Recorded in London, Hampshire and Cornwall with a full band including a 12 voice teenage choir, this Jim Bob album: 'A Humpty Dumpty Thing' began life when Jim was asked to write a song for Mark Ravenhill's hit pantomime 'Dick Whittington & His Cat' in 2007. Jim wrote six songs. Two ended up in the Barbican's Christmas show.

The others were adapted to form the beginnings of this Jim Bob LP. The most obvious Dick Whittington trace is left in the song 'Cartoon Dad', with its chorus of 'I thought the streets were paved with gold / I always thought my fortune flowed / all along the River Thames / from Westminster to Southend into the sea'.

Other songs feature a man whose only friends are his Ikea office furniture, an overweight and lonely drunk running the London Marathon, a love song from a soldier sent overseas and a blog written by God.

Initial limited copies of the album came with the twelve thousand word Jim Bob mini novel 'Word Count'. Set in the not too distant future when all art is commissioned by the State, the story follows a man with writer's block chosen to write an 80 thousand word novel or face a jail term.

Tracklisting:
1. All The King's Horses
2. Cartoon Dad
3. Every Day When I Come Home I Expect To Find You Gone
4. God's Blog

After a long wait, JSSW's debut album was finally released on MusicBlitz - an American online record label - and as such, never made it into the shops. A beautiful piece of work, cherished by those lucky enough to own it.

The actual release date prompted much lively debate at TJB HQ: Jim's records showed the release date to be 19/03/2001, however Mr Spoons distictly remembers playing it on the way to a Palace away game at Anfield in Jan 2001. He even referenced it in the match report in the Palace Echo - entitled "A Bad Day".

Mr Spoons also remembers an informal piss-up at the long-since gone British Queen in Brixton on 12/01/2001, ostensibly, to celebrate the album launch. It was the first time Team Jim Bob came together for a drink outside of gigs. Jim & Les also sang an impromptu version of Happy Birthday down the phone to Mr Spoons' wife at midnight - hence how he remembers the date so clearly.

Thus with that weight of evidence, we are going with the 12/01/2001.

Jim's first released outing, following the break-up of Carter USM. Jim's Super Stereoworld were a virtual band, and possibly, where Damon Albarn nicked the idea for Gorillaz from. This strange, quirky single garnered a fair amount of airplay, but was a complete bugger to find in the shops, which didn't help sales. The B-sides both became live favourites.

The version of Bonkers in the Nut is slightly different to the one that appeared on Jim's Super Stereoworld's debut album.
