Snippet aka Johnno Casson Releases ‘Here Come The Freaks’

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.”
