A Retro Filled Electronica Rodeo

Holy sh*t, Holy F**k’s name offends some — those people aren’t using the right synth anyways. By Kyle Mullin for Edmonton’s SEE Magazine, Oct. 8 2010

Beads of sweat clung to Brian Borcherdt’s back until his drenched shirt felt like another soppy layer of skin. That same kind of clammy tightness felt like a longing embrace throughout the tiny room, gripping the audience that was bobbing within the slender inches between the walls and the stage that was emitting chronically aching electronica.

“This is a basement club, just a little concrete block, and I love it,” says the panting front man of electro dynamos Holy F**k, during a break before an encore of the same synth anthems the band will bring to the Pawn Shop on Oct. 8. “Not to say we don’t like playing big festivals, that’s mostly what we do these days. But this is the first really good show we’ve had in a long time, playing sweat boxes like this reminds me of why I started playing in the first place.”
