The Three Johns - English White Boy Engineer


On this date in 1982, The Three Johns released their debut single, "English White Boy Engineer". It was backed by "Secret Agent". Neither track appeared on an album. The Leeds, England post punk band was formed by ex-Mekons guitarist Jon Langford and ex-25 Rifles bassist John Brennan plus vocalist John Hyatt. Oh yeah...there was Hugo the drum machine too. Their sixth and last album was released in 1990.
