wenn einer seine alben "call me when old and fat is the new young and sexy" oder "my heart is a blinking nintendo" nennt, dann lässt das nicht nur tief blicken, sondern lässt vielmehr auf eine prise humor hoffen. der geht nämlich so manchem fahrensmann ab. da ist das leiden thematisch breit genug angelegt, um nebenflächen nur unzureichend beackern zu können. nun will ich das aber nicht zu sehr beklagen, da ich auch solcherart musik hochleben lassen kann. beizeiten. für heute aber gilt es, B.A. Johnston zu beehren, einen wilden typen aus hamilton in ontario. von sich behauptet er, dass er die hütte nur verlässt, wenn er konzerte gibt, seiner arbeit als "fry cook" nachgeht oder um seine mutter zu friseurterminen zu begleiten. ansonsten schreibt und spielt er seine lieder, die er verfasst über "deep frying, pirates, poutine and love". …
