Coverage: Holy Fuck/Foals split 12″

October 13, 2008

Last year I wrote about Holy Fuck doing a split 7″ with their tourmates Celebration – each of them covered a song by the other band. They handed out the vinyl at the concerts, and also made the songs available for digital download. They must have been pretty happy about it, because they are doing it again, this time on their UK tour with Oxford math-rockers Foals (above). Holy Fuck covered Foals’ “Balloons” and Foals covered Holy Fuck’s amazing “Super Inuit.” The 12″ vinyl is available for purchase (limited edition of 250), or you can download both MP3s here.

Concert notes: Holy Fuck

November 30, 2007

[Middle East Upstairs, Cambridge, MA; November 29, 2007]

Holy Fuck lived up to their name at their show last night. Their music is like the bastard lovechild of Battles and Dan Deacon – while less virtuosic than the former and less straight-out batshit than the latter, they possess a tremendous anarcho-punk energy. And they were clearly really, really having fun onstage. Plus they were handing out free 7″ singles – a split disc, with a Celebration remix of their song “Frenchy’s” on one side, and their remix of a Celebration song on the other. If you’re not lucky enough to catch their act and pick up your own copy of the vinyl at one of their shows, you can download both MP3s here.
