Back in the 80s, this guy was in a super obscure but great Jesus & Mary Chain influenced post-punk band called "Daisy Hill Puppy Farm"

They released a 12" of four noisey, melodic tracks and a 7" of a cover of Blondie's "Heart Of Glass" To bad it's all impossible to find. I contacted Johann and he didn't even know where to find them.
