Some of you might remember the name Honkeyfinger from way, way back when he was the 25th entry in our Future Hits column. Well, he’s got together with some of his friends to create a new night of “face melting heavy swamp psych rock” by the name of Greasy Noise, the first of which kicks off on Saturday night right here in London.
Honkeyfinger is a one man band.
He comes from Bethnal Green and plays skronk blues beast rock.
Stripped back and amped up - the sound of one heavy assed live band hotwired through one body.
Lapsteel twisted and fuzzed to hell like you never heard before, guttural screeching harmonica, a-rhythmic floor drum pounding, paraplegic beatbox looping, and wild dog howling is the Honkeyfinger way. . .
Start with pre-war country blues. Forget the 1950s Read more on Last.fm
Honkeyfinger on Thrash Hits
May 5th, 2009
Thrash Hits stumbled upon Honkeyfinger while drunk in a rather questionable drinking establishment. Yeah, it happens. And his bluesman-gone-bad, one-man-band act got us wet. Juicy wet.
From: London via Birmingham, UK
Sounds like: Tom Waits, Black Sabbath, homebrew voodoo
