"With a heart-stopping collection Holton's Opulent Oog are also set to make waves with an alt. country gem The Problem Of Knowledge." Music Week

Holton’s Opulent Oog 'The Problem of knowledge' is a beautifully realised album full of bright tunes, dark thoughts, happy days & long nights. It’s a minimalist creation built around the Spanish Guitar & Violin. Lots of space to puzzle & get lost in. You will find yourself tapping your toe to the mellow snarl of Tab, smiling through See You in La La, sighing along with Oaki Room, ducking as McCutcheon's drums drives the upbeat patch work psychedilia of Fountain of Hate, before holding your breath at Pour it Out.

Most of what you will hear is the fruit of one or two takes; a deliberate decision to capture these particular songs as they were bursting into flower. It gives to all of them the tension of spontaneity and a one shot deal grandeur. But please note, The Oogs reserve the right to make their next recordings make Phil Spector flip his rug.

Holton’s Opulent Oog features Ian McCutcheon (Mojave3 & Loose Salute), Simon Rowe (Chapter House & Mojave3), Caroline Banks (Seafood & Caz Mechanic). Holton's Opulent Oog who recorded and produced the album for £100. in/on their own analogue studio. Where Holton produced Sleeping on Roads by Neil Halstead in 2002 & more recently Caz Mechanic.

Holton's Opulent Oog toured last year with Mojave 3 ending at a full Jazz Cafe (Camden) & the album 'The Problem of Knowledge' was featured in Music Week as one the 10 most recommended forthcoming releases of the year (no 2!).
