Joee Johnson – ‘Turn Coat Tradition’ (Single/Video).
From the ‘Drowsy Rock n’ Roll’ of Hush Mozey and his varied solo-material, Joee Johnson is another on the Bristol underground music scene who has certainly done the rounds.
His previous work carries classic singer-songwriter notes alongside Funk, Blues, Folk and much of resurgent Punk frustration the city is increasingly presenting. Joee’s latest EP, Turncoat Tradition, will be available on Halloween with a physical copy set for sale at shows.
‘Turn Coat Tradition’ is stripped back and simplistic. Tones of both Punk and its own renegade, Post-Punk, litter the format of this EP forerunner. Sharp 80’s guitars and lighthearted percussion accompany passive-aggressive playful Punk cynicism keeping with Mr. Johnson’s known skill as a songwriter.
With Huzy Mozey as a full band and the half band approach of much of his solo work, this heavier Rock and Punk streak is something Joee seemingly does very well and with his diverse back catalogue it does send the mind to wonder how much more of this vein he will explore.
‘Watch me shine on its a miracle, get me out of here it’s too typical – it could be you – ohh it could be me – I’ve given up on tradition, I’ve become a turncoat tradition, If you could choose, which one would you you rather use?’
