holy kiss Under Noon of Night (LP + CD, £11.50)label: hungry eye
The Holy Kiss's 3rd full length is the first with the lineup that includes Panther on bass and multi-instrumentalist Alli (formerly of the Cold War) on guitar. Singer Matty is now freed from guitar for an even more unrestrained vocal delivery with his distinctive wail. Top notch, grimy blues-influenced rock 'n' roll that you've come to expect from these Bay Area veterans of 8 years. Throughout the course of their career, they've drawn comparisons to some of the old guard of Australian post-punk/rock (These Immortal Souls, Crime and the City Solution), punk-y roots rock like the Gun Club, or more contemporary names like 16 Horsepower and Black Heart Procession, but fans of the band are more likely to know them for their raucous live shows. Under Noon of Night catches the Holy Kiss at the top of their musical game. This LP is limited to 500 copies with a silkscreened cover.
