Video: Jon Toogood’s New Solo Project, The Adults

Jon Toogood’s solo album has been a long time coming, but it’s finally due out this June. Now we have the first track from the record – the song’s called ‘Nothing To Lose’ and it’s been posted under the name The Adults (we hear the project will be released under the name Jonny and The Adults) and this one features Ladi 6, Shayne Carter and Gary Sullivan. Watch the video for it below and let us know what you think of it in the comments section.


  1. James says:

    Needs moar Shayne Carter

  2. Eamonn says:

    better than shihad

  3. Gary Sullivan is the greatest drummer to come outta NZ since that drummer guy in Shihad, whats his name? Wayne? Bill? Ted? Two chord minimalist angular punk. Ladi 6 kills it.

  4. Alastair says:

    Amazing! If the rest of the album is half as good as this we are in for a real treat.

  5. Shot, Ladi 6 on a dimmer track!!! Did anyone notice the guy from Shihad plays bass on this track? :p

    Production is quite nice. Shayne Carter as well I’m guessing?

  6. My fave moment is when Shayne Carter sonically jizzes all over everything, releasing the tension that’s been building up over the smoothness. This bodes well for the album.

  7. It’s okay. Yeah, just okay. All the peeps involved sound great and do their job well. But still sounds like a demo jam for something potentially terrific.

  8. Noodle says:

    Interesting collaboration. Sufficiently different from Shihad. Unspectacular but promising. Crap band name though.

  9. Boils with tension. This has everything that Shihad lacks – it’s the opposite of anthemic. It suggests things, rather than overstates them. Fantastic.
