Johnny Hates Jazz To Celebrate 'Turn Back The Clock' 30th Anniversary With Two London Acoustic Shows

Wednesday, 01 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Johnny Hates Jazz have announced two special concerts at London's Bush Hall to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's debut album, 'Turn Back The Clock'.

Following a run of UK dates last December, the Anglo-American duo will perform intimate, acoustic shows at the west London venue on October 1 and 3. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday, August 3.

Released in 1988, 'Turn Back the Clock' became a worldwide hit for Clark Datchler and Mike Nocito following the release of the single Shattered Dreams. The album is one of only two debut albums released by Virgin Records that immediately went to the top of the charts upon its release, the other being 'Never Mind The Bollocks’ by the Sex Pistols.

Tying in with the celebrations, Johnny Hates Jazz have launched a Pledge campaign to fund a 'Turn Back The Clock: 30th Anniversary' edition, including an acoustic version of the album, remastered extended mixes, b sides and previously unreleased demos.

Johnny Hates Jazz Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Mon October 01 2018 - LONDON Bush Hall
Wed October 03 2018 - LONDON Bush Hall

Jim James - Uniform Distortion (Album Review)
Thu 05 Jul 2018
Photo: Justin Tyler Close On Jim James’ third solo album, the My Morning Jacket bandleader has dispensed with indie psychedelia in favour of straightforward, gutsy rock tunes. The result is a record of tight musical elements, with a consistently radio-friendly sound, that falls flat when compared to more innovative releases by better rock songwriters.
Sons of Bill - Oh God Ma'am (Album Review)
Thu 12 Jul 2018
Almost everything you need to know about the remarkable transformation Virginia siblings Sons of Bill have undergone on ‘Oh God Ma’am’ can be gleaned from its album cover. An old-fashioned colour TV lies on the floor, smashed and surrounded by dirt, its shadow eclipsing the light. The screen shows a grinning, optimistic, all American kid, his image bisected by the shattered screen. The dream, as they say, is over.
Immortal - Northern Chaos Gods (Album Review)
Wed 11 Jul 2018
Not many Norwegian black metal bands can claim to be a legitimate part of popular culture. They’re not usually seen doing ‘What’s In My Bag?’ videos or hanging out with Post Malone. Instead, they’re in the forest. Being grim. Being evil.

The Beths are learning Welsh. It’s a little after 10 at Le Pub in Newport, and the New Zealand indie-pop band are parroting back a few reliable words and phrases shouted from the crowd. They try cwtch and iechyd da on for size before Elizabeth Stokes draws a line under it. “We’re butchering this,” she says. “Let’s do a song.”
Bodega - Endless Scroll (Album Review)
Mon 16 Jul 2018
Bodega are the art school kids who might sneer at you for Instagramming a picture at their show. They’re the ones who, after a convincing “this isn’t satire”, order their audience to check their emails during the next song. Bodega roll out lines like “I touch myself while staring at your chat text box” and “I use my computer for everything, heaven knows I’m miserable now.” Their message: we are dominated by consumer culture and technology is taking over our lives.
Ovlov - Tru (Album Review)
Mon 23 Jul 2018
There are several ways for records to stand out. They might say something meaningful, or push the boundaries of a genre. Others are so good at purveying a particular mood and atmosphere that they don’t need to do much else. Ovlov’s second album, ‘TRU’, is one of those.
