In a wonderfully chequered career Johnno has wore many hats,bought many T Shirts,had all sorts of jobs from the shop floor to the corporate boardroom and throughout has continue to make vibrant British Pop music.
He's been in a few bands too :-Corrosive,Pyjama Party,Back to Base & Deep Joy.
Snippet make Pop music from the leftfield;quirky & bouncy with a dash of folk & a splash of funk.

Let’s talk about us(from DIY) –“What a killer song, this is Possibly Snippet's finest moment yet "
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.”
“Made us laugh a lot, touched a nerve, we love it.”
Rob da Bank BBC Radio 1
“Wow, that sounds really great Johnno”
“I feel about Snippet much like John Peel felt about The Fall-Snippet: A National Indie Treasure...the most played BBC Introducing;Fresh on the net artist ever”
Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music
“Casson has a remarkable knack of developing music and channeling it through one of his three known aliases: Snippet, Old Tramp, and Johnno Casson. Ultimately, whether he’s Snippet, Old Tramp or just himself, he’s Johnno the incredibly talented and prolific bloke from Colchester”
