The Johnnys “Elvisly Yours” was the band’s 8th single again produced by Ross Wilson for Mushroom Records. Graham Hood quit the Allniters and had a try out for the Hoodoo Gurus, he made an instant connection with Rod Radalj who was in the band at the time. After the second jam Hood got the impression that he didn't have the gig with the Guru's. He approached Radalj with an idea of a side project -- cowboys playing country style music at break neck Punk pace, strange but true as it had never been tried before. Rehearsals ensued, songs were writ and a drummer, Billy Pommer Junior acquired. The first gig was at Palms disco on Oxford St, Darlinghurst Sydney. The Johnnys are Spencer P. Jones., Graham Hood, Billy Pommer Jr., Roddy Radalj, Michael Armiger, Paul Doherty. To hear The Johnnys first single go to post # 6 but now for you to download is “Elvisly Yours” (K247) “Thank ya, thank you very much”.
