This is the promo video for The Madness Method’s first single, Better Without You , released in 2010. Quirky and very funny, it was produced and directed by Sean Tu, and filmed in Melbourne. All the acting was done by the band and friends, as is the case in all the Madness Method’s videos, and Mandy was heavily involved in the story-boarding. If Jon looks a bit worse for wear, it’s probably because he’d run the Melbourne Marathon in the morning and filming began at lunchtime. He did, however, manage to snatch some shut-eye in the breaks!
"I’m privileged to have worked with Jon on tour in 2016. His skill on the bass and his vocal talent are exemplary and his work ethic is incredible. He’s earned my respect both as a musician and a person."
Eddie Allen, Guitarist - Marty Wilde and The Wildcats. Ex Editor Guitarist Magazine.
"Apart from being a genuinely lovely guy he is also a top bass man. Check out the JENNER, MELLOR rhythm section on the last OUCH album MEDWAY DOG..".
Clive Jenner, drummer - Groove Armada, Lenny Kravitz, The Proclaimmers, The Freestylers
"First and foremost Jon is an excellent bass player with a superb knack for writing lyrical, melodic bass lines for original material. If you’re playing covers, Jon is not only a quick learner – but more importantly when the parts have entered his mind they stay there and will be delivered consistently at any time under any circumstance."
Preben Raunsbjerg, Producer and guiatrist - James Burton's band
"His bass playing and harmonies are second to none in all the different styles of music that we covered and he is the most honest and hardworking bloke I have ever worked with.”
Kevin Taylor, Ouch!
