On Monday July 8, Harry George Johns will be releasing a double-A side single via his Bandcamp page on a “pay-what-you-like” basis.
‘End Of Days’ was recorded with James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses, Dry The River) at his studio in Bridlington and breaks away from the quiet acoustic guitar vibe of Johns’ debut ‘Post-Breakdown Blues’ with a much more rock-orientated sound with a full band set-up.
‘All You Can Do’ is the accompanying song and is an alternative version to the one found on ‘Post-Breakdown Blues’. Recorded completely live on the waterfront in Plymouth, Harry roped in Patrick James Pearson (whom he was touring with at the time) on fiddle.
“I essentially wanted to show another string to my bow with ‘End Of Days’. It’s heavier, rockier, not necessarily where my records are heading but I thought it was a good summer song and a neat one-off bit of crunchy guitar worship. With ‘All You Can Do’, I simply wanted to present the song in a different way to the record. Pat and I had a day off tour in his hometown of Plymouth and we set up some mics and just did it. That’s probably my favourite song off Post-Breakdown… and this version had a kind of Gaelic feel, really nice.”
