High Hopes: Black Foxxes – "ragged noise" trio from Exeter
After suffering electrocution and panic attacks, ragged rockers Black Foxxes are on the up.
Black Foxxes reserve the right to fuck up. “You see bands now,” sighs frontman Mark Holley, “and everything’s going through a computer; it’s exactly the same every night. But that’s not what music is about. Hendrix wouldn’t have been perfect every time. Neil Young definitely isn’t. But that’s why he’s so good, because it’s raw and honest. We go out there and it’s like a lottery. The occasional fuck-up is endearing – and we have a lot of them.”
