The best kept secret in music


"Great Songs, Honest Approach"

The town that brought you harDCore and Dischord records, the Go-Go- thang, underground recording studios (of which, Evil Genius in Arlington is co-owned by Jones) and a rich history of great alternative bands, has a tradition of people making the music that they wanted to hear. Jones has his own sound and is making his mark with great songs and an honest approach. - Songwriter Circle


Jonesamatic Cha, Cha, Cha - full-length CD, 2003


Feeling a bit camera shy


You’ve heard of emo-core. Now make way for enormo-core!
Fat beats. Big bottom. Jonesamatic is two chubby guys with a lot of technology.

Siamese twins separated at birth, Jonesamatic fuses the electronica-fueled drums, loops, trumpet and keys of Peat Biby with the distinctive voice and guitar of Ian Jones. Their musical collide-a-scope layers catchy melodies and rump-rustling rhythms with lyrics that make you sing along and even (god forbid) think. Their energetic live show is a Freeque de Soleil played out before brain-tickling video projection.

Their debut album, Jonesamatic Cha Cha Cha, is a self-recorded variety pack of all original songs and soundscapes. But this ain’t no lo-fi ho-down. Now based in Baltimore, Jonesamatic arose from the breadbasket of 90s indie-rock, Arlington Virginia. Jones recorded such platters as Tuscadero’s Pink Album (Teenbeat/Elektra) and other 90s darlings at his Evil Genius Audio Labs, while performing with Eggs and Bombardier Jones. Biby honed his drum skills in DC indie bands like Lorelei and Vanity Champ, while remixing the Pietasters, East Coast Boogiemen and Lida Husik at his Enko Studio.

They met as the touring rhythm section for oddball indie-popsters Viva Satellite. Now they have united to bring you more pound per sound. Think Beck. Think They Might Be Giants. Think JONESAMATIC.
