about

“He is one of the most talented guitarists I know. His ability, technique and range is incredible.” - Miles Leonard, Chairman Parlophone Records UK and Warner Bros. Records UK

Jonny Weathers - Jonny Weathers And Cosmic Scream



"'jonny weathers and cosmic scream’, an album that literally fizzes and buzzes with creativity, one for the purists we suspect not least because like some sonic magpie this most rare of talents appears equally at home sculpturing anything from wig flipped glam fuzz freak outs and beardy 60’s stoner blues to intimately teased moments of soulful reflection." - Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience

"I'm absolutely loving the Jonny Weathers album...... it's wonderfully loose yet beautifully played. I listen to so much sweet harmonic vocals, that to hear his growl.......Toxic Pop Soldier is achingly beautiful.........The lead guitar throughout the album seems deeply late sixties, at times Peter Green like...........Then there is the absolute gem that is Mongo Shaker." - Don Valentine, I Don't Hear A Single

"I cannot for the life of me work out why this guy isn't bigger....he's a superb guitarist, a damn fine songwriter and obviously has a fine grasp of what he's trying achieve....brilliant stuff." - Andy Uzzell, Dayz Of Purple And Orange

"Weathers fuels it with consistently inventive guitar playing. He delivers poetic lyrics laced with arresting imagery in a vocal style that’s both streetwise and emotional." - Terry Flamm, Broken Hearted Toy.

"this is the quite superb latest offering from Jonny Weathers entitled ‘jonny weathers cosmic scream’. Safe to say one of those albums ripe to be filed under the heading slow burner not least because there’s a maturity of song craft here and an artistic tuning that’s so intrinsically honed to a vintage age that would suggest Mr Weathers was some kind of lost 60’s drop out frozen in time, say ’69." - Mark Barton, losing today.



Jonny Weathers is the bizarre alter ego of songwriter Gareth Proctor. And Cosmic Scream is the artists third studio album (also Kid Radar by Winter In Moscow). Following on from the Miner's Union Songbook, And Cosmic Scream shows a different side of Jonny Weathers in both his songwriting and in his performances as a multi-instrumentalist. With influences including The Rolling Stones, Guided By Voices, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, The Dandy Warhols, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and many more. This album encapsulates a broad historical era but never strays from the original sound of Jonny Weathers And Cosmic Scream.

Track Name: The Bullet And The Breeze And The Killing Floor
Hey you, I wanna see you every day, well it's getting late and I don't believe you're where you say.
And you, you give me something I can't take, and now I'm so fragile I could break,
between the bullet and the breeze and the killin floor,
Well there she lay and I think I might stay, and warm myself up by her fireplace,
between the bullet and the breeze and the killin floor,
I can't live without it,
I can't breathe without it,
I can't dream without it,
I can't scheme without it,
Well I, I'm not cut out for love, it's ok but there's too much push and shove,
between the bullet and the breeze and the killin floor,
between the bullet and the breeze and the killin floor,
I can't live without it,
I can't breathe without it,
I can't dream without it,
I can't scheme without it.
Track Name: Indian Rope Tricks
You don't tell me what you need,
must be something there that I don't see,
yeah the damage is done but you don't understand, you're like a crazy motherfucker with a gun in their hand, and in the way you say it, I don't hear anymore, it's like my bullet killed Jesus and he's strung out on the floor,
Hey, you, how, soon,
will it come, my avalon,
she's the one,
You knocked me right off my feet,
brought me down to my knees,
well I can't explain what I don't understand, feel like I'm picking up the pieces of a broken man, it's like a beautiful bird you crushed in your hand, and you buried the man and you've ruined his land,
Hey, you, how, soon,
will it come, my avalon,
she's so strong,
when will it come, my avalon,
she's the one,
Hey, you, how, soon.
Track Name: Babirusa
She woke me up and asked me for my angel dust,
and I said, I don't know what you mean,
well ok then if you must, then she asked me, baby what's your name,
and I said, don't you know of my fame,
then I said, I think you'd better leave, cause you're crowding my next scene,
It's been a long cold winter,
givin us time to burn,
long cold winter,
givin us time to do it again, hey,
I told told a ghost, that I saw inside my mind,
well you just make the most of all the love that you might find,
cause it's been a long cold winter,
givin us time to burn,
long cold winter,
givin us time to do it again,
it's been a long cold winter,
givin us time to burn,
long cold winter,
givin us time to do it again, hey,
Well I'm not gonna stop because I've only just begun,
and I'm not gonna die wishin that I'd have had less fun,
yeah I'm not gonna stop because I've only just begun,
and I'm not gonna die wishin that I'd have had less fun.
Track Name: Mongo Shaker
You stand tall, like a sunflower,
you give me weight like a bell tower,
ending your eternal reign,
if you could imagine this,
it's been so long since you took me away,
you don't bring good news like a rain cloud,
you play it out and sing it loud,
I'd wait around for one last kiss,
only if you could imagine this,
it's been so long since it took me away,
it's been so long since it took me away.
Track Name: You'll Always Be A Planet To Me
I can't think of another way, to tell you what I see,
so this is all I really have to say, you'll always be a planet to me,
but you don't see,
that you could be what we're looking for,
but you don't see it anymore,
you could be what we're looking for,
this could be what we're looking for,
I've been thinkin about another world, where you can be free,
but I keep livin out of yesterday, and it's made a slave out of me,
but you don't see,
that you could be what we're lookin for,
you don't see it anymore,
yeah this could be what it's all been for,
this could be what we're lookin for,
I'll tell you what I see, there you are like a Jupiter girl, you'll always be a planet to me,
I like to think about another world, where you can be free,
but I keep livin out of yesterday, still you'll always be a planet to me,
but you don't see,
that you could be what we're lookin for,
but you don't see it anymore,
this could be what it's all been for,
this could be what we're lookin for.
Track Name: Toxic Pop Soldier
Contact spaceman, the institute is failing, can't you see, there's a bug in our soup,
echoes of one great union, protracted obligations, towards the truth, brother what have you got to lose,
There's all of these things, in all of these ways,
the pilots of time will eat up your days,
then everything stops,
but nobody told me, nobody told me,
And if you're there, if you hear me break your silence, and pray for violence, brother what have you got to lose, if you chose, to be, uncertainty in the measurement, start again, it grows back, in time you'll understand,
they're all of these things, in all of these ways,
the pilots of time will eat up your days,
then everything stops with toxic pop soldier,
nobody told me,
nobody told me,
nobody told me.
Track Name: Hendrix At The Hacienda
Do what I want but I can't if I don't wanna lose you,
it's all around you everywhere,
it's all around you everywhere,
I can't believe all the things that I see but I need to,
It's all a sound that fades away, yeah you,
You don't know where to run,
you don't know where to start,
Livin in hell but you can't ever tell cause I'm smiling,
it's just an out sign in your head,
selling a soul will the keepers of time come and save me,
it's just a line to buy me time,
Well you don't know when to run,
you don't know when to stop,
I wiil find you,
I will find you,
I will find you,
I will find you,
oh,
do what I want but I can't if I don't ever see truth, it's all around you in the air,
I will find you,
I will find you.
Track Name: Dressed Like Paradise
It looks ready to let go,
on the brink of overload,
and you never should look back,
cause there are dozens on the tracks,
Dressed like paradise, dressed like paradise,
wouldn't it be nice,
to look good every night oh oh oh oh oh
Now it doesn't seem so hard,
so many shovels in the yard,
and you probably should look back,
because the pavement always cracks,
Dressed like paradise, dressed like paradise,
wouldn't it be nice,
Never gonna win without it,
get ready to let go,
you're never doin something real without it,
let the children know,
cause you're never gonna win without love,
get ready to let go,
never doin something real without it,
let the children know, oh oh oh.
Track Name: Shambhala
People who know where, I wanna go there, the lights are glowing,
don't ever be scared, get out of your armchair, the time is coming,
If everyone's singing, think about bringing the self to knowing,
then tell me how you feel, cause you know it's not real and time is running out,
To be living in dreams and laughing about love,
the time is coming,
If we could be somewhere then I'd take you there,
When will it all grow, after the rainbow, it's out of your control,
now I really don't care, get out of your armchair, your time is running out,
To be living in dreams and laughing about love,
the time is coming,
and if we could be somewhere, then I'd take you there,
to be living in dreams and laughing about love,
the time is coming,
If we could be somewhere, I'd take you there.
Track Name: Caroline These Things Happen All The Time
Caroline, let me look into the windows of your mind,
and give it time, let me lead you through the mazes of your life,
be so kind,
Caroline, just you remember these things happen all the time,
and Caroline, let me shatter all the mirrors of your mind, so we're not blind,
How does it feel, to be on the run,
she just ain't real, she's a smokin gun,
How does it feel, to be on the run,
she just ain't real, she's a smokin gun,
how does it feel, to be in the run,
she just ain't real, she's a smokin, gun, gun, gun.
