about

Johnny Crimes Redlands, California

Inspired by the energetic guitar solos of stoner rock, the infinitely moving drum beats of Motown, and the intense, driven bass lines of post punk from the 1970s & 80s, Johnny Crimes have rocked the ladies and their gentlemen across Southern California since 2010. ... more

Track Name: I Was a Slave
You were asleep in the harbor
You believed in love like you were seventeen
And you followed no other
They were ancient ways; you were so naive
And now you're gone, gone, gone and you don't want just any old thing
Your love is gone, gone, gone and you don't want just any old thing

You were right where I found you
You were sitting on a park bench under the trees
There was nobody with you
There were people all around us trying to see
And now we're gone, gone, gone and we don't want just any old thing
Our love is gone, gone, gone and we don't want just any old thing

I was under your face; I was counting the days
I was hungry like a baby sucking the teat
I'm a prodigal slave, I am running away
I am a peasant, I'm a king, I am under your feet

There were bones in the graveyard
There were skeletons dancing on their graves
I'll ask permission to kiss you
I'm gonna hold your hands while I wait
And now we're gone, gone, gone and we don't want just any old thing
Our love is gone, gone, gone and we don't want just any old thing
Track Name: "June 3, 2009"
Saw your face on the television
And all the ways that you've made us smile
I never thought you'd die alone
Autoerotic suicide
Giving up your ghost for just a taste of divinity
Autoerotic suicide
Sometimes on your own it's better
Track Name: Hush, Child!
Did I try to run to you?
You see me frozen
Did I turn to your disuse
Or fail your margins?

Stand up. Sit down.
Blow away.
Stolen. Night owl.
Trying to escape.

Hush, child. Close your eyes and sleep
Make no little sound
Leave them out there in the street
Sleep is pretty

Little ones to them belong
Reaching for a gun
Just have a drink
Don't make me think
No discomfort

I know, I know, so go away
Hearsay you say.
Trying to escape.
Track Name: Radio Loveless
Into the darkest night
We lose ourselves and find a new life
Until tomorrow
We separate ourselves
Hunting mice with mortar shells
And lighting fires

You're on the radio
I'm on the phone
You're on the radio

I'm looking for someone like you to use me
I want something to abuse

Under the dawning light
We strap ourselves into our old lives
It's acrobatic
The children will never know
Not until they've gotten old
We're hippocratic

You're on the radio
I'm on the phone
You're on the radio

I'm looking for someone like you to use me
I want something to abuse
