John Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the 1980’s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. With a new release on the Popboomerang label, John comes full circle. The name of his first band, has been referenced to give the album its title: JFK and the Midlife Crisis. This is a concept album of sorts with songs relating to each other to form a loose narrative. The songs, some autobiographical and some fictional, tell the story of a deaf, dumb and bald middle aged musician looking back on a life lived to an independent music soundtrack. The narrator remembers with fondness and regret the life of an inner city musician negotiating the twists and turns of love, loss, marriage, divorce, family and friends.
