The debut album entitled She's a Good Swimmer is now ready with a fine booklet and a new website to be launched by the end of May 2009. Strongly infuenced by the British music scene, the band was established by four school mates in August 2006. Since then, they have managed to play at most major festivals in the Czech Republic (e.g. Colours of Ostrava 2008, Planet Festival etc.) and to perform several times on TV (e.g. Noc s Andělem).
With a self-made music-video for a song entitled Shall We Have a Baby (on YouTube), they won a nation-wide music video competition called "Garážmistr." In autumn 2008, they supported one of the biggest acts on the Czech music scene - Kryštof. This meant learning a lot and proving themselves in front of a new audience. On the 5th of April, Platonic Johny Music Video Premiere took place in Prague's Chapeau Rouge. There, the manager of Hard Rock Cafe in Prague, Mr. Mo Capatia, saw Charlie Straight and was impressed.
He invited the band to play at the brand new venue. On the 17th of June, the CD Release Party Gig takes place at the FABRIC in Ostrava. Listen to them on myspace. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
