Johnny foreigner and Alcopop! Are proud to present ‘You Could Do Better’ – the fourth album from the ‘Mandy Morbid of Indie Rock’ – 18 months in the making and delivering ever more of the jagged-edged intensity, tigerish dual vocals and awesome melody… And it’s sounding bigger than it ever has before, as JoFo show NO desire to slow down (indeed – their last album outsold the first two in first week sales).

Released on CD, glitter black vinyl and special A1 Map edition with the kind of artwork that will make even those of die-hard digital persuasion weep… *let us know if you’re keen to get the special edition version in store*, this is Johnny foreigner at their finest. Simply – their best album to date…

In the words of frontman Alexei Berrow…

“For the last year we’ve been messing around behind yr backs. It started with robbing drum intros from blink 182 and ended with horns stolen from screaming maldini and in the middle we had these 10 (11) little encounters with a louder noise than you’d possibly be happy about. And if that sentence wasn’t enough of a secret map, we created an entirely probably fictional city for the whole mess to live in.

Bands are supposed to mellow as they get older, idk quite what’s gone wrong”
