Blind Mr. Jones were a British shoegazing band of the early 1990s, from Marlow, England.[1]

The original lineup was Richard Moore (vocals, guitar), James Franklin (guitar), Will Teversham (vocals, bass guitar), and Jon White (drums).[2] They signed to Cherry Red. The band's first EP, Eyes Wide, featured guitar parts written by Slowdive's Neil Halstead, while the Crazy Jazz EP featured harmonica from Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood.[3] Flautist Jon Tegner was added after the first EP, giving the band a distinctive sound.[4]

The band released two albums before splitting up in 1994.[2]
