Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Ben but my friends call me Wild Johnson.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
No Warning makes greasy thrashy hardcore with an anti-social yoga flare. We mostly write in Haiku form while sipping mint tea, but I am always open to different methods of creation. Lately, I’ve been a fan of only making records exclusively while sick with the flu. Trippy ideas.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We play Toronto, at Velvet Underground, on Thursday the 22nd, next week. Our live performances consist of me running around looking like a washed up member of Swollen Members, and the others guys look sick. Lately, we’ve been opening up with an intentionally sloppy version of “Wild Horses” because we are big Beatles fans, and then dive into the originals.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Headless, In The City, Total Surrender, Torture Culture, Hell realm, Sanctuary – any of those.
