Falling Down

by Snippet



Falling Down is released as a single on 1 August.

Snippet is the work of one man – UK based Indie musician Johnno Casson.

He is the by-product of a misspent childhood on a Hackney council estate watching Czechoslovakian cartoons on TV and listening to all manner of wonderfulness on pirate radio. Johnno’s musical existence came to light purely through a canny knack of attending the right nightclubs, which brought about an accidental role in all manner of key moments in London’s club culture (from The Mud Club and The Wag to Shoom and Trip to The Sunday Social and beyond).

This led him into working with the likes of Andrew Weatherall (Primal Scream), James Lavelle (Mo’ Wax/UNKLE) and Adrian Sherwood (On-U-Sound) and touring extensively as the lead singer with acid house movers and trip hop shakers Deep Joy.

Johnno tried jobs other than music to pay for his nightclub obsession but he was rubbish at all of them - Caretaker, Pen Holder Maker, Railman on London Underground and even Relationship Manager - not a job you want to fail at – luckily music has been a constant and he’s half decent at it too.

Staggeringly prolific, Johnno releases music under a variety of different names, including his own & Old Tramp in addition to Snippet. He is a blogger and long time new champion for Fresh On The Net, he also is the producer of the arts & music organisation The Warm and Toasty Club.

Over the last 10 years Snippet has been forging a wonderfully vibrant path, releasing four albums & six EP’s, which have attracted a world wide following to this very unique brand of wonky electronic indie pop music from the leftfield.

Falling Down is released as a single ahead of the 5th Snippet album ‘Future Melancholy Pop Music’ which is currently being recorded with Dutch producer Wim Oudijk for release later in the year.


“Snippet: A National Indie Treasure”
Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music

“Dry of humour and lo-fi of sound, the skewed pop of Colchester’s Snippet is reminiscent of early Beck.”

Q Magazine

“Pop genius”

“Touched a nerve, we love it.”

Rob da Bank BBC Radio 1



Falling down
Falling down

Wake up , take stock, where did I leave my jeans at?
Rub eyes, scratch head, where did I leave my greens at?
Wash face, flick hair, we like to paint a vision
Get dressed, go out, we make the best decisions

Falling down, we like falling down
Falling down, beats a life of laying down

Bass drum, sunshine, where do I sign my name at?
Good friends, sweet times, where do I land my frame at?
Laughter, all night, we’re here to grab it swiftly
Fall down, get up and make out mark on history

Falling down, (all around the town) we like falling down
Falling down, beats a life of laying down (we sway from side to side)

Falling down, we like falling down
Falling down, oh yeah we like falling down

Falling down, we like falling down
Falling down, beats a life of laying down
