Biography

1) Duo formed by Euros Childs and Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake. The self-titled, co-written album will be released on 31st January on Alsatian Records (Turnstile) preceded by single Candyfloss on the 17th January.

Inter-twining the musical DNA of two of Britain’s most gifted songwriters, Jonny’s debut album proclaims the advent of an irresistibly infectious new strain of psychedelic pop. To kick things off, Jonny are giving away a free, four-track download EP of non-album songs from today (Monday 1st November).

2) Jonny are a band from Nagoya, Japan that started life as a Weezer covers band but quickly built up a solid catalogue of original songs. They self-released a mini-album called Jonny which they followed up with the double-A side Unclefucker / Radio. The unfortunately titled Unclefucker contains one of the catchiest riffs ever to come out of a Fender and is still a live favourite, inciting bouncing and dancing in all.
Their first full-length album, also called Jonny, (available on itunes) features re-recorded versions of the double-A side (proper studio with a proper budget). Stand out tracks include Where Is The Line? (also re-recorded, this time from the mini-album) and the beautiful This Is Not The Last Song. The album fleshes out the bands pop-punk sound, combining a startling energy with structurally interesting writing and an ear for the catchy melody. Mio Sato’s raw voice is a refreshing change from the Mariah Carey wannabes that clog up the charts and Naoki Shinoda’s riffs have an energy and soul that is lacking from the fashionably-skilled guitarists performing in live houses all over Japan.
