For the last 12 years Johnno has been releasing independent music under his own name, as Snippet, Old Tramp and Walken400, creating a unique catalogue of recordings and performances and has been named by Tom Robinson as the most played BBC Introducing artist ever on his BBC 6 Music show.
Johnno has previously worked with the late great Andrew Weatherall and Unkle’s James
Lavelle. He played for Adrian Sherwood’s (On-USound) 5-a-side football team (a silky smooth striker if you’re asking), gloriously beating The Sun newspaper’s team at a championship for charity at Arsenal’s stadium
“I feel about Snippet much like John Peel felt about The Fall – Snippet: A National Indie
Treasure” – Tom Robinson
“An East End Brian Wilson on a budget” – Americana UK
“Pop genius” – Louder Than War
Syncopated dubby electronic wonky pop that sounds great on the radio. Here Come the Freaks has featured on the @bbcintroducing Mixtape on @bbc6music @bbcsounds @amazingradiouk @amazingradiousa.
Written, recorded and self-produced by Johnno in the middle of recording a new Snippet album, Here Come The Freaks just didn’t seem comfortable being sat between two tracks on an album, so it busted out in its own right as a single.
Very British in its stylings, with comparisons being made of Gorillaz remixing Mac DeMarco.
“Here Come The Freaks is in celebration of the picked upon, the bullied and the under-appreciated members of society.”
