The ' lost near mythical' Hamsters single recorded and ready for release in January 2015 was scheduled as a 7 inch double A sided vinyl before label funding issues scuppered the event ,

Now German Shepherd launches a rescue mission so at last it may be heard ,
Side A , Basically Johnny Moped , celebrates the legendary outsiders Johnny himself along with Slimy Toad , Dave and Fred Burk and the mysterious Xerxes while giving namechecks to other faves with unique visions ' John the Postman , Wild man Fisher , Marc Bolan and Tiny Tim , it is a celebratory blast and salute to people who walk their own chosen way ,

Side AA Freudian Ships

A wonky shanty concerning a hapless bunch of mutineers who end up adrift in both a physical and moral sense


He's back, had his teeth fixed, new album and now Johnny Moped has been immortalised in song by a band called the Hamsters. 'Basically Johnny Moped' manages to cram the whole insane story into a 3 minute tune.. and it's good too - well worth the 75p download from German Shepherd Records website. Give 'em a visit.. they're a fun label with loadsa wacky and inventive tracks for perusal. What a nice morning it is when you find fun and interesting music thriving away from the ghastly mainstream autotuned plastic crap that is unfortunately popular currently (poor teenagers, is all I can say!). Rant over. -Captain Sensible (The Damned)
