THE JOHNNYS ARE BACK AND THEY HAVE A HARD EARNED THIRST

Eighteen months after a run of shows to mark Valentine’s Day weekend, Australia’s Kings of Cowpunk, The Johnnys, are finally back in Sydney and plan to leave no beer can unopened.

The Johnnys are playing Mary’s Underground (formerly The Basement) with an all-star supporting bill of White Knuckle Fever and Broham.

The Johnnys turned on-the-road partying into an art form in the 1980s, earning a reputation as the country’s hardest-working band. Two studio albums and a live LP later, the members moved on to other things, the Beasts of Bourbon and the Allniters among them.

But the lure of songs about Marty Robbins proved too strong to resist; they re-convened often and now play as a three-piece of Graham Hood (bass and vocals), Billy Pommer Jr (drums) and Slim Doherty (guitar0. 

Like every Australian act, The Johnnys have been biding their time and waiting for the COVID-19 chaos to subside so they could venture back out on the road. Having members located in Sydney, Melbourne and the NSW Central Coast added to the complications.

It’s been a very long time between drinks and The Johnnys are vowing to have a good time that you’ll remember - even if they don’t.

Special guests White Knuckle Fever are the ribald shockabilly duo who never fail to slay their audience while Broham is the rockling country outfit led by ex-Vanilla Chainsaws singer Simon Chainsaw.
