Holy Moly & The Crackers are a seven-piece ‘gypsy folk rock’ band from the UK. Founders Conrad Bird, Ruth Patterson and ‘Squeezebox’ Rosie lead the band with compelling charismatic style.
They released their debut album, First Avenue, in October 2012 and an EP, Lilly, a year later – described as ‘a re-imagining of three traditional folk/blues songs that evokes eras of whiskey and guns on modern punk folk steroids’. Their single A Punk Called Peter (2015) is ‘a sort of New Orleans funeral march mixed with some fine and highly danceable reggae’. Their latest single, Burning Back Wheel, was self-released in 2016. They have recently made a new album with top rock/pop producer Matt Terry at Vada Studios (The Enemy, Ocean Colour Scene, The Wonderstuff etc) which will be released in 2017.
