Holy Moly and the Crackers
Holy Moly and the Crackers are a "gypsy folk and roll" band, based in the UK. They released their debut album "First Avenue" in October 2012 and an EP "Lilly" a year later - described as "a re-imagining of three traditional folk/blues songs that evokes eras of whiskey and guns on modern punk folk steroids". Tracks from the album and EP have been played by Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and leading music critic Mike Harding.
After only two years they are making an impact on both the local and national live music scene; they have played well over 200 shows throughout the UK, including sell out concerts in London, the Midlands, Yorkshire, Newcastle and Edinburgh. In October 2013 the band toured internationally in Europe. This summer the band performed at festivals across the country, including main stage shows at Galtres Festival and Cornbury Festival, where they opened for Jools Holland.
Holy Moly and the Crackers are influenced by an eclectic range of styles and artists; the honest grit and gravel of Woody Guthrie, the gypsy bone-cage burlesque of Gogol Bordello, the spectral clarity of Joni Mitchell. As such they play a lively, moonshine mix of Romani, Americana and contemporary British folk-rock.
