JOHNNY ILL BAND: Self- titled: 7”

I really liked the A side best. It’s upbeat and depressing in a manner reminiscent of The Modern Lovers. A song about hating winter. I also yearn for summer nine months out of the year. The B side concept is great. Both songs are a person’s name with a cute ‘lil drawing and bio. They really turn up the tempo on this side, exuding some fun, twitchy energy. Very glad to discover this cool band.
