Purveyors of self professed ‘musical lunacy’, Johnny Kowalski & the Sexy Weirdos launched themselves in the year of our lord 2010.

Building a fast track reputation from reportedly energetic (a wide reaching descriptive) performances, Mr K & Co enjoyed a successful 2012, including festival slots at both Boomtown and Nostock.

Having recently released their debut album, ‘Victory for the Monsters’, it’s been a busy 2 ½ years for Johnny Kowalski & the Sexy Weirdos – with more festival and UK tour dates in the offing

Lucy Heath went to Freestyle @ The Bull’s Head, armed with a camera, notebook and generously unsolicited +1, for a sexy & weird Birmingham 10 Word Review.
