You may have noticed that we have a little thing for Johnny Foreigner here at GFP. The bands new album Johnny Foreigner Vs Everything received the first 10/10 we’ve ever given and we followed it up with a huge interview with front-man Lex. Now in return the band have sent GoldFlakePaint, and you of course, a present in the form of three mix-tapes (one from each member of the band) containing the songs that inspired them while making their wonderful new record.

Here’s a little note from Lex to explain things a little more;

“hello. we thought that with all exposure our music is getting and the praise being lavished on us recently (10/10 in the nme!!), it’d be a nice break for you all not to have to listen to/talk about us for a few hours. Don’t worry tho, we’re still in the background being awesome! Imagine we all have a massive crush on you, and because we are niche indie snobs, mixtapes are our only form of self expression. snog, marry, avoid?

nb – please dont answer that question, it will only bring tears.”
So there you have it folks; snog, marry or avoid? Here are each of their choices to make that decision a little easier. Also, because we’re nice, you can download the entire thing via the link below until someone tells us off.
