Memphis Zealots Joecephus & The George Jonestown Massacre Announce "Five Minutes To Live: A Tribute To Johnny Cash" October 20th


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Joey Killingsworth anchors Memphis-based Joecephus & The George Jonestown Massacre which features a revolving cast on bass and drums. He has set his mind to producing a series of tribute albums alongside Dik LeDoux with Joecephus & The GJM as the backing band, with special guest stars to benefit various charities. The first was 2016's double LP "Mutants of The Monster: A Tribute to Black Oak Arkansas", which featured an astounding lineup and raised money for the Memphis area animal rescue The Saviour Foundation.

Now, Saustex will release the latest effort "Five Minutes to Live: A Tribute to Johnny Cash" on October 20th and it is once again impeccably conceived by the pair and recorded in Memphis, TN. Featured guest artists on this EP include: W.S. "Fluke" Holland (Holland is featured on all tracks and was the drummer for Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and the first man to play a full drum kit on the stage of The Grand Ol' Opry), Mick Harvey (multi-instrumentalist for The Birthday Party, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), Warren Ellis (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Dirty Three), Buzz "King Buzzo" Osborne (The Melvins) and J.D. Pinkus (The Butthole Surfers, Honky). The EP is available on 12" 140 gram blue vinyl in an edition of 200 (exclusively Saustex.com) as well as black vinyl, CD and digital. As a kicker, all of the band's profits benefit the FSH Society. The band will tour in October (dates below).

Previously, Saustex Records released "Mutants Of The Monster" a 17 track, first ever tribute to 1970's Arena Rock legends Black Oak Arkansas. Joecephus & The George Jonestown Massacre provide backing to the guest vocalists and instrumentalists that appear on the record, breathing new life and energy into BOA's classic catalog. Featured artists include: Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys (Nashville Pussy), Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers), Robby Turner (Sturgill Simpson) Shooter Jennings, JD Pinkus (Honky, Butthole Surfers), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), Eddie Spaghetti (Supersuckers), Brian Venable (Lucero), Jeff Clayton (Anitseen), Greg Ginn (Black Flag), Rickie Lee Reynolds (BOA), Bill Davis (Dash Rip Rock), Jim "Dandy" Mangrum (BOA), Whiskeydick, Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers), CT (Rwake), Michael Denner (Mercyful Fate, King Diamond), Jimmy Henderson (BOA), Jello Biafra, Nine Pound Hammer, Kyle Turley, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson Band) and The Kentucky Bridgeburners.
