Sweet Jonny are back on track with a high-octane single, ‘Banger Racer’
A glam descent of clanging chords worthy of Slade ushers in ‘Banger Racer’. This heartfelt paean to the down and dirty world of that particular motorsport is driven hard over a stomping beat with crunching stops and howls of wailing lead.

A four-piece from Burgess Hill in West Sussex, Sweet Jonny are fronted by principal songwriter Tom Backshall on vocals and guitar. Fiercely independent and proud of their working-class roots, they have been ploughing their own DIY furrow since the release of their ‘JSA’ EP in 2013.
An eponymously titled debut album came out in 2018, with the follow up expected later this year. Look out for a new video dropping for ‘Banger Racer’ soon, and you can catch them live in the UK on the following dates:
Wednesday 26th January 2022 – New Cross Inn, London
Saturday 5th February 2022 – The Cave, Addlestone, Surrey
Saturday 5th March – The Pipeline, Brighton
Saturday 2nd April 2022 – Slim Jim’s, London
Saturday 16th April 2022 – Poco Loco, Chatham, Kent
