It’s my music monday … So …
I was totally in shock after I’d listened to some NEW songs. But before I really come to the point I mean, I want to talk a bit about Daniel Johns.
He started with his band SILVERCHAIR, an Australian alternativ rock band and wow, they made awesome music. I liked the sound of his voice and all the selfmade music and instruments, the band played. They were kids but spoke what they thought and they were loud and wild but heroes for so many.
I’m not saying that I’d started to listen to them when they just released their first album, ‘frogstomp’ in 1995. I may listened to a song or two but not in a way I would say: ‘Oh, I’m a fan’. It wasn’t easy in Germany to listen to music like that.
But in a time I had personal problems, with the age of 13, in 1998/99, I’d listened to ‘Ana’s song’ and it seems like it was made for me. And so it began. ‘Miss you love’, ’emotinal sickness’ and others. I was in love with the voice of Daniel Johns. I loved how he sounded like: angry but full of hope. Loud but with so many emotions.
The thing is, I needed Silverchair in my life. I really did. Later on I got the opportunity to get the CDs and I did buy them.
I still listen to them.
Daniel Johns was born April, 22 1979. So it was his birthday yesterday. I guess, it’s a wonder that he’s still there. I mean, his songs were so depressiv and he was it, too. He really were or maybe still is. And he had anorexia, that’s why ‘ana’s song’ was so powerful.
He was only 16 years old when he started with Silverchair. A kid but for me … wow.
When I startet to listen to Silverchair I was just 6 years younger than Daniel Johns. It’s nothing now but as a kid it’s a whole life. I never thought he was hot but cute.
I never liked man with long hair but now he’s is hot with his short haircut, totally. Damnit.
Okay … so … This was my personal Silverchair history. I loved all of their songs, including the album ‘Diorama’ which was absolutly stunning.
Meanwhile he had a project called ‘The Dissociatives’ – with really smooth and relaxing songs.
In 2015 Johns released the album ‘Talk’: It was different but in a way I could live with. It had more electric but I still heard Johns voice out.
BUT his new project … Oh my .. He’s still hot but I hate it.
This isn’t Daniel Johns anymore and I so so sorry. I really am. I actually could cry because it’s so electric and oh gosh, I get headache.
He’d also played that at the Coachella Festvial earlier this month.
This band is called ‘Dreams’: Luke Steele of Empire of the Sun & Daniel Johns of Silverchair.
It wouldn’t matter when I didn’t know how good he really is and what his music made with me. But I know that all. I have a history with Silverchair. A really deep one. Music always safed my life but with Silverchair it was a bit different. I hope this is just a project, nothing for long. It’s awesome that he’s still making music. Awsome that he looks so amazing. He seems like he’s healthy. Vegetarian. We all grow up and maybe it was time for him to get free from the boyish silverchair image. He doesn’t need me to listen to his new songs. But maybe one day he’ll comeback with Silverchair. He doesn’t need me but I need him.
