Lazy Dreadlock HOLIDAY With Wacky Storyteller JAMES DOMESTIC

Daily electricity to load your batteries

28 August 2022

Artist: James Domestic (Essex/Suffolk, UK)

Who: Member of former hardcore gangs The Domestics), plus Pi$$er,
Tokyo Lungs
and half a dozen more. He’s a punk poet, DJ, singer/songwriter,
doctorate owner, producer, and inspirator of young punk bands.

Last April JAMES DOMESTIC had his shake and swing debut LP,
baptized Carrion Repeating out in the open.

Turn Up The Volume wrote: “One moment he sits back for a sort of lazy Mike Skinner
musing, then again he turns it up like Sleaford Mods do with sharp-toothed gusto, but overall the idiosyncratic vocality, the ingenious verbality, and the stream of catchy tunes of the late genial legend Ian Dury are omnipresent and it works like a magnet. Lots of reasons to be cheerful.”

Now, before this hot summer is over Domestic drops his Holiday single off the LP.
Another example of telling us one of his wacky stories, this time about a travel
agency hostess and her boring job.

Musically, it’s a lazy dreadlock-reggae-holiday tune with that familiar mellow
60s organ versus schizophrenic guitars, while Domestic gets his shit together
with a swim, a good book and a pina colada. Sounds like a fun holiday to me.

Yeah, of course I do a bit of tourist stuff
But then I go where the locals go
I speak to the people, have some fun with ‘em
Get the spirit of the place; the feel y’know
Next day? Maybe some pool time
Helps me work through my hangover and get my shit together
A swim, a good book, a pina colada
And dinner with my new local friends tonight, alright?

Is this your holiday?
It makes no sense to me
Is this your holiday?
Cos It looks like work to me
And I guess if you’re happy
It’s no business of mine
And I guess if you’re happy
You could show it some time

Catch the vibe here…

PICK OF THE DAY – Crazed Grunge Punk Three-Piece GLOO Needs A ‘HOLIDAY’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

11 May 2018

Sussex eccentrics GLOO will release debut album ‘A Pathetic Youth‘ in July. Ahead of it here’s a hilarious clip for single HOLIDAY. A straight in the face grunge punk smack. A scorching bolide, a raucous thwack, an arousing explosion. They scream for a holiday,
but I think they need to get out of their straitjackets first. 1-2-3-4. Hell yeah…

Drummer Mark Harfield about the video: “Sticking true to our guns in true Littlehampton style, we wanted the video to be cheesy and home video-esque. It was shot around where all three of us live and took about three hours. Sonny, our friend, was kind enough to follow us around with my iPhone for the day and record us doing stupid sh*t – he even had to pedalo on his own to film us on our boat! We wanted it to look grey and dingy, and just to our luck it did!”
