Biography

A post-punk supergroup of sorts, Holy Smokes are comprised of drummer extraordinaire Zach Hill (Hella/The Ladies/Team Sleep/Nervous Cop/Zach Hill and Mick Barr) and featuring Rob Crow (Pinback/Thingy/Heavy Vegetable/Optiganally Yours), Carson McWhirter (the Advantage, Jonathan Hischke of the Flying Luttenbachers), and co-conspirators Dan Elkan, Ian Hernandez, and J.R. Thompson.

Their second album, Talk To Your Kids About Gangs, is the culmination of a recording process that began in 2003, The group first assembled for the album “Masculine Drugs”, a soundtrack to a book penned by founder Zach Hill and released by Suicide Squeeze Records. On their Skin Graft debut, Holy Smokes arrive fully formed. Where the band’s debut offered a discordant free-jazz-noise-rock shock, “Talk To Your Kids About Gangs” emerges as a harmonic tangle of pitches and thunder claps, that as they unravel, come into focus as intelligible, infectious oddments of grooving sonance.
