Jimmy Carl Black

Jim "Geronimo" BlackBeginning with Them Three Guys in 1959, Jimmy founded or formed the nucleus of the many bands he played drums, sang and recorded with over the next 49 years. By the 1980s, Jimmy was producing his own recordings and had his own record label. Then, moving in 1983 to Austin, a hive of musical talent, Jimmy played and jammed with many musicians over the next 10 years, sometimes catching these bands on tape - the source of some of the CDs he released in the 2000s when he resurrected his own Inkanish label. Moving to Europe in 1992, Jimmy continued to form bands with European musicians, playing and recording albums right up to his death in 2008. This table lists much of the output from these bands.
