High Hopes: Henry's Funeral Shoe

Say hello to the Valleys’ guitar-smashing rock’n’roll sole brothers

“Everyone wears their best shoes to a funeral, don’t they? It’s a thing in our bit of Wales…” Aled Clifford is explaining his unpublished short story from which his band’s name – Henry's Funeral Shoe – originates.

A clunky moniker, perhaps, but the noise they make is worlds more invigorating: think demonic blues-rock’n’roll, with a steel-eyed brutality that brings to mind punk clubs and bloody fist fights. As a rock two-piece, parallels with the White Stripes and (more recently) Royal Blood are unsurprising, though HFS draw from elsewhere.
