JohnXMcClane is a band that i stumbled upon on the (almost) legendary Vinod Karki-channel on YouTube. Needless to say, they play powerviolence, with a hint of hardcore thrown in. One of the more surprising things is that they’re from England. Kent, to be more precise. Since I haven’t heard, or at least haven’t noticed bands in this genre from England at all, it’s a shocker. The band itself consists of Ryan Thompson (guitar), Josh Jordan (bass), Joe Stokes (drums) and Tom Boughton (vocals). They’ve just released their first EP, which contained eighth track of hardcore meets powerviolence, in a totally shredding hysteria. One thing that is noticeable, is their sound, which is a little bit unique. Like a special little snowflake. All kidding aside, they’ve got some originality, which goes along well with the traditional elements of powerviolence. Anyway, I got a hold of Tom Broughton, the vocalist of the band – and asked him a couple of questions about the band, powerviolence and much more. Like Spazz shouted in one of their songs; “Sluta!“, which means “Stop!“, but we’ll never stop!
