Johnny was bass player in cult Swansea band the DC10s way back in the early eighties, before having to leave to go to college in Bristol. There he formed a spectacularly unsuccessful band, called The Obsessions, and then set fire to all his guitars and decided he had to get a proper job and settle down.
gtr   Many sadly guitarless-years passed...

Then he moved to Grenoble, France for 5 years or so, where he bought some nice yellow plectrums and started writing songs again. With Gowzza Powell and Calumn Mackay he formed a band called The Jumpjets. Funded by a mini tour of prestige rural bars and brothels the band recorded the spectacularly unsuccessful album A Little Bit Happy.

Since moving back to the UK in the late nineties Johnny has recorded three albums on his own, the latest being I Was a Teenage Sex Kitten. In between playing local gigs, writing and recording new songs and trying to keep his long-suffering family happy, Johnny's next album already has a working title of Bad Tempered Girlfriend...

Johnny can also often be found lurking on a Monday night at Southampton's Candle Club open mic evening, where he is usually the compere for the evening and ruthless host of the legendary Rubbish Jokes competition
