Jonny Telafone record launches!

Check out amazing new single Spirit Man.

Jonny Telafone is a Melbourne-based bedroom auteur, responsible for a series of incredible cassette and digital releases over the last five years.

After destroying audiences at the 20 Big Ones shows in Melbourne and Sydney this month, we can now announce a series of launches for his new self-titled record on Chapter Music, a best-of taking the unusual form of a four song vinyl EP accompanied by a 20 track CD.

Unconcerned with genre boundaries, Jonny moves between slick r’n’b sex jams, outsider acoustic folk, and apocalyptic sci-fi mini-epics. On stage, Jonny presents his songs like a sedated Henry Rollins, but the recorded works are nuanced, sophisticated and infused with a bleak humour.

Already possessed of a cult following from his scattered cassette and digital releases, this new compilation reinforces Jonny Telafone’s position as a twisted genius of modern Australian music.

In Melbourne, he launches Jonny Telafone at the Gasometer Hotel, with support from Montero, Repairs and Zone Out. In Sydney he plays a joint launch with Bored Nothing at FBI Social, while Newcastles details will be announced asap!
