about

"Well written and arranged,"Ol Johnny" is a feel-good tune with a serious message,marking a great beggining for the band..." Bob Katsionis (Musician/Producer)

It's been a long and hard journey for the school bus but Schooldrivers are finally reaching their destination. Ol' Johnny in it's premastered version that you can find here is a track to be included in Theronation, Schooldrivers forthcoming debut anglophone album.

Ol' Johnny is infused with dirty grunge distorted guitars, heavy drum beats and dark bass lines, all strung up lyrics and atmospheric keys. The song is discussing the mental rebirth of an ordinary, conservative man named Johnny who follows trends and society rules by the book. Ol' Johnny enlightened by his books (education) decides to kill the "small" person he was, letting his "mama" (aka: the society) know about his decision - releasing a totally rad and great persona into self rebellion, leading to an ultimate change of his society and common reality.

Schooldrivers welcome you into their "home" with this small preview from a whole new world of music.

Change yourself - Change the world.

Track Name: Ol Johnny
Ol' Johnny living oh he’s living driven by the river
He got himself a superphonic he’s out to give eh…

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.

He reads from A & B & C & D and goes to Astr8
He knows how to read this rockarolla mate
He reads from A & B & C & D and goes to Astr8
He knows how to sing…

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.

Revolution will not stop NO,
Revolution isn’t gonna end this way…
Revolution will not stop NO,
Cause revolution is FEMALE!

Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He calls mama saying goodbye
Ol' Johnny lives by the riverside
He reads his books and then he’s gonna die.
