Jim Bob’s 2009 solo album ‘GOFFAM’ tells the story of a city in the grip of crime. The fire station is burning and a sniper is shooting at the nurses from the hospital roof. Another teenage life ends. The cops are corrupt, incompetent, or just lonely. A beacon is sent up into the sky for help. But Goffam’s superheroes are drunk, washed up or scared. Dark man, dark.
Recorded live and almost live with Chris T-T and Johny Lamb.

‘Musicians are meant to be dilletantes at best, but Jim keeps on being a proper writer.’Dave Gorman
‘I cried a lot. What a gorgeous heartbreaking book. I loved it’. Danielle Ward
