Johnny is already incandescent when Manuel and Elvis revolt against the constraints and prejudices of their small town near Imola and move towards building something new that will be a smack in the face of hypocritic rules and appearances. The flames blare out in the moment when Rob files through the ruined rows, and throwing fuel on a newborn Johnny, lights a fire destined to grow.
The heat grows as D.B. throws himself into the flaming mix, and Niko unleashes all of his power into the energetic bomb beginning to develop, setting his spark.
The explosion implicates a large part of the Imola region, which begins to dance to a rhythm long forgotten. In winter 2005 Johnny and his demo of five covers light up clubs, leaving literal traces, an act which begins to forge an ever-growing following that catalyzes the attention of the “anti-inflammable” audience. Summer 2008 witnessed the first album of the boy in flames gather oxygen and yet, before the reaction could occur, Elvis takes his foot off the gas while a loaded Cesko piles it on, bringing behind the lines as much oil as he can carry in his pants.
Before the album had even exploded, and without even the smallest signal of alarm by the promoters, the walls of all the bars and clubs on the street that joins Imola and Bologna vibrate from the echoes of the chorus from a Saturday night with Johnny Burning.
Johnny Burning’s long awaited first full recording entitled Get Up, Get Loose, Get Off! will be released by Street Symphonies Records on September 26th 2008. The sound of Johnny Burning is a blend of heavy guitars riffs, memorable melodies and hooks to satisfy even the most demanding rock’n’roll fan! This explosive combination truly defines their fresh vision of what sleaze rock is all about. The songs, the personalities and the stage show has an attitude which is 100% real. Some bands are all about appearance and style, but Johnny Burning keeps it simple: straight forward sleaze rock’n’roll… nothing more, nothing less! Rock’n’roll is no clean lifestyle you can wrap around your waist like some D&G classy belt! It's a way of life. These young guys plays music the way it was meant to be played: raw, sexually charged and in your face!
With one foot planted deeply in the roots of 80s American hard rock music, and the other foot planted heavily and directly in the tradition of the good old glam rnr, this album is what the rock fans eagerly await since years! Listening to these songs you might feel a sudden need to get drunk, take off your clothes and doin’ all the things your mom shouldn’t know! Get Up, Get Loose, Get Off! is going to appeal to fans of classic Mötley Crüe, Guns n' Roses, Skid Row, Van Halen and Aerosmith… all you expect to hear is exactly what you get! The band keeps on marching in and 2008 will be the year they will spend presenting themselves all around the world with their debut album. It’s time for a new rock and roll era!
