Johnny McKay of ‘Children Collide’

I used to spot Johnny outside the infamous ‘revolver’ rehearsal studios on a regular basis. I soon noticed a pattern. It seems the frontman of the band Children Collide almost always has a  pie in his hand. Now,  I’ve seen Johnny live and let me tell you, he tears a set of six strings apart on stage but nothing like the way he tears apart a hot pastry off stage. Apparently the fancy pants has just spent some time in Europe recording the upcoming ‘Children Collide’ album due for release in August. So hide your pies and put aside some coin to see Johnny and Children Collide very soon.
