"To try to cover this song (Kick Out The Jams), long placed in the upper echelon of rock & roll guitar tracks, in this manner is equally a bold statement and an exercise in insanity. Yet the band makes it work, and the results are surprisingly compelling and mesmeric." - Striker Bill

"I’m familiar with them as a band that plays its own material, and when they’re doing that I’m happy to call them one of the best bands in the UK underground today (or in other words, one of the best bands in the UK). Let’s be clear about two things: they’re very good and I like them a lot.
This is their paean to some of the music that’s inspired them, a four track EP of covers, titled as a collision between MC5’s ‘Kick Out The Jams’ and The Nymphs ‘Imitating Angels’; Needless to say, the result is the coolest thing in the history of the universe this week. ‘Style’ is a much debased cultural property, but Black Hay are bringing it back." - Oliver Arditi

about

Black Hay London, UK

Black Hay is the project of London-born Gideon K and a motley crew of collaborators.

Previously described as "Worse than Leonard Cohen", Black Hay's music has gone from noirish garage rock, to grungey alt-country low-rock, via DIY house-bound balladry, to a current incarnation of cold-hearted post-punk indie synth-tronica.

The new single 'Always Be Mine' is out now.
