John Myrtle + Special Guests

John Myrtle is releasing his debut EP, ‘Here’s John Mrytle’, on Bingo Records and Sad Club Records and is taking the jangle pop that has earned him fans at BBC 6 Music and Rough Trade on the road.

‘Here’s John Myrtle’ sees John collect a number of his early demos and live favourites, as well as new songs, and record and mix them proper for this release.

The EP shows the best of John Myrtle’s idiosyncratic pop songs so far, and builds on the recordings done on old tape machines in his bedroom by adding parts from live band members Ben Bartrop and Sean Harper.

Tracks ‘Cyril The Slug’ and ‘Foggy’ have already gained extensive airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music and the band played their first live session for Marc Riley on the station in March.

Radio X and Amazing Radio have also been backing the tunes, and ‘Cyril The Slug’ attracted the praise of Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand and FFS.

John Myrtle and his band have been honing their live show all year, having played with labelmates Mr Ben & the Bens as well as fellow 6 Music favourites Lavinia Blackwall and Wesley Gonzalez.
