Johnny The Fox – Demos & Recordings
Johnny The Fox was formed in 1985 – featuring Chris Bannister, Martin Talbot, Andrew Talbot and Andrew Rudd, all with a passion for rock based guitar music. With influences such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rush and The Police, the band quickly created a unique blend of guitar driven rock ‘n’ roll.
A successful live act, Johnny The Fox recognised the importance of writing and recording their own material and during regular studio sessions between 1985 and 1989 the band recorded over a dozen original songs.
Chris Bannister’s emotive lyrics and powerful vocals, Andy Rudd’s infectious layered guitar arrangements and the high energy Talbot borthers’ rhythm section combined to produce a catalogue of songs that received critical acclaim from the local music press.
These cd’s were produced as a short run to raise funds for Croston, a local village that flooded badly in the Boxing Day floods in 2015. Over £2000 was raised from a reunion concert performed at Park Hall, Chorley in January 2016. The packaging is a simple plastic wallet with inlay and tracklist.
