Johnny Casino (John A Spittles) is the founding member and songwriter of the great Australian rock ‘n’ roll band Asteroid B612, Philadelphia PA’s Johnny Casino’s Easy Action, the rotating line-up that is Johnny Casino and the Secrets (featuring the who’s who of Australian rock ‘n’ roll), The Egos, The Lord Street Sound, Carrie Phillis and the Downtown 3. The ramblin’ gamblin’ man, a musical journeyman equally at home in the high-octane atmosphere of Motor City garage rock, the fundamental three chord riffage of 50s rock’n’roll, the charismatic soul of Philadelphia or the dusty plains of Californian country. With spiritual guidance courtesy of Chuck Berry, the MC5, Berry Gordy and Gram Parsons, Casino is always looking for new musical challenges, whether it’s a riff to plunder, a melody to celebrate or a moment to capture.
Johnny is set to release 5×7 The Days of Wine and Cola digitally via Golden Robot Records on March 1. It will also be available as a 5″x7″ and CD Box Set.
Johnny has just dropped a single from the release, titled Love Over Fear which you can check out below.
