Lets have us some Spencer P Jones type fun,
kicking off this bunch of posts we have the
Johnnys "Showdown" single from Chucks
expansive record library,
The Johnnys were an Australian pub rock band
that fused the fun of punk rock with the 3 minute
pop sensibilities of Hank Williams.
They were contemporaries of The Gun Club and
LA's X. The Johnnys collapsed in the late 1980s
only to reform for shows in 2004 where they once
again proved themselves to be absolutely
brilliant showmen. Their album Highlights of
Dangerous Life is a widely regarded Australian
classic, produced by Ross Wilson of Daddy Cool.
They had at least two smash hits
(Injun Joe-Bleeding heart) in Thessaloniki-Greece
in the year 1987 on radio "Mousikos Diavlos"FM 97.3.
You learn something new everyday, The Johnnys were a hit
