Because I’m a Soft Touch for Good Bands

So it’s come to this. I’m kind of appalled by how blatant the pleading here is having to be – I mean, Johnny Foreigner are actually asking you to tell people you want to see them play in your city – assuming you live across the pond.* They shouldn’t have to be telling people, but whatever.

And if you don’t know who Johnny Foreigner are, they’re a trio of Birmingham based musicians who are so hipster, they make scott pilgrim look mainstream. They are also brilliant. I remember seeing these guys a few years ago, playing in Taylor John’s House in Coventry; essentially a hollowed out coal bunker with great bands on (go there if you’re ever in Cov).

And now they’re trying to plan an American tour limited only by your imagination and their terribly, terribly low funds. How far we’ve come since then!

So help Johnny Foreigner live up to their name – take them to the US and Canada!

And then TO THE MOON!

So read this article, follow its advice, and you will make me and them both happy.

And if you want to know what you’re getting yourself into, watch this; “Eyes Wide Terrified”, a single from their excellent second album “Waited Up ‘Til It Was Light”.

Also this, my favourite song of theirs, called “Salt Pepa and Spinderella”.
