john davisOne-time oollege radio favourite John Davis - part of The Folk Implosion in the '90'- is heading to Australasia.

Davis and Dinosaur Jr bassist Lou Barlow co-founded The Folk Implosion in 1993 while the latter was looking for a different outlet to Sebadoah, his band at the time.

Davis left in 2000. He now now records and tours solo and with a band of rotating characters based in Durham, NC, USA.

Davis's June-July 2019 tour of New Zealand and Australia will consist of
 duo shows, with John on guitar and electronics and Rob Chamberlain on drums and electronics. Sets will mix material from John's Shrimper Records solo catalogue (both old and recent), and material drawn from the Folk Implosion archive of the '90's.

Records and merch will be available for sale, including a new instrumental
 release "Gnawing On the Bone".
