limited to just 50 copies on CD, which were on sale before & during the tour. The CD also features 4 additional bonus tracks recorded on a multitrack cassette recorder during summer 2016.

In 2017-18 he fronted Mod-Punk band Angry Town in Poland. The name of the band refers to Gniewkowo, where the original line-up met for the first time . He has continued to use this name to refer to appearances with his hallmark power-trio.  He was born in Chester, England & grew up in North Wales. After spending 12 years living in London until 2016 forming a new Brighton-based version of The Artists Rifles (who were produced by Brian James of The Damned), playing guitar in Monkish, various versions of his solo band then forming The Berlin Lights recording project. He moved top Poland, living there for 3 years, he recently returned to Wales. With an old school equipment set up, including a well-worn Yamaha RGX 121D customised electric guitar he’s owned since the age of fifteen & a small Vox amplifier he’s travelled the length & breathes of Western/Central Europe playing some pretty impressionable shows along the way. He is known for his slide guitar playing & crooner vocal style. His gypsy-like travelling reputation landing him the name ‘Britain’s Young Seasick Steve’.  Achieving three self-booked, self-financed & self-promoted European tours since April 2016 with multiple mini-tours of France, Belgium & Poland. He’s even toured the Isle Of Man. His debut foreign show was in Poland at Cafe Mięsna in Poznań in 2007. He set up his own booking agency/record label Camouflage Booking / Camouflage Records & sells limited edition CDs online or after shows. A series of ‘bootleg-style’ limited edition CD live albums have been produced each with additional demo/studio bonus tracks. He’s already gained the respect of many other well-respected industry insiders like journalist John Robb when Angry Town performed their cover of The Damned’s ‘New Rose’ when they supported his band The Membranes in Poland. He has kept a close relationship with several established musicians such as Charlie Harper with whom he has recorded a cover of the Hank Williams classic ‘Move It On Over’ in 2007 as a member of ‘Charlie & The Truckers’ & featuring him on one of his own tracks ‘Hit The Floor’ in 2011 as ‘The Berlin Lights’ which wasa later released as a 7″ vinyl on Time & Matter Rcordings. He also performed an acoustic set at Charlie’s 65th birthday bash at the 12 Bar Club on London’s Demark Street in 2009. Ged Lynn of The Stairs has acted as Angry Town’s forth member & the two played as a duo at The Hatch Bar in Liverpool wrapping up a Sam Jones European tour in 2017. He even appeared on a track with Charlie Heaton (Jonathan Byers in Stranger Things). An ever expanding album entitled ‘Retrospective’ is on it’s 2nd edition. Compiled from studio & live recordings it now spans 2002-2017 & features tracks originally recorded under the names Sam Jones, Angry Town, The Berlin Lights & The Artists Rifles. Each limited edition CD/USB Flash Drive edition features exclusive bonus tracks not available on the download album. The track listing of the album itself is gradually increasing with each issue with the intention of a double album in the future as his back catalogue is further explored. The album acts as a introduction to his songwriting with some notable contributors including Charlie Harper of UK Subs, Brian James of The Damned, PJ of Anti-Nowhere League, Malcolm Joseph of Grace Jones band, Robbie Kelman of The Dripping Lips, Richard Marcangelo of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Danny Ward of Gengahr & Tony Piper of Vice Squad. Comprehensive track by track details act as an online inlay card & are frequently updated on the album notes section of this website. His exciting performances are delivered with an energy packed one-inch punch playing 2x45 minute sets. Bringing together the skills he has crafted busking on the streets & fronting his pen-named bands & studio projects. Café gigs at Wiel’s Renard Noir in Brussels were integral in his story leading onto full European tours. Shows at L’Oasis 244 in Paris, Hard Rock Pub Pamela in Torun, Artliners in Berlin, Mustang Live Music Club in Poznan, Blues Sklep in Prague & Hard Rock Cafe in Antwerp have put him firmly on the European map! An appearance on WWk’s Our Favorate Shop Sessions for Made In Liverpool TV & interviews/live sessions on Radio R in Czech Republic, Radio Benelux in Belgium & Radio Sfera UMK in Poland (http://www.sfera.umk.pl/…/blues-rock-z-wielkiej-brytanii-r…/) are favourable milestones in his career. As well as his music his unique mod/alternative hybrid sense of style caught the eye of fashion label Relco London in 2017 who have used him to model their clothes ever since & he can often be seen wearing their gear on stage & in photos. He is featured heavily on their website. Recent shows at Antwerp’s & Dublin’s Hard Rock Cafes have put him firmly on the European map once again & his ties with Poland remain as he embarks on a new recording project with original members of ‘Republika’. He has been featured in films such as ‘Sweeney Todd’ (directed by Tim Burton) & ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ (Ian Dury biopic). His set list includes some new songs such as ‘Burning Star’ which demonstrate a slightly different direction than he is known for.

Sam Jones’ solo ”no bullshit” performances are raw and honest, leaving his audience with a taste for more. One can imagine how powerful this would sound with a full band. ‘Hit The Floor’ is a stomping track!

Belinda De Bruyn

The Voice Belgique quarter finalist / Da Hush

I think you have some fucking great ideas, good guitar riffs and your voice is just right… has aggression but is not harsh or annoying, like many bands…

You look pretty sharp these days.

It’s a really pleasant song, ambient and inviting in sound, and I love your vocal tone, it’s gripping and soulfully raw.

Without a doubt Sam Jones is an extraordinarily talented musician and songwriter, capable of eliciting support from both legendary punk and mainstream artists alike. Though, having trod the streets and stages of both the UK and mainland Europe for nearly three decades now, this can come as no real surprise. Indeed it is testament to his musical skills and abilities that, through a combination of diligence, luck, tenacity, hard work and total self-belief, he has managed to sustain and maintain his career when many others (like my beloved The Clash) couldn’t. Sam’s obvious love and passion for his trade of choice – nay, his life’s vocation even – and the respect he has garnered to date amongst seriously dedicated professional musicians like Malcolm Joseph (Grace Jones Band), Richard Marcangelo (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band) and Jenifer Batten (Michael Jackson/Jeff Beck), puts him in a bit of a class of his own amongst the majority of his punk peers; and this is a man and musician who, I would happily suggest, would have been just as equally at home strutting around a stage with e.g. The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The New York Dolls, the Dead Boys, The Cramps, or The Jim Jones Revue, as he is in Angry Town or busking solo around the city centres of the UK and mainland Europe in 2018.

Certainly, Sam’s own material shows a willingness and desire to transcend ridiculous, and ultimately extremely limiting, musical tribal bigotries and ‘loyalties’. Just check out the presently available free download via Sam’s Facebook page – Live at Restauracja Stara Gorzelnia, Mogilno, Poland. It’s an awesome and heady mixture and cocktail of adrenalin driven, gasoline fuelled, highly infectious, out of control, car crash, rock ‘n’ roll: made all the more chaotic and raucous by both Sam’s obvious inability to verbally communicate with the majority of his Polish audience, and the introduction of a new bass player for the evening (though it seems that new members are very much the status quo for Angry Town, as Sam continues to remain the only consistent member of the band to date). Yet, though undeniably a little rough around the edges in both quality and sound (as par the course for the majority of live recordings/bootlegs let’s be honest), nevertheless it still serves as a perfect introduction to some of Sam’s own compositions – Somebody’s Somebody, Under Glass, Boredom Drug, Fire in the Rain, The Walker and The Way She Is – for anyone coming across him for the first time; as well as of course being the perfect accompaniment to Sam’s recently released studio album collection, containing material written between 2002-2014, ‘Retrospective’.

The live recording also hints at the range of Sam’s personal taste in music, with the inclusion of the tracks New Rose (The Damned) and Personal Jesus (Depeche Mode). The latter of course (as noted elsewhere within this article) having been released recently also, as Angry Town’s first single. That all said however, it really would be quite impossible to pay Sam Jones and his music full justice within these few simple pages that Punked can offer. Like the legendary (and quite cantankerous) Mark E. Smith’s long and illustrious career, Sam’s too would need the kind of space and freedom that only an auto/biography or two could give it; and who knows, perhaps that’s a project mulling away at the back of Sam’s mind already. For the moment though it’s enough to simply enjoy this multi-talented man’s music.

Noir wave, high velocity garage psych out!

Bull & Gate

These superb Stooged out punkers have been in the studio with Brian James, original Damned guitar troubler – which sounds like it could be Robert Johnson! – but I digress.

Hope & Anchor

Acoustic troubadour Jones plays with brooding rock, a bit like BRMC and Kasabian.

After 3 years of living in Scarborough he left in 2003 followed by a breif stint in Hemel Hempstead before making the move to London & the Scarborough line-up of The Artists Rifles played what would be their last show at The horn, St. Albans in early 2004.  Sam Jones plyed his first London gig at Notting Hill’s Blagclub before a new Brighton based line-up of The Artists Rifles was formed later in the year to re-record cherry-picked demos that where originally recorded in Scarborough.

In 2002 a new short-lived 4-piece version of The Artists Rifles emerged with a second guitarist Simon James. Sam Jones didn’t play a single performance this year but spent most of the year recording demos of the likes of Fire In The Rain, The Way She Is & Baby Doll which was the only track to feature the guitar playing of Simon James.  Also this year a track titled Dark Arches was recorded & featured a violin & viola section which was arranged by Sam Jones.       In 2003 The Artists Rifles go through various drummers while Sam Jones himself took the drum stool in the studio for the early part of this year recording songs such as Aspect Of Love & Ghost Of Eve before recruiting then drummer with Stoner Critics, Gordon Francis from Oxford who stuck around on-loan until early 2004 & recorded the demos of I’m Down When She’s Down & Boredom Drug at Sunshine Studio, Scarborough.  He also played several gigs including The Pickwick & Murray’s Music Bar, Scarborough.
