“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.”
“Stanford’s Charity Fashion Show began with an amazing performance by band Fans of Jimmy Century. They rocked the runway with their strong vocals, instrumental prowess and powerful onstage presence. The lead singer Alicia Perrone had a punk elegance and worked the runway beautifully. Alicia said “Since we were playing such a spectacular fashion event, I thought I would be well-suited to appear as “the fashion risk” of the evening.” (June 2010)”
“The event started off with Fans of Jimmy Century taking the stage, and let me tell you one thing– this girl can work a runway like no one’s business. No matter what kind of music you’re into, there in no denying that the vocalist Alicia Perrone has an incredible set of pipes on her! The rest of the band was great also, but since I’m no music guru I’ll leave it at that.””
“Fans of Jimmy Century opened the show, rocking an energetic mini-concert, and set the mood on fire for the rest of the evening.”
“I like "Lola Like This." Being an 80's guy who is very active now, I can get into the 80's flavours that this delivers coupled with its contemporary spin. I like its decadent undertones and its electronic funky pop feel!"”
"West Coasty and fun, and they really seem to know what they're doing on a professional level, which I appreciate. Bonus points: one of the members is a direct descendant of Jesse James.'
“Their songs have already appeared on the shows Samantha Who and Ugly Betty, but it’s that unforgettable scene on Showtime’s The L Word that really caused a buzz for the San Francisco-based duo of Alicia Perrone and Victor James.”
“Projects I Can't Wait for in 2008: Topping the list - Fans of Jimmy Century's Global Domination"”
“Another single with lots of great buzz, is the Fans Of Jimmy Century single “Hot Sahara” (Ann-Margrock) which moves #31-#23 this week on the Combined Airplay chart.”
“92.7 Energy San Francisco Dance Top 40 Radio features Fans of Jimmy Century's "Hot Sahara" at #31 for the week of April 20, 2008”
“Oakland group Fans of Jimmy Century have adapted like fish in water to the brave new recording world.”
“FOJC steamed up The L Word this season when "Hot Sahara" was used as the sexy soundtrack to the threesome with Shane at SheBar. The scene was so sexy that the FoJC MySpace page was temporarily shutdown due to concerns about the racy content of the now classic "Hot Sahara" scene.”
