Try Some Hollowbelly

Posted: June 27, 2010 in Alternative, Blues, Music, Rock

We discovered Hollowbelly via the excellent and he’s made a pretty big impression on our listening this weekend. Joe, our youngest, listening in the car observed “he has a voice like lightning” and we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Hollowbelly plays the sort of stomping, raw, primeval blues so beloved of Reverend Deadeye or Scott H Biram, yet rather than being from the deep South, he is from the North…of England.

Alongside Seasick Steve he is the UK’s best known CigarBox Guitar player, but he brings a English punk rock sensibility to his playing, a sense of the righteous and the curse of the damned. And on album Punk Northern And Blue he is raging with fire in his belly and sulphur in the air.

Watch the video for Shotgun below and download a couple of tracks – it’ll improve your weekend like it did Joe’s and mine – irrespective of whether England beat Germany or not this afternoon.
