The Johnnys, (There’s Gonna Be A) Showdown [Single] (1986)
The Johnnys – a mate played me the album. I tell you – cliché alert! – it was life-changing. It really was. Another mate, from Aussie (and years later) found me the full CD to replace my dubbed-tape. Then I got it on vinyl. The album – Highlights of a Dangerous Life. Just a masterpiece. Love it. Still play it. Often. And so the other week, visiting friends and family in Sydney, we got to talking about the usual crew of great Aussie bands from the 80s. And I mentioned this one to the brother-in-law. And he didn’t know it – so we chucked the album on. So good. I’ve been hooked, all over again, since I got back. Even dug this single out. Good-good!
