CROSS-POLLINATION CVI - TUES AUG 8TH - 7:30-10 PM
IMAGINARY JOHNNY
MARK DENARDO

"If the debut from Imaginary Johnny is any indication of what's to come, Belle and Sebastian best be watching its back. Muffled broadcasts and tweakedout squiggles peg lyrics about instant coffee, tropical rain storms and purple-clad prostitutes... summery ballads flutter past like sweet visions of rose colored icing on a three-tier wedding cake... the commentary on love, loss, and New Orleans never grows tiresome." -MAGNET

Mark DeNardos origin involves three individuals with the initials JC: born an Italian/Puerto-Rican Catholic boy in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the hometown of John Coltrane on October 30th, the same birthday as Jacques Cousteau. The first instrument that he was taught as a boy was the violin; the most recent instrument he has studied is the Game Boy. Integrating Little Sound DJ, a program designed to work with the 1989 Nintendo videogame system sound card, DeNardo weaves folktronic songs of robots and dreamy days.
