The Last Holy Fools

BandRockPop

"The Last Holy Fools are a Los Angeles trio that's been compared to a Nirvana and Velvet Underground hybrid, and it's a well-earned comparison. Their music reflects a deep respect for lyrics and subtlety, as well as power chords and a mic stand in the face."-- John Reseland, The Maneater, 9/29/06

Biography

Guts. Brains. Eclecticism. All these elements combine to form a uniquely American brand of arty garage rock that goes by the name The Last Holy Fools.

Alex Kim, the drummer, is a musical all-rounder from the Musician's Institute in Los Angeles. He is adept at classical piano, guitar, bass, trumpet, and ProTools, to name just a few of the instruments he plays. He is the band's technical wiz and an ace songwriter. He is equal parts Chopin and AC/DC.

David Waterman, the bass player, is the steady hand, the bridge between the drums and guitar. He provides the glue that holds the songs together, and without which they would fail. He is simultaneously soft spoken and utterly hilarious. Of all the members, he is closest to nirvana.

Brendan Gill, the guitarist, is the band's hungry wolf. Fueled by optimism and a drive to communicate, he is always passionate, if not always note perfect. He digs deep into his life experiences and time in the library to create 3-minute pop operas. He introduced the other members of the band to each other.

Lyrics

She's So Heavy

Written By: The Last Holy Fools

She's unstoppable, it's undeniable,
I can't take her,
She's unbelievable, it's unconceivable, now she wants me and I wanna be free,
I can't take it, I won't make it, I can't shake it now, She's So Heavy, She's So Heavy, She's So Heavy, she won't let me be me, She's so heavy x3, she won't let me be free.
She's insatiable, I'm incapable, can't make her,
she's indefinable, I'm indefinable, now she wants me and I can't get free, She's So Heavy, She's So Heavy, She's So Heavy, she won't let me be me, She's so heavy x3, she won't let me be free,
Please let me go, let me go, let me go, gotta get away, get away, get away
Please let me go, let me go, let me go, gotta get away get away get away, before you squeeze the life out of me.
She's So Heavy x3.

All that she wanted

Written By: The Last Holy Fools

I've lost it all, and I'll be coming back, to an empty house, it's killing me, youre running out and I caught you looking back, stopped you in your tracks, and we won't be talking, no we won't be talking
It was all that she wanted x2
I've had enough, and i see right thru it, got me thinking the way you want me to, don't stop, 'cause we're running out of time, I'm the only one to break into you, break into you,
It was all that she wanted (repeats)
