Shitty Interview No.61
Every now & then you discover a new artist that makes you wonder “how the fuck did they ever come up with this?” Their art is like nothing else you have seen before it & you can’t help but go away from it feeling incredibly inspired.
This music Monday we had the opportunity to shitty interview the incredible fast-paced, thrashing mutant freax behind Ho99o9 (pronounced Horror).
Founded by theOGM & Eaddy in New Jersey, Ho99o9 have an insatiable propensity for world order, peace, anarchy, chaos & macabre. Their move to Los Angeles in 2014, & a string of killer high-energy live shows, quickly gained them a cult following.
Influenced by pain, death of individuality, our decaying & oppressive society, the underbelly of urban core, DOOM & freedom of expression, Ho99o9 is completely unafraid. Even if you hate their music, you can’t help but admire their ability to give zero fucks.
Since it’s impossible to describe Ho99o9 with words, I have enclosed a recent video they did in collaboration with Converse along with some rad new exclusive images by their Brooklyn homie, Tod Seelie.
And of course in order to get to them a little better, here is our shitty interview with theOGM & Eaddy of Ho99o9 🙂
