Line Up

Ambition Demolition

WHO KILLED NANCY JOHNSON? are a​ ​​​Reading-based high-energy ​punk/post-punk band with a growing reputation as an incendiary live act.

"It's really worth getting to see these guys" - Punkarolla

Influences include The Ruts, Wire, Magazine, Black Flag, Fugazi, Killing Joke.

"Powerful yet melodic... this lot would be well received up Blackpool on the Rebellion line up" - Lights Go Out

The songs - apart from one cover that pops up in the live set from time to time - are original.

"A brilliant band... full of energy... a really cool post-punk feel" - New Music Saturday

Formed in Reading (UK) in 2015 from the embers of punk/pop band Nancy Johnson, the change of name mirrored a development from the frat-boy approach of Nancy Johnson to a more edgy and aggressive sound.

"A style that is quite unique... pour out a huge amount of energy... if you get the chance, go see ’em" - Plasma Music TV

Since 2016 the band has gigged at multiple venues in Reading, Basingstoke, Oxford, Guildford, High Wycombe, Kingston, London, Brighton, Chatham, Southampton, St Albans, Colchester and Cirencester, releasing their first EP, Cops and Robbers, in January 2017.

"Spiked with amphetamines... a band that embraces punk's origins as well as influences from the last four decades" - thePUNKsite

In late 2017 WKNJ made their first visit outside the UK with a couple of dates in Milan, and played a set for BBC Introducing LIVE.

"Quality stuff" - IssuePunkZine

In 2018 they toured France, released their second EP, Flat Earth Theory, followed by an eponymous full-length CD-only album that collects all their recorded work so far, including remixes and material not released elsewhere.

"Well worth checking out" - 4.52am

Most recently (September 2018) they released a single, They Reap, for Musicians Against Homelessness. A vinyl release via Sounds of the Suburbs is incoming late 2018/early 2019.
