DESCRIPTION

Indie singer/songwriter Jonny Cohen formed his band the Love Machine in 1987 after moving into the Silver Spring, Maryland group house also home to D.C. area cult hero Root Boy Slim; its basement was the site of regular jam sessions including members of Unrest, Butch Willis & the Rocks and countless other local acts, and their music soon inspired Cohen to began writing his own material. Recruiting a backing unit including former high school classmate Pete Nelson on guitar, Cohen cut a demo of the song "I'm Not an Anorexic" which so impressed TeenBeat label chief Mark Robinson that he invited the group to open for his band Unrest during their performance on the University of Maryland station WMUC. TeenBeat subsequently issued 1989's Jonny Cohen's Love Machine album, followed two years later by the Space Butterfly EP. After a 1992 seven-inch, "Indian Giver," Cohen resurfaced the following year with the full-length Getting Our Heads Back Together. After a four-year hiatus, the group resurfaced with If Six Were Eight.

LOTS OF POP LOSERS TRADING CARD

It doesn't matter if he's got a violin player or a heavy metal band backing him up, his insight is uncanny. Jonny has the ability to find humor in sad things, while at the same time making them all the more tragic. Woe be to the punker who comes to a show expecting mere comedy.

- Kristin Thompson & Jenny Toomey (Lots of Pop Losers music festival)
