Product Notes

Johnny 3 Legs, the man and Johnny 3 Legs the band, are a force to be "Wreckoned" with. The musical styling of each member of this band create an eclectic sound that is goes beyond the standards that have been lain out by the hip hop community. A new era of underground hip hop is emerging from each of these talented individuals. Johnny 3 Legs currently boasts 4 stellar members: Johnny 3 Legs, lead vocals and lyrics; Kount Fif on vocals/hype; DJ Omen mix master extraordinaire; and the killer percussionist GearHead! Johnny 3 Legs: AKA the MastaDon Son, 3 Bones Malone, Slim Chancellor, all aliases for Virginia's John Stinson. Johnny first made waves in the music industry in 2001 as the lead vocalist for the genre-bending band Spine: Washington DC's answer to rap metal. Spine featured future stars like Jennifer Arroyo who went on to play in Kittie, Sean Goodwin of J Paris, and Mike Bossier & Mike Spears who are now Audio Terror Regime. After a blistering performance on Interscope Records Farmclub television show, hosted by Matt Pinfield and supermodel Allie Landry, with Disturbed, Queens of the Stone Age, and Kittie, Spine signed with Revo Records in California. They recorded their album, Non Violent Offender with Drew Mazurik (Nothingface, Gwar), released it with much acclaim from critics and began touring tirelessly. In 2002 however, tired of the metal scene, Johnny made the decision to leave Spine to pursue other musical interests. He formed God Is Dead with Harley Davidson of the DC hardcore band Scream (Dave Grohl) and they released two albums before disbanding in 2003. After some soul searching and cleaning up a crippling drug addiction, Johnny founded Virginia Concrete, a fan favorite live hip hop outfit in Northern Virginia. Even appearing on radio stations 98 Rock and DC 101. By this time the MastaDon had found his niche. Winning multiple MC Battles in New Orleans, Philadelphia and DC, he was becoming recognized as one of the top MC's in the DC Metro area. In 2006 he released MastaDon Son, his first full solo album. It featured beloved bassist Jamais and production by Evil E at Earache Studios. Playing all over the mid Atlantic circuit, to date the album has sold thousands of copies on performance and word of mouth alone. Johnny signed with Legal Sound in 2007 and began the production and recording of his latest album, Wreckoning, which was released in summer of 2008. Wreckoning features a beefed up new sound and amazing tracks, with vocals from Kount Fif of Man Bites Dog Records, turntables by DJ Omen, Bass by Aaron Lynch and percussion by GearHead. Kount Fif: Kount Fif has been the head tracking and mixing engineer of Man Bites Dog Studios since 2005. He is an acclaimed producer who has worked with the likes of Killah Priest, Sadat X, GZA, Copywrite, and Empuls. Even releasing his own single Monster on The Swashbuckler this past year. He has been playing, writing, and recording music since before his parents met in the 70's. Primarily focusing on lyrics and beat making he is an accomplished percussionist, as well as a killer Hype Man. He continues to record, produce and mix with many major artists and has started recording and making beats for Johnny 3 Legs' next album. DJ Omen: DJ Omen has been rocking the 1's and 2's for years. A New York native, superb graffiti artist and skilled skateboard driver, Omen met Johnny in the 1990's and they began toying around with a new music style. Mixing killer beats, Johnny's original music and his lyrics they found they had the right chemistry to form a new style of underground hip hop. DJ Omen has been featured on everyone of Johnny's hip hop albums and has been performing live with him since 2003. GearHead: AKA Gerheauser, KG, Calypso, and any other nickname that someone comes up with for him, is an extremely talented drummer and percussionist. His formative years were spent living in Germany and Virginia learning and practicing drums with his father, who has been playing for over thirty years. Sharing the stage with such bands as (He'd) pe, Fu Manchu, and Seamless. This collaboration with numerous artists and bands even led to running his own recording studio. His talent extends beyond hip hop, to any type of music, from metal to folk this kid can do it all.
