Biography

After their respective bands had been dissolved, the members of Ol' School Johnny went looking for a solution to plug up their souls. They had lost the motivation to live without music. It was a sad and depressing time in the Rogg household. Their lack of music caused financial instability, which in turn drove the bank to begin mailing out nasty letters. Three months later each member was owing three months in back rent yet none of them had a penny in their pockets.

Bruce and Ronnie Rogg sat down and decided that they would suck up their pride and serve their sister, Daisy, in hopes that she had a plan to win them all their bread. Daisy told them that she had spent the last three months thinking and that she could now fix their problems. The solution was simple; find the necessary staff to write the best rock and roll ep the world has ever known, burn shit down and explode ear drums.

It happened when an old family friend of the Rogg's called their house twenty four times before someone answered the phone... but the twenty fourth time was magic. The Rogg family asked Adam Hollyday to bring his drums over to play astoundingly fast music. He brought them over and Bruce, Ronnie and Adam jammed without amplifiers. Daisy came in and added a sultry voice that was both feminine and hostile. The possibilities began to unfold.

Time passed yet the band was unable to find a bassist, well one that was efficient. With his availability slowly declining, Johnny Lukas finally made the decision to go into exile in Mexico, leaving the band once again holding the bag without a bassist.

While hanging out in a shitty dive bar, Bruce began to get bad vibes from the attitude that was flowing around them. It was almost too much. Bottles were spread out over multiple tables, the shrill giggles of beautiful girls pierced the air around him, drowning out the music. Bruce stood up, ready to fight the man who was responsible for noise and debauchery that surrounded him. Bruce walked over to the strangers table, fists raised in the air, ready to strike when he stopped. The two men looked at each. Bruce thought he saw something, in this mans eyes. It was a look of intense determination. Bruce, still holding the bag that Johnny Lukas had left them with, peaked in and saw the future of his new band. It screamed that this man who now stood in front of him, this Edd K, would be their salvation in the form of a bass player.

Five seconds and one question later Edd K was in the band.

Ol' School Johnny now plays screaming ultra rock and roll during the night.... and drinks during the day.

Lyrics

Patchwork

Written By: Ol' School Johnny

We all gotta make our own ways
Toss the branches & push it away
Don’t be content with yourself
Become what you’ve always been

This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork

Don’t be so scared, be curious

This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork

This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork
This is not a patchwork

Off

Written By: Ol' School Johnny

I'm running but here i'm staying
I'm screaming but no one is hearing
I'm talkin but no one is listening
I'm standing but no one seeing

Take this veil off my life
Take this veil off of my eyes

I'm running but no one is following
I'm falling but no one is caring
I'm streching but no one is reaching now
I'm mumbleling the words come out bleeding

Take this veil off my life
Take this veil off of my eyes

Running, screaming, talking, standing, running, falling, streching, mumbleling

I'm serving but no one is biting
I'm fucking but no one is watching
I'm coming but no one is caring
I'm shattered! get my pieces

refrain encore 2x

Short but nuts wheat

Written By: Ol' School Johnny

I stepped out
Panties back in place
Fixing up my hair
Out of my face

You came out
Hitching up your pants
The condom in the John
Evidence of our dance

I hate to say but;
Wasn’t the best that I’ve had
Not even close
The look on your face was just sad

Billy Bob Thornton

Written By: Ol' School Johnny

Billy hides under the covers
Darkness swallows his head
Something’s scratching under his bed frame
Afraid by morning he will be dead

Monsters & boogeyman
Yeah monsters & boogeyman

He’s got the whim whams
He’s got the whim whams
Terror wins and he can’t breath
He’s got the whim whams

Billy tries to fight it
But it is creeping in
If he can survive this night
They’ll lock him in the asylum

Devil’s & Skeletons (x2)

He’s got the whim whams
He’s got the whim whams
Terror wins and he can’t breath
He’s got the fucking whim whams

Ragnarok

Written By: Ol' School Johnny

Ra-gna-rok
Its coming to get you
Don’t try to hide

Ra-gnarok
Its coming to get you
Don’t start to cry

The water flowing, blood is gushing, gushing
The living dead is feasting, feasting, feasting

Cold hands creaping up my neck
Cuts off my air
UH!
She gave me wine I turned in poisson
Said I just don’t care
UH!
Gave me a hug said to take it slow
Not a race
UH!
I spit back in her face

Ra-gna-rok
Its coming to get you
Get ready to ride

Ra-gna-rok
Its coming to get you
Get ready to die
