THE JOHNNYS - Grown up wrong

THE JOHNNYS Grown up wrong  CD 1988
Middle sized John / Anything could happ
en / Motorbikin' / Grown up wrong / Going down (with rock'n'roll) / The Logan girls / No excusin' my boozin' / Ten outlaws /Bounty hunter / Cajun woman / Shameless girl / The taller man.
Produced by Ross Wilson
Wilson also produced the band's second album , "Grown up wrong" (august 88) which yielded the band's last two singles , a cover of Chris Spedding's bubblegum punk classic "Motorbikin/Shameless girl"(July 88) and "Anything could happen/Bounty hunter" (november 88) . "Grown up wrong" was a rollicking (if flawed) , good time , country-flavoured rock'n'roll record , but it failed to chart . Michael Armiger replaced Hood on bass at that point . Despite of being one of the most popular bands on the pub-rock circuit , The Johnnys never crossed over into the premier league .
The band broke up in 1989 . Spencer P. Jones had already expended a great deal of effort as a member of the (until then) part-time Beasts of Bourbon . When that band lumbered into life as a full-time proposition in 1989 , Spencer threw in his lot with the Beasts .
It was the end of The Johnnys ! But ...
On friday november 12 , in 2004 , exceptionally reformed the Johnnys played the first of two Sydney shows ... http://www.i94bar.com/gigreviews/johnnys.html
