MIRANDA |||| atomic logic |||| GO SUBLIMINAL


"After listening to Stephen Duros' new SSRI release, I woke up the next morning thinking the album was called Manzilla, and the cover graphic was a body chick like Jennifer Lopez with a reptilian head and a saw-tooth smile. A dream, of course.

"I got my chance one night, and took it. Afterwards the poets were buying me beers, laying their scripture on me. That's how I got my handle, Midnite Johnny... steam shooting up from a manhole on a wet, windy night."
