Songs About People # 181 Johnny Kwango

'Here come Johnny Kwango. He just sprung down off the ropes. And he won't look you in the eye. In case he gives you any hope...'

Johnny Kwango was a British professional wrestler from the forties to the seventies. Immortalised here by Bevis Frond, a somewhat immortal British psychedelic band themselves who are playing the All Tomorrow's Parties this coming weekend, (starting today), in Prestatyn, Wales. This particular song has something of the bruised romance of Teenage Fanclub's 'Everything Flows' about it.
