Holy Fuck w/ Buck 65; Whelan’s – 19 November 2010

I have to say I was really looking forward to this gig and it did not disappoint.

Holy Fuck have always fascinated me in terms of the mass array of instruments and devices they use on stage. Friday’s gig was no exception with Brian Borcherdt getting proceedings underway by using none other than an old Moviola film editing  machine to produce the most interesting, mind altering sounds imaginable. Throw in about 6-7 quick keyboard changes, a hell of a lot of killswitch use and heaps of wah and whammy action and you get the idea. As for Buck 65, vocals over pre recorded material via iTunes just didn’t cut it for me. Enjoyable all the same.

The collective group that was Ardiff has run its course people.

After 2 years as a full band and god knows how many as a solo performer we/it has fallen somewhere by the wayside.

But… there is some salvation to revel in.

Myself, Rob and Louise are now joined by the titanic force of Dotts and Ken in Comeonlivelong and you may be pleased to hear that we  have our first major outing this Saturday supporting cult favorites Kill! Kill! Death! Death! in Crawdaddy.

We’ve spent the last few weeks honing out about ten original tunes that fall somewhere in the mix of post rock synth folk!

Doors are at 8pm

Show starts at 8:15 sharp.
