Who Killed Nancy Johnson + From A Twisted Mind

WHO KILLED NANCY JOHNSON? are a​ ​​​Reading-based high-energy ​punk/post-punk band with a growing reputation as an incendiary live act. Formed in 2015 from the embers of punk/pop band Nancy Johnson, the change of name mirrored a switch to an edgier and more aggressive sound that takes in influences from bands like Wire, Black Flag, Magazine, Fugazi and Killing Joke. The current line-up has been together since 2016 and has toured venues in Reading, Basingstoke, Oxford, Guildford, High Wycombe, Kingston, London, Brighton, Chatham, Southampton, St Albans and Cirencester, releasing their first EP, Cops and Robbers, in January 2017.In late 2017 WKNJ made their first visit outside the UK with a couple of dates in Milan, and played a set for BBC Introducing LIVE. A new EP with the working title Flat Earth Theory is slated for release early in 2018.

 

FROM A TWISTED MIND

We’re 4 old farts, who have all played in bands before since our teen years & had various degrees of success in one way or another.For whatever reasons, we’re all in agreement that this band is the best we’ve played in, the most original band we’ve played in & also had the most success in the shortest time!All our songs are originals. Both Andy, Lee & myself write a LOT, yet we all have a say in how a song transforms & morphs as we’re very much a Democracy regardless of who’s original idea a song was.As a result, our songs aren’t at all “samey” & there is a lot of diversity either in their composition, delivery & how they end up!Some songs have a Killing Joke, or a Damned or Stranglers feel, whereas other songs sound so like something else.
