“Great Electronica from England”
From his EP “Hydra” (German Shepherd Records) released in June 2015.
The Junta. I quite like that name, it sounds well tough… “Do not mess with The Junta“.
The Junta is the solo moniker of keyboardist/bassist John Montague (DJ Monty), which he uses to explore his electronic leanings. Born in 1964, the Salfordian has played bass with a variety of bands in his time including Klunk, Pearl Divers (playing with Mike Leigh ex-The-Fall), Positronik and Kit B (Knowledge Is The Bomb). Influences include Human League, John Foxx, Numan, OMD, New Order, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk “and that’s just the older stuff…” he says.
This rather tasty morsel was inspired by a “love of Marvel films and the tv spin-off AGENTS OF SHIELD“.
I’d never heard of Agent Coulson, but I have now. Everyday’s a school day innit?
