Catchy, energetic, foot-tapping and beat-driven all describe the sound.
The message that John Punch has for you comes across in the music and the band's feelings about the message. "All around good times with friends and passionate music ... [highlighting] social issues and injustice ... and the absurdity of how people continue to treat each other today," Cory will tell you. The band reflects a growing social movement against the mainstream, which Canada seems to be leading.
But who the fuck is John Punch? Cory came up with the name: "I originally heard of John Punch from the Howard Zinn book ["A People's History of The United States"] and ... it's an awful story of racism that more people should know about, and none of us should ever forget. I'm not sure entirely why, but I'm attracted to that man's slave name that was given to him."
The John Punch sound could be the soundtrack to a revolution — or at least to some great parties.
