We are very excited to announce the release date of the new JOHNNY MOPED album...
It's called 'LURRIGATE YOUR MIND' and it's on LP/CD/Digital and it's out on the 24th May 2019
Time flies! It's three years since the band's last album, It's A Real Cool Baby, but the band have been busy in the meantime. Following the amicable departure of founding member Dave Berk, they welcomed Marty Love as their new drummer.
Since then the band have had successful tours of the UK, Germany, Holland and Scandinavia. They've had prestigious slots at Blackpool's famous Rebellion Festival, recorded two radio sessions for Marc Riley's BBC 6Music Show, and played a storming set at Damaged Goods 30th Anniversary show at London's Koko last September. Plus they played with long time friends, The Damned on their 2018 tour and finished the year with a headline Christmas show at The Lexington.
A biography of the band is currently being written. More details to follow on that nearer to publication date. There's even talk of gigs in the US and Japan in the not too distant future. Fingers crossed eh!
So what can we tell you about the new LP? Well it has 14 tracks including recent sold out single 'Catatonic'. There's a guest appearances from Captain Sensible, a longtime friend and Ex-moped of course and the now found Xerxes. It was recorded at Panther Studios, Reigate and produced by longtime associate Dick Crippen.
