‘I had the intention to try for some kind of early solo John Lee Hooker sound but played through the hijacked gear of Black Sabbath or Blue Cheer. Then there’s the latter part of those Invocation recordings where I was getting more ambitious and pushing further out with loops and effects pedals and bass harmonicas etc.’
Jonny Halifax and The Howling Truth is Halifax’ newest project after being the one-man band called Honkeyfinger. This time he’s not alone, but the music is still as dirty as it used to be. If you like bluesy rock, you’re in for a treat.
Support of Joel Wells and Weirds

Inspired by both the arrangements of Uruguayan songwriter Jaime Roos and the production of American master Dr. Dre, this collection of songs presents his continued approach to existential questioning through pop music.
