Johnny Hazard - Useless (PIF 31)
Johnny Liadal from Haugesund are for the rock interested mostly known as Johnny Hazard. As this he gave out a solo cassette in 1985 called ”Useless”. It was released by two different cassette labels at the same time. The sleeves has a few differences, the biggest is that the first track on side B has different title. It is the same recording and Liadal couldn’t give an explanation to this. He said that the listener has to choose witch title she/he wants. The titles are; ”Hunger Of Man” or ”Hungry On Man”. The release got a few fanzine reviews that were off the best kind.
As Hazard he gave out the fanzines ”Døgnflue” and ”Mutasjon” early in the 80`s. At the same time he played in the punk band Blister and from 1982 to 86 in a more new wave band called Im nebel. They was a mix between Velvet Underground and Joy Division. Im nebel changed style and name in 86 to pop and the name The Colors Turned Red. In 88 they released their debut album and in December same year they broke up.
Liadal has since worked with booking on Flytten in Haugesund through out the 90`s. From 1990 to 2002 he also was a musician in the band Månen. As that on several tours and releases. On several occasions he has been DJing. In 2004 The Colors Turned Red was reunited for a jubilee concert in Haugesund. That was so fun that they stayed together for a track on a Christmas compilation and a EP the following year. In 2006 the gave out their second album “All The Way Up”. Since January 2007 has Liadal been working with booking on Folken in Stavanger.
