If you put the Psychedelic Furs, The Clash and The Waterboys in a blender, you might end up hearing something that sounds a bit like the Tin Gods – especially if you were pretty wasted to begin with.
Formed when Jonny and his old friend, Andy Hobsbawm, returned from working in Austrailia and the States in 1984, the post-punk rock’n’rollers played grungy guitars with sweet melodies on the London music scene throughout the late eighties. Recording one EP and one album, they were featured on a number of TV and radio shows before calling it a day in 1990.
Now, back with a bang, there are playing a few more gigs and looking to record a new album.
How do they find the time!

Two 30 second clip excerpts from the promo video of “Cosmetics” (an EP released by Razor Records in 1987) and of “No Mercy” at some gig at a party in a garage.
