John E Vistic John E Vistic

Multi-instrumentalist, London born (Raised in Australia) Bristol dwelling songwriter John E Vistic plays a unique brand of punk, rock n roll & alt country, described as ‘filthy’ by Damien of Mclusky/St.Pierre Snake Invasion. Musical influences include The Jesus & Mary Chain, Marky Ramone, Jesus Lizard, PIL, Bauhaus, Stooges, The Birthday Party, The Cramps, Sisters of Mercy, The Cosmic Psychos, as well as contemporary acts Idles, Metz & Fontaines DC.

'You will be knocked over by the wall of sound which backs a vocal delivery sounding like Mark E Smith on heat..Amidst fuzzed up, squalling and distorted guitars' - Louder Than War

Humanz are Bastardz (Released 10th November) is a raw, visceral & vicious aural attack, with an existentialist theme taking inspiration from novelists/authors/thinkers Jared Diamond - 'Gunz Germs & steel', Mikhailovich Dostoevsky - ‘Crime and Punishment’ (With added reference to ChatGpt /the Terminator movies) Karl Ove Knausgård - 'Every purpose under heaven' & Ian Dury (There ain't half been some clever bastards) - 'Humanz are Bastardz’. It follows the 2021 album 'Under the Volcano' (A ref to the infamous novel by Lowry) & recent singles 'Das Ubermensch' & 'Spiderz', that received airplay on the BBC, Kerrang and many others.

Official video for EP track - Gunz Germz and Steal: - (The video is a tribute to Kurt Cobain, recorded on the anniversary of his death. You will see lots of objects and references to the famous Nirvana video)
