The Three Johns

The Three Johns

Profile:
British post-punk/indie rock band formed in 1981 and disbanded 1990.

This casual Leeds trio - Jon Langford (guitar; also leader of the Mekons, and, for the wink of an eye, a member of the Sisters of Mercy), John Hyatt (vocals, lyrics) and John Brennan (real name Phillip Brennan) (bass) - began by specializing in discordant socio-political guitar punk with trembling falsetto vocals; their career-long use of a rhythm machine rather than a live drummer has lent a unique tension to the group's sound.
