Biography

“Holy Fuck blasted out opulent streams of saturated melody, clouds of glitter and confetti, nitrous-boosted dance dynamics…Holy Fuck set the bar awfully high.”
-Pitchfork Media

“The sound ranges from Nintendo-ish blips and beeps to space-age-y static and more typical electronic fare: huge freakout breakbeats anchored by swiveling bass guitar. What’s ... Read more in Amazon's Holy Fuck Store

Name a good band with two drummers?.....It's not easy is it .I can think of one off the top of my chrome dome and that's The Butthole Surfers and they are a truly great band. Other than that I'm struggling .I'm sure I saw some footage of Sigue Sigue Sputnik on TOTP 2 with two drummers , but they were an execrable marketing exercise more than anything else so don't really count. Led Zeppelin often sounded like they had dual drummers but they had John Bonham so that's understandable.
The reason I bring this up is that Holy F***(Should I use the asterisks bearing in mind their name is emblazoned all over the top of the page?) use two drummers and it shows. Even better than that it makes the music more exciting and gives it a rhythmic base that is suitably propulsive and yet diverse enough to bring something fresh to every track. More bands should try it, but what most bands really need to do is try writing some decent songs.
Holy F*** for the uninitiated is a lo-fi improvisational electronica band from Toronto, Canada. The band have been called "Toronto's evil super group". They are a part of Dependent Music, a music label/collective that began in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1994.The band uses live instrumentation and miscellaneous instruments and non-instruments (including a 35 mm film sequencer) to achieve electronic-sounding effects without the use of laptops or programmed backing tracks. The core of the band are Graham Walsh and Brian Borcherdt though the line up seems to be in a constant state of flux which neatly mirrors the music. The music ahhh yes.... is difficult to describe accurately but I think describing it as an antagonistic melding of percussive mayhem and adroitly manipulated sounds will do just fine.

This album is a freight train of musical genius. I can now understand how the name of the band came around 'cause it was my instant reaction to hearing the dumfounding sound that these guys produce.

But all of that is not being very specific. Holy F*** kick the ass off any other band that I have listened to this year for one reason alone, they have everything in this album!!! From your pounding insesant drums on opener 'Super Inuit' to a near pop song in the form of 'Lovely Allen'. 'Milkshake' is a funky song that will have you somewhere between wanting to be in the middle of a mosh pit having you face punched in by flailing arms, and wanting to dance like you're listening to James Brown. To follow on after all of that you have 'The Pulse' and 'Safari' to come. There is just no end to the mastery and utter genius in this album. It is only 9 tracks long but for that it is perfectly formed and lasts just the right length of time that you can get to the end and start again without it getting drawn out and boring.

So who is gonna like it. Well fans of Battles, Foals and other similars will die when they hear this and will try and convince you that it is the greatest thing to happen to music since the gramaphone, and if I'm honest I would say that they're right!!!

ENJOY!

another good band with two drummers? pink fairies, briefly... and there is a similarity in the throw it all in, get naked, throw it all up again, loon-stomp aesthetic underlying this... probably a great laugh live, but an albumn length recording? hmmm... yeah, if that's your cup of mushroom tea maybe....

This is an interesting listen and there are a few really great tunes but as a collection it is more interesting than enjoyable. Before reading other reviews I didn't know much about the group but they are certainly interesting enough that I look forward to hearing more of them.
