The Johnnys


The Johnnys were a legendary 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. Read more on Last.fm

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. Graham Hood quit the Allniters and had a try out for the Hoodoo Gurus, he made an instant connection with Rod Radalj who was in the band at the time, after the second jam Hood got the impression that he didn't have the gig with the Guru's. He approached Radalj with an idea of a side project -- cowboys playing country style music at break neck Punk pace, strange but true as it had never been tried before. Rehearsals ensued, songs were writ and a drummer - Billy Pommer Junior acquired. The first gig was at Palms disco on Oxford St, Taylors St, Darlinghurst Sydney Australia.
