Johnny Casino And The Secrets - New Clothes Old Shoes
Also from Johnny Casino:   Various Releases   Associated Releases:  Asteroid B-612:  Various Releases
Johnny Casino scoured the Australian musical landscape for his latest project - Johnny Casino and the Secrets. Casino is backed by a rotating band of musicians located in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The players may vary (Brad Shepherd-Hoodoo Gurus, Kent Steedman-Celibate Rifles, Bill Gibson-Eastern Dark all make appearances on this record) but the basic philosophy - to invoke and celebrate the intrinsic beauty of the rock'n'roll form - is as solid as Casino's melodic rock'n'roll riffs.

May 2007 sees the release of the debut Johnny Casino and the Secrets album New Clothes Old Shoes, a further testament to Casino's enduring love of the rock'n'roll tradition. Whether it's driving down the highways that lead to the Motor City, taking a meandering journey through the cactus plants of Joshua Tree, or giving thanks at the altar of Motown, Casino refuses to sit back and follow the well worn path.

Beyond the release of the Secrets album, Casino's quest is simple and honourable - to play music anywhere and everywhere and to record the songs that just seem to keep coming thru his head.
