JohNNy SiZZle – Home Sweet Home

JohNNy SiZZle’s newest release, his first in over eight years, is a slab of pure outsider, acoustic based punk rock n roll. SiZZle’s trademark nasal twang and strumming style are unmistakable on the 14 tracks here. Canadiana punk anthems “Shania Twain Left Mutt Lange (For Me),” “Kick Cindy Klassen in the Face,” and “Dale Hawerchuk Drunk in a Strip Bar” are sure to become classics. SiZZle shows us his introspective, artistic side here too, though, on beauties like “I Dream of Insects” and “So… He Died in Jail.” Throughout, SiZZle displays great storytelling and a way with words that, while frequently referencing pop culture, are sure to stand the test of time. In the future, when we finally have flying skateboards, music geeks will talk about SiZZle in the same terms as Daniel Johnston, BA Johnston, and Mr. Awesome. A true Winnipeg original, we are blessed to have JohNNy SiZZle and his tunes. (No Label) Sheldon Birnie
