The group known as Why Johnny Kills began as a long running collective of personalities. Always together, though seperate, yet never lost, they have played shows in various groupings since 1994 or 1995, maybe even earlier, perhaps later. We would know if we had kept better records. The most recent incarnation of the group has solidified around a trio of instrumentalists and the archetype lead singer known only as Sweet Al. Or Cinnamon Cinnamons. Or Timmy Twister Twostepp. The point is I don''t remember. We couldn''t as we have no memories. There are pictures, rumours even that we played once at the notorious Senseless Beauty long ago with instruments consisting of oil cans, kitchen sinks, trumpets and grins. That would have been nice. I''ve even heard of a video from the Golden Spur. A time or two at a place on Maple Street, which I hear is near a police station somewhere in Columbia, SC. But we truly don''t know, it could have never happened. It could have always happened and still be happening...
Jeremy travelled around a bit, from here to the UK... Charleston, Chicago, Seattle... making his instruments of sound along the way. Glenn has seen mountains built and eroded away from the Massachusetts Bay down to the Old South Cay. Nick taught a computer to make such sounds as you have never heard but then the torrent of data required to elicit this howl eventually corrupted the machine. This tragic death led him to try and get those same sounds from the computer out of the guitar. For Tim, it started more recently than he''d like to admit... on the beach perhaps, the pants were off, the voice box was open, the sulphur was illuminating. I''d sang before, but not from "down there." It felt more developed than previous years, less forced. So I did that and they did this or vice versa, until we all met up again in the metal shed, trying not to lose the feeling in our fingers. That''s where the magic happened.
