Like Barenaked Girls, the Hot Pole Honeys are an all-male music group having a female-minded name–none from the Hot Pole Honeys are ladies, and their name is intended to be sweet, funny and ironic. However the Honeys’ music doesn’t sound anything like Barenaked Girls’ substitute pop-rock. The Honeys’ niche is old college punk, and although the music group wasn’t shaped until 1996, their brief, fast, raw tracks (the majority of that are under 3 minutes) recall the traditional punk from the past due ‘70s and early ‘80s. Even though Honeys are from Belgium all their lyrics are in British. And actually, the Honeys appear to be they may be from Britain. British pub rock and roll and early United kingdom punk are solid influences, even though Honeys are barely oblivious to American punk. Among their principal inspirations may be the New York-based Ramones, whose impact they proudly recognize on the tune known as “Love as well as the Ramones”. But if the Honeys are sketching on United kingdom or American affects, it is apparent that they recognize with punk’s power pop side–and those punk-pop intuition are something they obtain from the Ramones in addition to influential British isles combos just like the Buzzcocks as well as the Damned. The Honeys are also influenced with the garage area rock and United kingdom Invasion rock from the ‘60s; in the event that you pay attention closely, it is possible to sometimes hear ideas from the Rolling Rocks as well as the Kinks within the Belgians’ infectious, full of energy work. After obtaining jointly in 1996, the Honeys obtained a little cult pursuing in Europe in addition to in america. They will have since documented for different brands (most of them little independents) in various countries, including Wrench in Britain, Rocking Bone fragments in Italy and Demolition Derby within their indigenous Belgium. Within the U.S., they will have documented for just two San Francisco-based indies: Emperor and Man’s Mess up. In 1999, Man’s Mess up released the Honeys’ full-length record, Horny and Starving. Meanwhile, their record Kill Me Today! continues to be released by Demolition Derby.
