Metropolis Touring Presents Direct from the UK THE DOORS ALIVE The Worlds #1 Tribute to …
Johnny Casino (John A Spittles) is the founding member and songwriter of the great Australian rock ´n´ roll band Asteroid B612, Philadelphia PA´s Johnny Casino´s Easy Action, and the rotating lineup that is Johnny Casino and the Secrets (featuring the who´s who of Australian rock ´n´ roll).
Johnny Casino has just released his latest single ‘Ghost Ships’.’ Ghost Ships’ is a hark to the heartland. A deep and soulful rock track that oozes Roots, Blues and a tinge of Acoustic Country.
‘Ghost Ships’ is the first piece of music released from the forthcoming album ‘Vibrations, Yours and Mine’.
Johnny spoke about the recordings:
In music, as in life, there are those who are content to follow the path of normality & certainty, unable to comprehend the intangible pleasures that come with venturing outside their comfort zone then there are those who are prepared to take a chance take whatever comes their way. Johnny Casino is such a man.The ramblin’ gamblin’ man, a musical journeyman equally at home in the high-octane atmosphere of Motor City garage rock, the fundamental three-chord riffage of 50s rock’n’roll, the charismatic soul of Philadelphia or the dusty plains of Cali country. With spiritual guidance courtesy of Chuck Berry, the MC5, Berry Gordy & Gram Parsons. Casino’s musical journey began with a high stakes wager. On the back of a flatbed truck, and in front of the winning post of a racecourse in the Australian country town of Mudgee, Casino at the age of 14 played his first show in front of a biker gang by the name of The God Squad.
