John & Jehn announce new London gig

Until early December, I’m on a back-up laptop which does its utmost to make blogging as difficult as possible.  Think of the most petulant child you know, multiply him/her with a BT operator and you have roughly the achieved level of hair-pulling.  Given that, I’m only going to blog when there’s something truly important to divulge – like this… 

Those two there are the glamorous duo of John & Jehn, and they have just announced a new London live date (details below).  Despite hailing from London, the couple spend much of their time in France and haven’t been over to our shores for many months (an Offset appearance was cancelled).  It’s cruel, for theirs is a metallic pop drenched in continental cool: screechy slivers of guitar in league with pleading vocals, haymaking midsections and a whole electronic travelling circus of odd sounds, from the cries of distant children to lusty sighs.  All this with a consistently fast and exhilarating pace. 

I suspect they are spectacularly good live.   Talking of which, one of Mick Jones’ many bands will also be playing the same night.  With John & Jehn promising new material from their second album, not to mention two new live musicians, it ought to be a belter.

Live date
Fri 11 December – The Cobden Club, Westbourne Park
