Gorky's Zygotic Mynci have teamed up with UK cult TV hosts Adam & Joe to make the video for their new single 'Sweet Johnny'.

The single, released on May 25, is backed with two new tracks - 'Un Hogan Trist' and 'Mifi Mihafan'. It's the first release from the band's forthcoming fifth LP, tentatively titled 'Gorky 5', due out late this summer.

The band members feature in the promo clip alongside toys from the duo's hit Friday night series The Adam & Joe Show shown in the UK on Channel 4. The show includes an opening sequence where the pair use toys to act out irreverent versions of famous big and little screen moments.

The 'Sweet Johnny' video depicts the band as 'Singing Gorky's Zygotic Mynci Action Figures' while the toys act out spoof versions of famous pop promos - including The Verve's 'Bittersweet Symphony', Supergrass' 'Alright', Prodigy's 'Firestarter', Blur's 'Song 2' and Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

Gorky's singer Euros Childs says Adam & Joe approached the band about making a video after Gorky's appeared on the 'Vinyl Justice' slot of their show. "We just got talking after and they're big fans, especially Adam, so we just thought we'd give them a go." It's the first pop video Adam & Joe have attempted.

Gorky's embark on a short tour of the UK and Ireland to coincide with the release of 'Sweet Johnny'. They play Cork Nancy Spains (May 22), Dublin Mean Fiddler (23), Glasgow Renferry (25), Manchester Roadhouse (26) and London Camden Dingwalls (28). The band also appear at John Peel's Meltdown Festival at London's South Bank this summer, as well as Reading Festival. Tickets for the shows are available from the NME 24-hour ticketline on 0870 1212 500. Calls are charged at national standard rate.
