The God Damn Whores - Sneak preview of Heya-Heya-Heya - Heya - Ho! EP
From the Cardiacs to The God Damn Whores 'Random' Jon Poole has provided us with some weird and wonderful aural trips.
He seems to make music that occupies the grey area between the lands of madness and sanity while occasionally making raiding parties into both territories.
Nothing should fit, but it does.
There isn't even such a thing as a typical Jon Poole fan.
Instead disparate individuals are drawn from the fringes to pay homage to whatever the fuck it is he does.
We expect the unexpected and with this sneak preview of tracks from the forthcoming Heya-Heya-Heya-Heya-Ho! album that is just what we get.
More of the unexpected.
Glamarchy, prog rock, punk and a healthy does of the absurd rise to the surface and it's all fantastic. Macho Sapiens is hilarious.
Jon better watch his back or the heavy metal hordes may just decide to issue a spandex fatwa on his arse for daring to highlight the homoerotic aspects of being a fan.
Elsewhere the music just soars.
It takes a minute to get into it as everything sound so busy, but there's beauty in the chaos.
A wonderful manic lost the plot beauty.
Remember how in Betty Blue Beatrice Dalle was so obviously a sandwich short of a picnic, but there was still that allure.
Well that's the appeal that The God Damn Whores have.
Getting involved is going to be problematic, but no two days will ever be the same.
