Johnny Sharp

Johnny Cigarettes is a pseudonym for Johnny Sharp
Johnny Sharp

Johnny (who wrote mostly as Johnny Cigarettes) made his name writing under a childhood nickname (he was the tallest in class and got sent to the local shop on illicit tobacco runs because he passed for 16) for NME from 1992 to 2000, before moving on to contribute to Vox, Loaded, Q, Mojo and The Guardian among others, as he still does today, while also editing and writing for various sports magazines and programmes. He is the author of the cryptically-titled highbrow 2009 tome Crap Lyrics and his works can be gazed upon at www.johnnysharp.net.
