The Endless Note

Jonny

The band “Jonny” release their self titled debut album soon, however, members of the new group are certainly not new to the music scene.

In fact there is once again a real Scottish vibe running through the album which was recorded at Chem 19 Studios, Hamilton.

This Lanarkshire connection links back to band member Norman Blake, best known for his work with Teenage Fanclub who has teamed up with the Welsh Gorky’s Euros Childs supplemented by Fanclub’s Dave McGowan and BMX Bandit Stuart Kidd.

Even with Blake now residing in Ontario, Canada it is hoped that the quality melodies therein will reach an appreciative audience.

“I Want To Be Around You” – Jonny

The album artwork (above) is also revealed to be the inspiration behind their unusual name. Blake came across the image on a friend’s website “and thought it would make a great record sleeve… and name for a band”. “Sleeve first, band-name after”, confirms Childs, “that’s always the best way”.

2010 Top 30 New and Old #25

Teenage Fanclub after several years in the “shadows” stepped back into the limelight to release a great album called “Shadows” from which this is my favourite track.

“When I Still Have Thee” – Teenage Fanclub

From the western isles to the tasman sea
There’s a world of men and machinery
But the birds still sing and the sun shines free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

Well, the rolling stones wrote a song for me
It’s a minor song in a major key
But the stars still shine, the museums free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

It’s a modern hymn for the you and me
For the go between and the red army
Long as I still breathe and the air’s still free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

But the birds still sing and the sun shines free
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee
For the rolling stones and the red army
No, I don’t need much when I still have thee

Josh Ritter’s “In The Dark Live At Vicar Street” was released back in 2006, somehow I missed it but since buying the combined CD/DVD set back in February it has been a regular play.
