Founded on September 30, 2011, Johnny 2 Fingers & the Deformities are a trio of rock n’ roll heat scores from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, led by a short, hairy man (whom was born missing digits) defying the odds and using what they got to deliver a loud, weird and woolly performance.
THE TALE OF JOHNNY 2 FINGERS
Born at a very young age, John Dale was raised by loving middle class parents; he grew up in the middle of the Canadian prairies with all the privileges one could ask for. However John was born with a hideous physical mutation that science could never explain. He was picked on and ridiculed endlessly while growing up, eventually turning to the friendship of insects, snakes and cartoons.
During his teenage years he developed a taste for professional wrestling and rock n roll. Realizing he could never be the great wrestler he envisioned, he picked up the guitar. Unfortunately John's ego spiraled out of control, He began making boisterous and outlandish comments; claiming he was the voice of the unloved and forgotten... Claiming he was a hero... a humanitarian...
Well, John's selfish intentions became all too apparent. He developed a serious addiction to slurpees and cheeseburgers; becoming increasingly aggressive. He hired a general pack of goons dubbed The Deformities to do his bidding. John was just another good apple turned bad; feeling like the world wronged him and it had a little splainin' to do. He vowed to teach society a lesson, one gig at a time... Johnny 2 Fingers was born!
"Right now, there’s a guitarist from Moose Jaw who might be the saviour of Saskatchewan guitar rock and he’s missing a bunch of his fingers…. Johnny 2 Fingers & the Deformities take their cues from southern-fried boogie rock and infuse it with a boozy belt of punk rock for good measure.” - Ominocity.
