“I need some joy in my life!” cries Alfie Jackson, lead singer of the Holloways. But since this band already sounds so exuberant and alive, you have to wonder if any more joy might just make them explode. Vaguely ska, except good, The Holloways have been the subject of a great deal of buzz lately - perhaps that explains their happiness. Plus, they have a man on the 'egg shaker' and sound like Dexys Midnight Runners on crack. Ace.
