Band Of Holy Joy

Band Of Holy Joy

Profile:
BAND OF HOLY JOY has existed in one form or another for over thirty years now, having kept the faith with their original ideals whilst forever pushing new boundaries. They have their own show Bad Punk on London’s largest independent art radio station Resonance FM, often extending into a live audiovisual performance in theatres, art fairs and remote locations. The band still receives much critical acclaim for the albums they release, the latest being The Land Of Holy Joy out on September 21, 2015 on the Stereogram Recordings. Driven by music, beauty and life, they still put on an emotionally charged show of noise and visuals, passion and song.

"When it comes to music, nobody engages to greater effect than the Band Of Holy Joy. And don’t ask me how they keep doing it, but their new album The Land Of Holy Joy arguably represents a new benchmark even for them in their search for warmth in the wilderness"
Glenn Airey - Louder Than War

“Johny is the patron saint and torch singer for a tier of humanity increasingly ground down by bastard, callous, remote and indifferent powers that be, especially in this here big city of London”.
David Stubbs – The Quietus and Author of Future Days

P.S. Your ultra-savvy list would have been the golden textbook… Too bad you fumbled by adding one truly brilliant outfit.

Allowed an opinion. But so painfully far off the mark, bro. Esp. your lame last line.
