Johnny Fist's band has been together in various guises since 1995. They have been known variously as Johnny Fist & The Urban Casuals, Johnny Fist & The Loose Forward Trio, Johnny Fist & The Wankers and Johnny Fist & The Post-Modern Lovers to name but a few of the more memorable monikers; Johnny's backing band adopts a different name for every show they play.
