'JEHNNY (SHOW ME THE MOON)' a song by JOHNNY HOSTILE
Let’s go straight to the point : the song ‘Jehnny (show me the moon)’ written by JOHNNY HOSTILE is an ode to my beautiful bottom! It was written by Johnny whilst I was on tour with Savages for the first time in America. He was in France working on new material and he called me to say he had written a song about my callipygian backside - what an honour! Few months later Johnny embarked on a six weeks American tour as main support for Savages and we released the song on Pop Noire records with an instrumental track on the b-side called ‘Del Rio’, in homage to the 70’s porn star Vanessa Del Rio. This record is a good example of Johnny’s fascination for women, his love for them in a sentimental and creative way. I think I will never stop being amazed by the amount of resources he’s got to make this relationship complete. Whoever gets a chance to reach his heart is truly lucky. Meeting him 10 years ago changed my life radically. He offered me to share everything with him - I mean : he REALLY offered me to share everything with him. He was intelligent, talented, erotic - engaging in life with a force and generosity I had never (and still haven’t) witnessed in anybody else before. As Pop Noire’s music main producer (Savages, Lescop, HTB, John & Jehn) and co-founder of the label, these songs are a great introduction to his musical touch, and private fantasy world!You can listen to the songs here :http://open.spotify.com/album/023UggmWWbA9uOq5Awi1ZL/1XcxjpWQgNMctjoXgCSTdg
