Johnny Panic 2005

1. How did the band first meet each other
I met jonny first on a 51 bus that runs from woolwich to orpington. He was wearing a depeche mode tee-shirt and my elder sister had just taken me to see DM (as had his brother), i recognised him from classes but he was in the year above me, so we had never spoken to him. We started a DM conversation and this soon turned into a fully blown chat about bands, that lasted for hours. Nash was jonny's mate's friend and when we first met him he looked like steve marriot of the small faces. he was also into bands, like the who, jam, SF, stones, kinks, beatles. So nash was our mod, jonny was our indie kid, me the punk, we just needed our rock guy..... It was at least a year into our friendship before we started a band and began to learn instruments. We needed a guitarist and matt, a fellow drinker at jonny's pub and lover of all things rock, played, and then, only then was JP born.
