THE JOHNNYS: Spencer P. Jones: guitar, lead vocals / Slim P. Doherty: guitar / Graham "Hoody" Hood: bass, vocals / "The Real" Billy Pommer Jr.: drums.Ross 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...but on friday november 12 , in 2004 , exceptionally reformed the Johnnys played the first of two Sydney shows ... have a look: http://www.i94bar.com/gigreviews/johnnys.html
