Band Of Holy Joy

Clouds That Break The Sky

Band Of Holy Joy Clouds That Break The Sky Import Gbr
 
 





These early releases make a case for BOHJ as the last fully original and inspired post-punk combo. In the C86 period, with its half-hearted Postcard copyists, uninspired Buzzcocks wannabes and zany Beefheart types, BOHJ sounded unique. Yet during those days, BOHJs depth, socio-political lyricism and portraiture of tragic human existence just made them pariahs. The Clouds That Break The Sky gathers up all of the early releases issued on records bearing Band Of Holy Joys name alone. The 41 tracks presented here originate from two albums, four Eps and singles, plus four unreleased alternate studio versions. These recordings and the bands live performances led to a deal with Rough Trade. These recordings do not fall into easy categories - theres a touch of the odd humanism of early Virgin Prunes, the bile and humour of early Microdisney, a touch of Vic Godards wit and wink, even pre- rock romanticism . . . but Band Of Holy Joy stand alone. This box is a limited edition of 400.
