121 – The Many Transitions of Johnny Truant

March 17, 2017 | By | Add a Comment

Johnny Truant is the vocalist for the band The Truants, a self-described “SAN FRANCISCO BASED POST-PUNK/WEIRDO ROCK BAND. WE ARE QUEER, DARK AND CONFRONTATIONAL, YET MOTIVATED BY THE JOY OF ROCK N ROLL. WE WILL MAKE YOU DANCE. WE WILL MAKE YOU SWEAT. WE WILL MAKE YOU QUESTION YOUR SEXUALITY.” Johnny talks with MLR’s Erik Core about his life story including his musical history, intrigue with the androgynous rock star archetype, gender transition, and what it’s like to be in a band with his own father. Plus we listen to a couple of great tracks from The Truants forthcoming album, yet to be released.
