Description

The result of a little guy who wasn't able to accomplish his dream of becoming a professional wrestler.

Songs about life and songs about death.

Rock n' Roll from the land of the living skies.

Born at a very young age, John Dale was raised by loving middle class parents; he grew up in the middle of the Canadian prairies with all the privileges one could ask for. However John was born with a hideous physical mutation that science could never explain. He was picked on and ridiculed endlessly while growing up, eventually turning to the friendship of insects, snakes and cartoons.

During his teenage years he developed a taste for professional wrestling and rock n roll. Realizing he could never be the great wrestler he envisioned, he picked up the guitar. Unfortunately John's ego spiraled out of control, He began making boisterous and outlandish comments; claiming he was the voice of the unloved and forgotten... Claiming he was a hero... a humanitarian...

Well, John's selfish intentions became all too apparent. He developed a serious addiction to slurpees and cheeseburgers; becoming increasingly aggressive. He hired a general pack of goons dubbed The Deformities to do his bidding. John was just another good apple turned bad; feeling like the world wronged him and it had a little splainin' to do. He vowed to teach society a lesson, one gig at a time... Johnny 2 Fingers was born.

    "Straight-to-the-point is what J2F and the Deformities do best [...]  The 9-song record from Moose Jaw quartet Johnny 2 Fingers and the Deformities is a multi-course meal. It is filled with different tastes and textures even without straying too far from rock and roll and blues." - Austin M. Davis (Moose Jaw Times Herald)

    Recorded, mixed and mastered by Eric "Juno Ears" La France of Jawbone studios in Moose Jaw, SK.  Produced by John Dale and Eric La France.

    J2F & the Deformities are a trio of rock n’ roll heat scores from Moose Jaw, defying the odds and using what they got to deliver a loud, weird and woolly performance. “(They) take their cues from southern-fried boogie rock and infuse it with a boozy belt of punk rock for good measure.” - Chris Morin, Ominocity. The name of their sophomore album is a tribute to Dan McMillan, the man who awoke from a slumber but retained the memory from a dream in which he envisioned what would be the prototype of a pick prosthetic for Johnny 2 Fingers. Produced by: Mike Lefebvre. Recorded at: Sweat Shoppe Studios, Saskatoon. More info: www.johnny2fingers.bandcamp.com

    How many fingers does it take to rock ‘n’ roll? For J2F, two is more than enough. Loud, raw, visceral, messy, and they’re earning a reputation for kicking ass, taking names, and leaving every audience in a sweaty, gooey mess. On this new five-song EP, expect a blues-based punk rock blitzkrieg with nods to the Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, and Black Sabbath, combined with the wild vibe of a pro wrestling match. Chock full of swagger, grit, passion, and attitude, from the blistering title track to the breakneck energy of “Goin’ Out West” to the sweeping, cinematic finale of “McMillan’s Monster.”

    Recorded at: Sweat Shoppe Studios, Saskatoon. Produced by: Mike Lefebvre and John Dale. Released: August 18, 2017
