Johnny Foreigner – We Left You Sleeping And Gone Now

We Left You Sleeping And Gone now

I’m sure a few people who happen to stumble across this blog are familiar with Johnny Foreigner. This is their ‘lost’ album, recorded sometime in 2005 before Kelly, their current bassist joined. Something silly like 40 copies were produced by hand so it’s fortunate that it has survived. I’m glad it did, because it’s awesome, even though it sounds as if it was recorded in a cave. Although this is undeniably a bit rough in places, some of it is absolutely stunning and far more mellow than what ended up on ‘Arcs Across the City’ and ‘Waited Up Til’ It Was Light (both great records). If you’re into the 90s Midwest emo scene then you’ll dig this, and the band’s Pavement influences are also pretty apparent. This band are something else live (I think i’ve seen them four times) so check them out if you ever have the chance. Don’t expect them to play any of these songs though!

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
