Jim Jiminee was an English indie pop band active in the late 1980s. They released one LP and three EP vinyl records.

History[edit]

Jim Jiminee was founded in September 1986, releasing their first EP, Do It on Thursday in 1987 on Cat & Mouse Records. During the next three years, they would release a further LP and two EPs, while playing gigs at various locations throughout England.

They officially disbanded in 1989, where various band members went on to other projects.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, several full-length CDs were released by Vinyl Japan, featuring re-releases and previously unreleased material, including a full-length album, The Thatcher Years.

Kevin and Lindsay Jamieson and Nick Hannan went on to form The Deep Season, and later produced and provided backing for Perry Rose's album The Bright Ring of the Day.

Nick Hannan joined his brother Patrick "Patch" Hannan at his production studio, Blah Street Studio. Patch played drums for The Sundays, Star 69 and Arnold. While there, Nick appeared on numerous albums for a variety of artists, including Arnold, Jack Henderson and Bennet.
