Somebody call Starlee Kine — the December 11 Song of the Day comes with a mystery that needs solving. Glasgow-based Jonny Shitbag & The Smokes are credited with today’s featured track, but there’s kind of a big problem: frontman Jonny Shitbag disappeared six months ago. Straight-up ghosted. Incommunicado.
His band — the aforementioned Smokes — waited around a few months, then decided to move ahead with Jonny Shitbag’s vision. Band member Curls explained in an e-mail to SOMETHINGGOOD:
“In the last three months, us, The Smokes, decided to try and record the songs he left with just some rough scribbled lyrics and chords. We hope he hears them.”
