BLOC PARTY REMIX “SALT, PEPPA AND SPINDERELLA” BY JOHNNY FOREIGNER

EXCLUSIVE B-SIDE ON SPECIAL 10” SINGLE RELEASE - OUT SEPTEMBER 2008

 

DEBUT ALBUM WAITED UP ‘TIL IT WAS LIGHT OUT OCTOBER 2008 ON NETTWERK

 

 

The raves continue to pour in for Johnny Foreigner following a successful summer packed with performances at well-known festivals in the UK and abroad. Check out what they are saying!!!


 

“Johnny Foreigner are the energetic noisy kids from Birmingham whose effervescent music makes like a cross between Sonic Youth and Los Campesinos!”

 

 

“Open mouths seem to follow Birmingham’s most marvelous screwball punks everywhere they go. Partly because of the way they effortlessly veer from Campesinos! – blend schmindie to heaviest walls of sound in barely the space of a middle-eight.” – Out Sept. 2nd 2008 Issue

 

“Like a Bloc Party in a steroid fuelled rage  or a drunk Los Campesinos these guys play songs to fight to then regret remorsefully in poetry at leisure later.”

   

Exclusive Video Premier of  “Salt, Peppa and Spinderella”

 

“Salt, Peppa and Spinderella" is steeped in sexual intrigue; guitarist Alexei Berrow and bassist Kelly Southern trade vocals about alibis and hunger instead of the Los Camp camp's stationery-as-foreplay.”

 

 

 

“…the Birmingham trio’s mix of Q And Not U and Cap’N Jazz wobble-punk  and the immediacy of early Blur and Ash, along with some superbly unhinged girl/boy vocal histrionics…woo the ears of Britain’s more discerning indie-rockers.”

 

 


The band deftly blends the urgency of Bloc Party with the playfulness of Architecture in Helsinki, all beneath a Deerhoof din.”
