Band of Holy Joy

Margin walkers and midnight drifters, Band of Holy Joy have wandered liminal landscapes of their own making for 3 decades now. The weirdness and wildness of the landscape they stagger through, the askew vision like a crash between Coleridge, Brecht and David Peace, the literary allusions and poetry, the strangeness of it all... Constantly interested in exploring underneath the surface of culture, drawing from the contemporary subcultures and countercultures, revisiting the past in order to time travel forward. The Band Of Holy Joy have released a double cassette 'City of Tales' featuring previously unreleased music from 1985 as well as new material from 2012. The band also produce a musical cut-up of today’s newspaper headlines recycled live every Friday on (...) Such A Nice Radio Show - their weekly slot on Resonance 104.4FM. A cultural piracy raiding doomed melancholy and gentrified mediocrity. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
