God Damn Whores and Solo Work (2005-present)

After leaving The Wildhearts in 2005, Poole created the God Damn Whores, a glam-punk/hard rock band centred around himself as lead vocalist and guitarist. The band has a flexible lineup which Poole describes as "just me and anyone else who happens to be available." At various times The God Damn Whores has featured Ginger, Wolfsbane guitarist Jase Edwards, Chris Catalyst (The Sisters of Mercy/Eureka Machines) and Ginger's drummer Denzel. God Damn Whores have supported both Cardiacs and The Wildhearts on tour.

The band's first album, We Are The Lucky Thirteen, was released on Round Records. Poole has described this recording as "just meant to be a bit of fun" and has stated that it will be entirely eclipsed by the follow-up (due in 2010) which is "a very tribal/glam/psychedelic affair."

On 19th October 2012, Jon launched a new God Damn Whores album and a solo album on PledgeMusic . As of 29 December 2012, both these albums had been released in digital form, with the CD versions due for release in March 2013.

Famous quotes containing the words work, solo, god and/or damn:

    Many women who used to be full-time mothers are discovering that outside work gives them friends, challenges, variety, money, independence; it makes them feel better about themselves, and therefore lets them be better parents.
    —Wendy Coppedge Sanford. Ourselves and Our Children, by Boston Women’s Health Book Collective, introduction (1978)

    All mothers need instruction, nurturing, and an understanding mentor after the birth of a baby, but in this age of fast foods, fast tracks, and fast lanes, it doesn’t always happen. While we live in a society that provides recognition for just about every life event—from baptisms to bar mitzvahs, from wedding vows to funeral rites—the entry into parenting seems to be a solo flight, with nothing and no one to mark formally the new mom’s entry into motherhood.
    Sally Placksin (20th century)

    I would only believe in a god who knew how to dance.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    Anthony Jay (b. 1930)
