Tartu Songwriters Club LIVE #7 18.04.2015


Jonzip McNeill | Andres Roots

JONZIP McNEILL, lead singer and rhythm guitarist with 70’s punk band, The Zips (www.thezips.co.uk), recently struck out on his own, with a foray into the world of Folk/Punk/Protest, armed only with some sharp words and a battered, acoustic guitar. Now, with over forty years of songwriting under his belt, this side-project, has resulted in the recording of his debut solo ep, A Hard Rain At Sunshine Corner, on The Zips’ own record label, Tenement Toons. The 4 songs, recorded with the help of Smiley Barnard and Pablo Cook of the late, Joe Strummer’s band, The Mescaleros, range from the folky, anti-war ballad, 1919 (Battle of George Square), to the almost world-music flavoured, Left Of Your Rights, via the Bo Diddly-goes-punk of Wrong Door Raid, and the more mainstream, pop-punk of Kill Your Darlings. In this so-called, nanny-state, the sleeve should surely carry a safety warning – Beware of Eclectic Shock!
Jonzip – lend him your ears at your peril, you might not get them back!

ANDRES ROOTS on Tartu slaidkitarrist ja laululooja. Eri ansamblitega läbi sõitnud suurema osa Euroopast ja jämminud nii Honeyboy Edwardsi kui Tuomari Nurmioga, tema muusika on kõlanud nii Peeter Simmi filmides kui viie mandri raadioeetris. Üksinda näeb teda aga laval harva – 16. aprillil Tartu Songwriters Clubis on üks selline kord.
