Thanks for the memories, Sweden Rock Festival, but we've gotta high tail it to Spain!!! The final 3 days and the final country of our 2011 Summer Euro Tour. Thursday, June 9 finds the lads at RockSound in Barcelona, Friday the 10th is in Bilbao at Sala Azkena, then we wrap things up in fine fashion at Gruta 77 in Madrid on the 11th. A hearty thank you to everyone that's given a helping hand or just come on out and enjoyed the shows.
Us poor saps who couldn't make the Euro trip have been left with the task of clearing out some of the vintage merch that has slipped through the cracks. We've set up an eBay page and will be listing the stuff as we get it sorted out. A handful of different shirt styles, colors, and sizes will be hitting the internet as we get to 'em. Just go to eBay and search for Five Horse Johnson shirt. You'll see our stuff. If the US Post Office will deliver to your country, Five Horse Johnson Industries will sell you a shirt!

2010-11-19The song "Lightning When I need" by FHJ is featured on the soundtrack to the 2009 documentary "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia". "Worshipped by some, hated by others, the legend of the White family started growing after the release of the cult documentary The Dancing Outlaw, which put the spotlight on eldest son Jesco and his love of mountain dancing, Elvis and huffing gasoline. The rest of the family remained in the shadows until The Wild and Wonderful Whites focused on the less celebrated members of the clan. Though the rest never learned the art of mountain dancing, they all share his talent to be alternately poetic, funny, and insanely self-destructive."
