Biography

Johnny Dangerously is the pseudonym of John Harold Arnold Bramwell - vocal of I Am Kloot.

Johnny Dangerously looked like a griddle chef, but had the voice of an angel. When he walked on stage, he carried only a guitar and a plastic crate. He put one foot on the crate, perched the guitar on his knee and sang soaring, glorious songs about supermarket love affairs, muscle magazines and bedsit self-loathing. People only really knew him around Manchester, but it was 1990, and he was drowned in a tide of baggy trousers. Johnny was more donkey jacket than denim, so this mini-album slipped out and promptly vanished. Shame. Because it’s still to-cry-for wonderful. Aching with picture-poems set to simple soul-squeezing acoustic melodies. No one bought it, and Johnny slipped quietly away. But there’s a sting in the tail. This year, he’s back having one last pop with his band I Am Kloot. Connoisseurs purred when they saw the bonus track on a recent CD single: a lost gem from You, Me and the Alarm Clock, rerecorded and as gorgeous as ever. But sadly, no one’s listening now either.

    I thought he's disappeared without a trace, then somebody played me some I Am Kloot - and there's no mistaking that voice! I've got that old EP too - I think he supported somebody at the International - was it The La's? Gonna go dig it out and get it ripped via Audiolava. Watch this space.

    Had it on vinyl after seeing him on something on Granada. Black and Blue was quality. Should be made available really.

    I lost my demo tape years ago, have searched high and low for any Johnny Dangerously, have had to settle for Johns dulcet tones with Kloot
