Humousexual

go here to listen & download: everardrecords.com/humousexual

two queer veg*n indiepunk boys playing songs about their ménage à trois with chickpeas.

other recurring themes: cycling, travelling, sarf london, diy, music, tahini

these are friends of mine, so i suppose there’s a level of bias, but i really think that this band is great. witty lyrics, and lots of musical variety. as far as i know everything's sold out, but the album on irrk may be reissued. after a couple of years hiatus humousexual have started playing again & are recording new stuff at the moment, which is great news. anyway, hope people enjoy this.

I don't know if either of Humousexual frequent Anorak, but I bet they will be quietly touched that their work is appreciated on these pages, just as one half of them was when a couple of people introduced themselves to him as Humousexual fans during the course of Indietracks.

I'm as horribly biased as Everard on the matter, I don't doubt, but I adore Tahini Beach Party and much of what it stands for - great punk-pop sensibilities, biting humour in places, and proof positive that you can knock out fantastic product on the most basic of equipment and a budget of practically nil.

I know that the gigs in Germany this summer went well, likewise the set I attended at the Betsey Trotwood, and that new material is indeed being worked on. I think they'd be a big asset to the next Indietracks line-up, and I'll slap with a wet herring anyone who doesn't think "This boy is dextrous with his seven inches" is one of the best lines in a song EVER.

I'm informed by he who is also Firm Turds that there is no plan to tour that particular entity, however, so you'll just have to make do with enjoying Oh Well Noel and the like from the comfort of your own loungette for now. Ah well.

plans are afoot ... they spent tuesday recording a new four song 7" which will be out sometime (featuring the future hit "oh camberwell"). and they played with jean genet at an NYE party in balham last night.

one is a prolific, legendary london diy band, the other is boitel and victor. i don't think those gigs are likely to be troubled by disgruntled humousexual fans ;-)
