about

JOHNNY AND THE REST Reykjavík, Iceland

Johnny And The Rest are a Icelandic Blues/Rock group of four. Formed in 2005.
Their music is characterised by the bluesy atmosphere and young-fresh live feeling. Two very different lead singers, warm old school voice and a muddy-dirty high pitching vocals. Initially playing blues rock with an experimental flavour, they incorporated elements of jazz and art/progressive rock into their music. ... more

Track Name: Welcome to my Home
Welcome to my home
Welcome to my home,
I don´t always like being on my own,
I could use a little help,
to fill the floor with desert sand,
Plants and animals need to be there too,
and like the sky the city needs to be blue,

Step in through my doors,
no matter what you say,
you will beg for more,
we play with flames and fire,
where flaming cunts pull their crazy stunts,
Inside my closet we´ll show them a world of its own,
oooh, wait a minute, god is on the phone!
Track Name: Scary Ideas
Scary ideas
They scream, they shout,
they behave so loud,
and they got every right to be angry,
dad´s so mad, „...we gave you everything“, he says,
„everything a child could ask for,“
while mom knows wrong from right,
so when she talks she never lies,
but her eyes give away her secrets,
while dad goes on and says,
„why do you behave like that?,
going around, waving the red flag,“

Well, you never really know,
where your kids gonna go,
you can try full on control,
but there´s no guarantee,
that your sons will be free,
from harm and other scary, scary ideas,

Straight back to school they say,
„is there any other way?,
how else are you gonna make a living?,
but that´s not the worst,
we won´t survive the bad word,
that will spread about your misbehaving,
cause you´re free to choose,
ways society approves,
black suit, blue tie, big smile,
why can´t we do like before,
watch the game, eat some more,
why bother about all those starving children,

Cause you never really know,
where your kids gonna go,
you can try full-on control,
but that´s no guarantee,
that your sons will be free,
from harm and other scary, scary ideas
Track Name: Wolves in the Night
Wolves in the night
The wolves in the night are always biting,
the stars in the sky are always still,
the echoes in the night can be frightening,
the red sun signs the kill,

There she walks in the sins of last night,
outcried eyes gaze at the sunrise,
calls a cab and waits in the trash,
and for a moment she feels like home,
then she cries, she cries, she cries on the world´s shoulders,
she cries, she cries, how one day she´s gonna grow older,

The wolves in the night are always biting...

At the first sunbeams of the first sunlight,
the cab comes to the rescue,
and the bruises locked behind her blue eyes,
are about to be ripped up again,
can she cry, can she cry, cry on the world´s shoulders?
Will she grow, will she grow?
In a world that has grown so much colder,

The wolves in the night are always biting...
Track Name: Safe House For Sinners
Safe house for Sinners
There´s a place I know,
Where all the lights are low,
Where all the wounds can grow,
Safe house for sinners,
Safe house for sinners,
Track Name: Elsku Bróðir
Elsku bróðir
Vertu hér hjá mér, elsku bróðir,
minnumst þeirra daga, er við vorum góðir,
hlupum yfir túnin, sveittir og móðir,
okkur var kennt að hlýða og þaga,
vera góðir og leika okkur saman,
því þá var svo gaman,

Við flugumst á, snerumst gegn hvor öðrum,
rifumst, slógumst, beittum hnúgum hörðum,
innanbrjósts við syntum um í tárum,
ég vildi ekkert meira,
en hlúa að þínum sárum,

Vertu hér hjá mér, elsku bróðir,
óþarfa stolt við leggjum til hliðar,
tökumst í hendur og stillum til friðar,
göngum saman undir hvors annars væng,
mamma bíður með heitan mat og hlýja sæng,
Track Name: Never Before
Never before
Never before have I opened my eyes to the truth that hides in the dark,
opened my eyes to the system of lies and fancy lobbies,
Never before have I been thrown out the doors to the back alley of the leftovers,
leftovers from the shadow men drinking rum running the system,

Never before have I heard the cries in the shadows,
never before have the city lights been so dark,
Never before did I face the facts,
never before did I turn to act,
never before have been so many like me,
never before,

Never before have we controlled the course of the story, written the script,
running through doors of million hotel floors and fancy lobbies,
The system rats follow our every step, black suit, black guns, black hats,
but our silent sounds will echo through the grounds into the night,

Never before have they heard our cries in the shadows,
never before has the suppression been in the light,
never before have they face the facts,
never before were they unable to act,
never before have been so many like me,
never before,
Never before have they feared our cries,
never before couldn´t they rely on the lies,
never before have been so many like us,
never before,
Track Name: Mama Ganja
Mama Ganja
You feed me with your love
you bring me sunshine on a rainy day
and all the stars above
sparkle through your misty ways
You´ve grown so big since I met you first
I feel the need, the might thirst
I care for you my dearest light
on the bathroom floor you thrive

Hey mama ganja, oooooohhhh....

Walk me through your doors
let your branches lead the way
Wrap me in the sun above
through clouds and rainy days
You´ve grown so big since I met you first
I feel the need, the mighty thirst
I care for you my dearest light
on the bathroom floor you thrive
Track Name: Diskómellan
Diskómellan
Dökkleit dansar diskómellan, drekkur ekki of fín vín,
hamslaust stígur glamúrglyðran, hagar sér eins og svín,
Svæsin lítil sóðabrók, leitar lags við lítinn svein,
lýgur honum stærðarlók, að hún sé ennþá óspillt mey,

Í draumi drýgir diskómellan karli drjúgan lostaleik,
veinar karl og vætir beddann, heyrast gól um alla sveit,
Göndull leitar uppi gás og gægjast vill í gilið gleitt,
sladda skal svo fína krás, með sluprungi skal skautið skreytt,

Þó þú ætlir ei að serða færðu ekkert ráðið um,
diskómellan drottnar yfir djöfullegum delanum,
Varast skal að samband komist augna ykkar milli á,
ekki verður aftur snúið, kerling hefur yður náð,
Track Name: I Don't Really Love You
I don´t really love you
Baby babe, I got blue eyes for you,
I don´t really love you, still I hate to see you blue,
Before the break of dawn,
Before I run away,
Yes I pray,

Baby, I hope you love again,
I know I made some scars but you´ll see brighter days again,
Before the break of dawn,
Before I run away,
Yes I pray,
Track Name: Golden Tibet
Golden Tibet (Icelandic)
Ég man þessa gömlu góðu daga,
út á nesi eftir æfingar,
Við sátum og leyfðum okkur dreyma,
við horfðum á sólina,

Sjáðu sólina, sjáðu sólina,
