The group originated in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007 and after penning the song “Mr. Las Vegas,” felt a strong and sudden urge to grow permanent roots in the city.FOJC hit a fast start with the success of their first 2008 single, “Hot Sahara,” which climbed the dance and radio charts. Both “Hot Sahara” and its accompanying album, Twist of the Banshees, were on the initial ballot in the Electronic Dance category for the Grammy Awards in the same year.“Hot Sahara,” and additional tracks have been consistently selected for key placements in several popular television shows such as The L Word, Gossip Girl, Melrose Place, The Real Housewives of NYC, Running Russell Simmons, Community, Ugly Betty, The Hills, The Listener and Samantha Who?Popular 2011 major feature film releases including Columbia Pictures’ Bad Teacher starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, and Warner Bros.’ Hall Pass starring Owen Wilson featured “Hot Sahara,” “Lola Like This” and “Your Crying Game” in the DVD bonus features of both films this past summer. Popular brands and advertisers such as Roxy Europe, Forever 21 and Zippo Lighters have also used FOJC songs in commercial campaigns. In 2010, FOJC collaborated for LucasArts, assisting composer Mark Griskey with the new Star Wars video game. Fans of Jimmy Century’s exciting and theatrical live performances have made them a favorite on the West Coast festival circuit, sharing the stage with artists such as Lady Gaga, Robyn, Cyndi Lauper, Shiny Toy Guns, The English Beat and Berlin. FOJC’s fans known as “Hotheads” have also been instrumental in social work, raising money for Haiti Earthquake relief, and gathering together through FOJC music purchases to assist future programs in need.

“As far as I can recall, Marin has never had a hometown band quite like Fans of Jimmy Century. In a county famous for hippie-era rock groups, a self-described "alterna-dance 'n' indie disco band with a thing for black velvet paintings and beat poetry" tends to stand out. Victor James and Alicia Perrone perform their electronic dance music in fabulous costumes with choreographed dancers, high-tech sound and lights and special effects. In short - they put on a show. Their new concept seems perfectly tailored to today's rapidly changing music industry, with its niche markets and new ways to make money and attract fans via the Internet, music videos, relentless touring, partnering with name brands and getting songs placed on popular TV shows. They may be new to the Marin zeitgiest, but their relative anonymity is not likely to last long.”
