Johann Sebastian Punk : ‘Phoney Music Entertainment’

When it comes to pushing boundaries with music, Italy’s Johann Sebastian Punk is about as boundary pushing as they come. The talented multi-instrumentalist is now releasing his chef d’oeuvre in the UK after already gifting it upon Italian audiences.

Hailing from Sicily, self-styled dandy/gypsy hybrid Johann has developed a persona that brings to mind troubadours such as Sufjan Stevens, whilst also evoking thoughts of the pixie-ish faux naivety of early David Bowie and Syd Barrett. Mixed in with the freak Wurlitzer sound of harpsichords, Latin rhythms and, yes, flugelhorns, is the ever-present Johann, delivering his polemics in a style somewhere between and beyond Shakespeare and Adam Ant.

Designed to upset the status quo, the album uses melodic, though clashing musical styles to construct an art-rock opera where no two songs are remotely the same. Listing his influences as ranging from Frank Zappa to Jarvis Cocker and Brian Eno to Miles Davis, a second single, ‘Tragedy’, is scheduled to be released just prior to the album’s launch.

Phoney Music Entertainment is out for UK ears on October 13th.
