Sure, but NFJ says he "worked with a band called Killing Joke".... that sounds like more than sharing a producer.

....I like the idea that the Joke were big in the eighties, btw. Can't say that it seemed that way at the time!

The connection is Chris Kimsey, who also produced the Joke (and is lengthily interviewed -- or so I've been told -- in "the Death and Resurrection Show".

CM: Apart from your father, who has made the most impact on you in life?
NFJ: I know the answer immediately. I worked with a band called Killing Joke who were a big band in the 80's, and their guitarist is a guy called Geordie Walker. He was the first experience I had of Rock and Roll. It was his aura, and I said "Whoa, you have the thing that everybody talks about", he had the thing that the Sex Pistols and James Brown had. He made the biggest impact on me; he gave me the biggest compliment. I was on holiday in Spain, and I was stood in a vineyard, soaking up the atmosphere and I got a phone call from him and he asked what I was doing and then he said "You know what Noah; you are an enigma to me". I replied with "I don't know what to say but I'll take that as a compliment as you are the meaning of Rock and Roll to me".


Noah Francis Johnson
He's a 50-year-old adult contemporary soul singer, born in Wales and produced by Chris Kimsey. I would be curious to know the connection, since he indicates he knows Geordie personally. The music is what it is. I'm not going to slam someone's honest effort just because I dislike the genre as a whole.
