BLOODY HOLLIES - Yours Until the Bitter End digipack - CD
"The trio's hybrid of punk rock and hard blues really, really works. High-energy rock with good songs is pretty rare these days. With stratospheric vocals, take-no-prisoners guitar work and a rhythm section that won't quit, this crunchingly-produced CD is one of the best hard rock albums I've heard in a while. Also they have an awesome name. Bloody Hollies - get it?" - Blogcritics
"Yours Until the Bitter End" is a work that reflects a lengthy career that fully embraces The Bloody Hollies' vast influences while at the same time maintaining the band's unique sound of explosive, over-driven mayhem balanced with intelligently thought-out songwriting. What is most impressive about The Bloody Hollies, however, is the diversity of their strengths, ranging from 70's classic rock, Americana blues, to an even power-pop songwriting style.
Many who are familiar with the band's sound know them by their trademark murder-themed blues/rock anthems that remind listeners of the 60's and 70's golden age of rock & roll. The new album still embraces the dark side of raw garage punk, but comes armed with a more eclectic array of songwriting and musicianship. But don't let the touches of organ, violin, and xylophone fool you, the band's hybrid of blues and rock & roll continue to shine more impressively than ever. The Bloody Hollies recorded in San Diego, but enlisted the expertise of Jim Diamond in Detroit, a familiar friend of the bandÕs that helped bring the sound of this record to its full potential.
The Bloody Hollies was one of the last bands to be invited to play on John Peel's "Peel Sessions". Although John Peel passed away a week before the session was scheduled, The Bloody Hollies went on to record three songs and their "Peel Session" was played on BBC Radio 1 at the end of November 2004 by interim DJ Rob Da Bank.
