Johari

Johari reckon there seems to be a vast void locally, 'between pub rock tribute bands and tightly pigeon-holed alternative music aimed primarily at teenagers'. Find out more about the Exeter based band...

Johari

Tell us about the band...
The current line-up was formed in June 2002 when Kimi joined, although the band had been in existence as a four-piece since March 2003.

Most of us have been in other local bands before.

Marie Belston sings lead vocals and plays percussion. (She's also known as 'Bossy Bitch'!)
Andy Manson (one of the guitar building Manson brothers) is on lead guitar, Kimi Snell has joined us to play rhythm guitar, Simon Shakespeare (Tigger) is on drums and Chris Legg plays bass guitar and mandolin.

How would you describe your music in just three words?
Tongue and cheek.

And what about the track you've chosen to demo, 'Tryst'?
Tryst was produced by Phil Johnstone, former keyboard player with the Robert Plant Band.

He's also produced several Plant and Travellers albums. Phil heard the original version of the song and decided he wanted to give it a new feel.

To listen to JOHARI'S demo click on the link at the top of this page - and don't forget to tell us (and them) what you think.

Johari is an unusual name...?
Johari was the norse Goddess of mushroom eating!

She was also associated with the *Bacchanal rite. Say no more!

*Bacchanal: [adj] used of riotously drunken merrymaking; "a night of bacchanalian revelry"; "carousing bands of drunken soldiers"; "orgiastic festivity"

If you were throwing a dinner party which three guests would you invite and why?
Oscar Wilde for his witty satire, it's second to none.
George Orwell - what a visionary.
Jim Morrison - beauty personified (spiritual, physical, musical and intellectual).

Tell us about your most memorable gig...
The Harley Davidson Club's Annual Rally - Bristol, September 2002. Torrential rain, lots of mud, soggy chips, soggy tents, lusty bikers and "Dancing Queen Mania". Apparently they were expecting a Glam-Rock cover band! Ahem!


The future..?
...doesn't exist yet. (Marie)
...hopefully will always be there. (Simon)
...so bright we gotta wear shades. (Andy)
