Holy Fudge


Late in 2007, Canada's Holy F*** released their second LP (imaginatively titled, 'LP'), which contained a series of frantic, pounding slabs of noise that would go on to form a substantial part of my soundtrack for the following year. Mrs S & I saw them in concert in April 2008 - and they fair blew our socks off that night too. Sandwiched among the aural chaos of 'LP', is the, erm, lovely 'Lovely Allen', an epically catchy tune that, were it not for that moniker, would surely have gained them far wider recognition than it did.

There has been no new music from Holy F*** since their 3rd LP, 2010's 'Latin', but suddenly, out of the blue, they're back. One evening last week, with little fanfare, Marc Riley premièred 'Tom Tom', the first taster from a brand new album, 'Congrats', scheduled for release at the end of May. It's like they haven't been away.

Holy F*** are new to me but they sound great. I've to investigate for more. Thank you Swede.

I've only heard a handful of their tracks and indeed Lovely Allen is a corker and not what I expected. Would they be more accessible if it weren't for that moniker? A band I liked back in the late nineties were called Crazy Penis but their blend of nu-disco probably was falling on deaf hears and thus changed their name to Crazy P......Oh yeah, what about the charmingly titled An@l C&#T!?

Interesting. I really like the second one.

"Tom Tom" is a splendid racket. Desreves to be played loud.

George said...

And "lovely Allen" is also very good. This lot might be worth investigating, Swede

Been on Bandcamp, and amongst other things it's revelaed a track call Holy Fuck, My Balls. by someone called Datapark. A lot of noodling electronica. Didn't live up to the promise of the title.
