TUNE Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences - Johnny
Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences are an acclaimed post-punk-outsider-pop group with a Maida Vale session under their belts, not to mention airplay from Huw Stephens and Tom Robinson...but they also have a dark-side.
This bouncy tale follows a child called Johnny who is tricked into grave-robbing and cannibalism ("mother wanted liver for tea...you spent that money all on sweets"), only to be hunted by his zombie platter ("I want my liver back, Johnny!") and meet a gruesome end. A future Halloween anthem!
