Myspace // "Salt, Pepper And Spinderella" [mp3]
We've been playing the new Johnny Foreigner album Waited Up Til It Was Light on repeat for a couple of months now, but somehow forgot to write about it. Opps. Easily one of my favorites of the year (not to mention a highlight set from The Great Escape), Johnny Foreigner play a spastic brand of noisy pop that basically sounds like a kid with ADHD. Think turbo charged music with blistering tempos, frenzied guitar and pounding drums that's complicated by competing male and female vocals. It's energetic and fun, the type of punk rock that could get you out of bed in the morning or keep you dancing late at night. And it's just really, really good.
Johnny Foreigner are doing a few festival shows over the next few weeks, before gearing up for a full UK tour with Dananananaykroyd in September and October. Waited Up Til It Was Light is currently available for purchase at record stores in the UK (with seven different covers) and online for people living everywhere else. The album should see a physical release in the US on Nettwerk in October.
