We are Hole Tripper
Hole Tripper are a two‐piece English rock band. The band live in the South West and the first album was recorded and produced in two separate studios; a hundred miles apart with the band never playing a note together in the same place.
GD writes and sings the songs, with GDC playing, recording & producing the music.
Cancer gave the band purpose and Covid gave the band focus. The brothers have been playing and writing songs since the early 1990s, but the band essentially did not exist other than a few poorly organised meet-ups that quickly devolved into drunkenness and hilarity. A terminal diagnosis even if that diagnosis could be a long time coming was the slap in the face required to provide the impetus to get the songs down. Covid allowed the band to focus entirely on recording the songs and not all the other distractions. Not traditional rock and roll but that’s the point, isn’t it?
We write a mix of stuff from fairly heavy rock to acoustic stuff and like that not all the songs sound the same but they have the same kind of sound.
We are heavily influenced by early 90's grunge and other rock bands and our offerings are probably trapped a few decades out of their time and place but oh well everything comes around again eventually....
One of the benefits of being a hole-dweller and waiting so long to actually make any music is that we have tonnes of songs coming - which is great if you like us and irrelevant to you if you don't.
So, if you want to hear music that:
- is independently made
- has been made literally as if the bands' life depended on it.....
Welcome to our site and we hope you like our efforts - if not email us and tell us how we can improve so we can take pleasure in deleting it.
