Norman Blake + Euros Childs = Jonny

 A pairing with enormous promise, Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake has joined forces with fellow top tunesmith Euros Ghilds of Gorkys Zygotic Minci infamy to create the psych-pop project Jonny who are making their Toronto debut this weekend with a two-night stand at the Drake Underground Friday (June 3) and Saturday (June 4). Considering that Blake is from Glasgow and Childs hails from Carmarthen in Wales, it's a bit odd that the songs they've recorded together for their self-titled debut album sound so much like the mid-80s product of New Zealand's Flying Nun label but hey, who's complaining? Any group covering 23rd Turnoff obscurities like Michael Angelo (included in the free four-song EP of non-album tracks available for download below) is fine by me.
