july 24th: SKIP JENSEN & HOLY COBRAS

THURSDAY JULY 24TH ROCK N’ ROLL PIZZA PARTY presents

SKIP JENSEN is from montreal and is an ex-member of DEMON’S CLAWS and SCAT RAG BOOSTERS and now plays as a one-man band..

with a paint-stick taped to one foot, a tambourine to the other and a harmonica and guitar slung around his neck he proceeded to bash out and record some of the most original sounding tunes to be heard in a dog’s age. Heavily influenced by the likes of Jesse Mae Hemphill, Doctor Ross and even Hasil Adkins the songs are a mish-mash of blues, punk, rockabilly, folk, bluegrass and rock n’ roll. Flat out wailin’ and stompin, riled up and volatile; these songs burn! A soul ripped out, soaked in gasoline then thrown on to barbeque to it’s right degree of burntness.

HOLY COBRAS have been heading more and more into noisy post-punk territory. just one listen to “he’s rubber i’m real” the new song they’ve put up shows them straying away from their original garage punk type of sound into something dark, noisy, minimal and repetitive with tons of swirling effects and electronics.
