The Holy Gasp Interview & Show # 621

This week’s episode of Revolution Rock featured an interview with Benjamin Hackman of the Toronto band The Holy Gasp. The band while their sound is difficult to pinpoint, sounds as if Nick Cave is singing with a jazz band that mixes in elements of Afro-Cuban rhythms and beatnik poetry. The band released their first full-length album The Last Generation Of Love in 2015 and are currently working on material for a follow up release by road testing the material.

Check out my interview with Benjamin Hackman here:
