Rewind: Gorkys Zygotic Mynci - 'Sweet Johnny'

This is in my humble opinion one of the best singles of the late 90s. Catchy, raucous and then soothingly melodic, it's a superb Welsh indie opus. This underrated treasure was released as a single 20 years ago back in June 1998, reaching number 60 and the video was made by legendary cult comedy duo Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish. It can be found on the group's album 'Gorky 5'. Gorkys Zygotic Mynci also have the distinction of being the only band to have 8 UK Top 75 singles without ever making the Top 40.
