Janie Jones

b. Marion Mitchell, Seaham, Co. Durham, Britain. A previous Windmill Theatre gal and sister of vocalist Valerie Mitchell, Janie Jones is normally even more renowned for scandal than her short recording profession. Her many 60s singles included ‘Witches Brew’ (1965), a UK Best 50 strike popularized by pirate radio, but studies for blackmail, prostitution and payola irrevocably connected the vocalist with scandal. Imprisoned through the 70s, Janie was immortalized in melody with the Clash who, because the Lash, supplied the requisite support on her following punk-influenced one, ‘House FROM THE Ju-Ju Queen’ (1983).
