AUTOBAHN

Musician/Producer — Leeds

Name?
Craig Johnson.

Where are you from?
Leeds.

What do you do?
Vocalist, songwriter and producer in Leeds band AUTOBAHN.

Describe your style in three words?
Smart industrial Britain.

If you could make a record with anyone from history?
Alan Vega and Martin Rev, from NYC’s Suicide. I listen to Suicide every week, they were so on point, direct and still sound like the future.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
My Bloody Valentine at London Hammersmith was pretty good, think it was the first time I saw them. I remember couples leaving clutching their ears while they were playing the holocaust.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Brudenell Social Club, Leeds.

What British music icons inspire your sound today?
David Bowie and his ability to transform and evolve has constantly moved us forward.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Robin Friday - Swan man.

Which subcultures have had an enduring effect on you?
Punk, glam and Britpop.

If you could share the bill with any band in history?
Velvet Underground circa the Exploding Plastic Inevitable tour with Andy Warhol. When I listened to this band for the first time everything made sense.

What music did you listen to growing up?
I remember lots of glam, Dylan, The Clash and Sex Pistols from an early age. Then it was all about the Manchester scene through to Britpop in my teens.

If you could re-live one year of your life?
It would be 1996, it just filled me with optimism. Oasis headlined Knebworth, Euro 96, Gazza, Jarvis runs on stage at the Brits, the start of new labour, Diana divorces the Royal Family and the Spice Girls, viva forever.


 

Autobahn are a 5-piece post-punk from Leeds. Their second album 'The Moral Crossing' was released in November 2017.

What was the first song you played on repeat?
'Fog On The Tyne' by Gazza.

One record you would keep forever?
'Psychocandy' by Jesus and Mary Chain.
Track 'Never Understand'.

A song from your favourite album?
'Heroin' by The Velvet Underground & Nico from 'The Velvet Underground & Nico'.

A song you wish you had written?
'Symphony No.9 in D minor, Op.125 ' by Ludwig van Beethoven.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Nick the Stripper' by The Birthday Party.

A song lyric that inspires you?
"Miley Cyrus floats in a swimming pool in Toluca Lake
And you're the best girl I've ever had
Can't remember anything at all."

'Higgs Boson Blues' by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Is there a song you like that people wouldn’t expect?
