Peace to Steph
Legends tend to get pissed off with their own back-story. Sorry John. This lil blurb is for those of us who are naive to John's legacy in Glasgow band and the culture of local/not local music. In 94 John formed indy pop band Bis and famously appeared on TOTP without a record deal (shit I remember watching that particular show. What a trip. Sugar Sugar was my jammy-jam). In time Bis signed with Chemikal Underground, K Records and even the Beastie Boy's Grand Royal. Their song was used as closing theme on the powerpuff girls and if anyone we know gets to say this shit as fact, it's John... "I'm BIG in Japan." Bis sold 100,000 units in one week on the release of their debut in Asia. Since these crazy days John has been a constant innovator working as a DJ in Dirty Hospital and playing in ska band Amphetameanies with a couple of Belle & Sebastian's. John also works the boards as a prolific producer for the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Fangs, Linus Loves and Mylo.
