If you read all BOUNTY song titles at once it goes "BOUNTY; john, clump" which was a tongue-in-cheek way of saying "BOUNTY; by jonna & claes", so I understand why they are on the album. It's important to notice there was a nine month gap (a pregnancy!) between the release of Y and ; john. What happened in these nine months is a mystery, but something definitely derailed their plans - "BOUNTY" was supposed to be the name of the band/project, not an album. I don't think they were even thinking of releasing those songs as an album, they were probably meant to act as preludes for something more specific (probably the Mouth of a River album), hence the songs being so at odds with each other, but then ; john came along and the project took its course. In the first interviews she gave (I swear to god I can't find them anymore, but I'm not lying...) she said something about not expecting the YouTube videos getting so much traction, much less going viral. I speculate that the relatively big buzz around T and Y at the time (MTV reporting it was wild) made them stick to the original plan of releasing everything as YouTube videos and online singles. In these nine months I suspect they might have looked for a label. There is a direct chronologic connection between ;john, clump, the 20101104 video, the first concert and KIN. So yes, one could argue ; john and clump would logically fit on KIN better from a chronological stand point, BUT! The themes of the videos make it very clear that the Jonna we see in ; john and clump is not the same we see in sever. In fact, the title 'sever' tells it as it is: it's a break up in narrative and in release method (remember KIN was released before BOUNTY as an album). We see her get "impregnated" (what a terrible word) at the end of BOUNTY and then she only gives birth around rascal/goods, so I kind of see KIN as her "maternity album", the baby here being the album itself. Lots of incongruent information but what I'm ultimately trying to say is, they didn't seem to have any intentions on releasing an album before they did the first In Concert and then Way Out West. ; john and clump are on BOUNTY because "BOUNTY" is literally everything that was left from the first "wave" of the project, like a greatest hits of sorts. sever was the first single of theirs where we can notice a "cycle" going on, from the cliffhanger endings in KIN to its evolving single covers. There is of course a lot more to say about the implications that "john" is the name we give to the clientelle of sex workers, but I intend on boring you to death with all that when ; john gets eliminated.
