Guilty Parents on Holy Roar!
Ok, so over the next weeks i'm hoping to introduce to everyone around 4 new bands on Holy Roar - the majority of them being a focus for 2010! As well as this I will be talking about other upcoming releases and plans for existing Holy Roar artists - exciting times! I think 2010 is going to be our busiest year yet....
First up, and seemingly out of nowhere is Guilty Parents from Nottingham.
They have beards, beauty and beautiful beards. Not bad going.
We will be hitting out an EP by the band this autumn, 100 copies or digital, mega limited, hand screened packaging - think along the lines of the Ergon Carousel ep and the first Holy State cdep. Got it? Got it. Good.
Musically the band say they are influenced by "Die Kreuzen, Make-Up, COC, Mummies, Bad Form,
Bad Seeds, Flag, Sonics, Penetraiters, Poison Idea, Gories, Murder City Devils, Gun Club..." - i'm a fucking idiot though, so i'll just say this is no pretension, ultra rock'n'roll with a fucking punk as fuck heart. Its the tightest sloppy lo-fi rock band ever. For real - this dichotomy exists within this band.
They have already played with Part Chimp, Souvaris, Lovvers, Male Bonding, Army of Flying Robots, Crocodiles, Ramming Speed, An Albatross and Limp Wrist, which is cool!
This good already, how good will they get? Only the passing sands of our earthly existence can answer.
