Noseflutes - The Ron Johnson 12"s
Another interesting band on Ron Johnson. They remind me a bit of The Nightingales. They add a lot of percussion in some of the tracks and some of these have an African feel.
Prior to the Ron Johnson records, Noseflutes released the 'Girth' 12" and 'Several Young Men Ignite Hardboard Stump' LP on Reflex Records (Very Things, And Also The Trees,...). After Ron Johnson folded, the band released another two albums on their own Rictus label: 'Zib Zob And His Kib Kob' and 'Mellow Throated'.
There was a site on Noseflutes but it's gone but I found an interview for No Class fanzine here.
'The Ravers' 12" is a John Peel session.
