Stupefied: The John Perry Playlist

John Perry at CBGB, late 70's, by Eugene Merinov

This week's edition of the Stupefied Playlist is brought to you by a true guitar hero, John Perry - guitarist for influential British rock & roll band, The Only Ones! Not only did the Only Ones release three amazing albums in the late 70's (plus a brace of classic singles), they managed to provide us with one transcendent bona fide classic with "Another Girl Another Planet." Since then, they reunited with all of the  original members just a few years ago, and continue to play the occasional gig. They've also been threatening to release a new album, but this remains to be heard or seen.

John, in the meantime, has kept himself busy writing. With three titles under his belt now, we await more...He has also a lengthy list of production and arranging credits which include other artists like Johnny Thunders, Marianne Faithfull, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, The Sisters of Mercy, Mick Green, Robert Palmer, Freddie Stevenson, Jayne County, Screaming Lord Sutch, Nick Kent & The Subterraneans, Michael Nyman and Evan Dando. Quite an impressive resume!

A big, big thank you to John for sending the list!
