ILL, JOHNNY BAND- Post Office 7"
Kicking off Dusty Medical's busy 2014 release schedule is the latest from Detroit's delightfully shambolic quintet, Johnny Ill Band. After a classic LP and a run of stellar 45s for such labels as Italy, X!, and most recently the legendary Too Pure imprint, Johnny Ill & company bring you two of their most frantic and weird tunes yet, "Post Office" and the b-side "Mark Is In The Car With My Dad". The Onion/AV Club called Johnny Ill Band "stomping, sarcastic rock ’n’ roll, with angular guitars, caveman rhythms, and droning keyboards scoring Ill’s firsthand observations about his happy dirtbag existence" while Johnny himself says "it's got pop's jauntiness, with punk's blemishes. These are 'pop songs from my perspective.'" Hear it for yourself.
