As the launch of our debut EP draws closer, we thought it was about time to release the first of what will be many gifts for you. 'Have You Ever Seen A Fat Kid Dance Like That?' is the first single we have released from our EP set to be released this December.

Along with it are the re-recordings of two songs that won't be appearing on the EP that have been a major part of our live set for the last 12 months.

To sweeten the deal even further, we have not put a price on any of these songs as we want you to download them for free.

Put them on your iPod. Play them in your car. Blast them at your plump cousin's 14th birthday gathering and relive the magic as friends and family alike find themselves asking the age old question, 'Have You Ever Seen A Fat Kid Dance Like That?'

Established in 2011, Great John Himself are a band from Melbourne, Australia specialising in unashamedly fun roots, blues and ska music with a modern twist.
