Following up from last year's Time and Time Again, Johnny Casino has a new album, released October 2018. 

The album began after a phone call from Johnny´s great friend and former member of Asteroid B612 Kenny "Killer" Watt. Kenny asked if he had any new ideas or songs he´d like to record in Fremantle, WA. The answer was yes!! Kenny set about putting a band together to record these ideas.

WARREN HALL (The Volcanics/Datura 4/The Drones)(Drums) has been playing with Johnny for many years either playing live in Western Australia or in the recording studio on many of Johnny´s songs over the year , Warren is such a great organic musician so he was onboard from the start, Kenny then approached MARTYN P CASEY (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds/The Triffids)(Bass Guitar) whom Johnny had met a few times in his travels, Kenny played Martyn some of Johnny´s acoustic ´sketches´ of the songs and Marty was in, so there in lie´s the core of the band for this album, add in some of Fremantle´s locals including DOM MARIANI (the Stems/DM3) – GREG HITCHCOCK (the Bamboos/You Am I) – JOHNNY PHATOUROS (The Volcanics) – RICHARD LANE (The Stems) and Sydney´s singing sisters CARRIE and JODI PHILLIS (The Clouds/The Boobytraps) and you have Johnny Casino's Trade Winds

The album conjures images of reflection of days, people and places in Johnny´s space and time, no fiction here on this record and if you know Johnny´s records that would not surprise you, honest and insightful even if it hurts and at times it does. Musically we believe this album is "sonically speaking" more so than any other album, at times it makes you feel like you are drifting off into the sunset and then all of a sudden you have been hit by a south bound train! The album was recorded in two four day bursts and the band would set up on the recording room floor together and work on Johnny´s songs/ideas from the ground up, trying different feels, tempo´s and different arrangements until they felt they had the song in its right place. Lovingly recorded by Kenny Watt at Electric City Studio in North Fremantle and then mixed at Killerwatt Studios Scarborough by Kenny. Mastered in Detroit by Jim Diamond.
