I am one of those guys who knows most of his friends over the Internet. While my real life friends waste no time making fun of me for this, when you are a music whore who lives in a village of 700 people, you need the vastness of the Internet to listen to music that’s not on the radio. So it should come as no surprise that most of my Internet friends are also music whores of varying degrees, and while they don’t recommend many of the bands I end up writing about here, my friend Kalyn recommended The Bloody Hollies and they are obviously being written about! Or at least the backstory is.
The Bloody Hollies are one of the most rocking bands I’ve heard in some time. Their singer is one of their strongest assets, going from singing that almost sounds British to screaming at a moment’s notice. As he yells on The Rain, “Sometimes you get what you’re asking for! / And everybody always gets what they deserve!” I will change the context to mean that while not everybody is asking to be rocked, they all deserve it. So don’t be ashamed of wanting to be rocked, you deserve it!
