Jonny Telafone is a Canberra-expat, Melbourne-based bedroom auteur, responsible for a series of incredible cassette and digital releases over the last five years. Chapter Music is proud to present a Jonny Telafone best-of, taking the unusual form of a four-song vinyl EP accompanied by a 20 track CD. Unconcerned with genre boundaries, Jonny moves between slick R&B sex jams, outsider acoustic folk, and apocalyptic sci-fi mini-epics. Many of his releases to date have been on excellent Canberra label Dream Damage. On stage, Jonny presents his songs like a sedated Henry Rollins, but the recorded works are nuanced, sophisticated and infused with a bleak humor. Jonny's songs are often mesmerizingly creepy, but they can also be touching, even sweet. Tracks like "Pitter Patter" and "All I Ever Want" show the gentler side of Jonny Telafone. The vinyl single features two brand-new songs on the A-side, "Spirit Man" and "Don't Make Me Wait," with two of Chapter's favorites on the B-side, including the no-holds-barred ode to giving pleasure, "Make Your Pussy Cum." The accompanying CD includes the vinyl tracks plus 16 other gems from Jonny's extensive back catalog. Already possessed of a cult following from his scattered cassette and digital releases, this new compilation reinforces Jonny Telafone's position as a twisted genius of modern Australian music.
