Interview with Hollis Mahady from Love Zombies and Hey! Hello!

Fresh from a supporting slot on the recent Wildhearts PH.U.Q. anniversary tour, Hey! Hello! headlined the Friday night at ‘The Nightmare Before Halloween’ with Hollis Mahady now front and centre as the permanent vocalist. Hollis’ other band and the one that brought her to the attention of Hey! Hello!’s founder Ginger Wildheart, Love Zombies then played the following night. With a Japanese Hey! Hello! tour coming up before some UK dates in December culminating with Ginger’s Birthday Bash in London on December 17th, there’s naturally a bit of a buzz about Miss Mahady and co.

The Wildhearts, Baby Chaos, Hey! Hello!, Live at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, September 25 2015

As I prepared to write up the review of The Wildhearts show at the Shepherds Bush Empire, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of seminal release ‘P.H.U.Q.’ , it was knowing that I would struggle to write anything but positive messages about the set and the band’s performance. These days, the Wildhearts are a safe bet. Not middle of the road, boring or even dull safe but safe in the knowledge that I’m always going to enjoy myself for the entire evening.

Camden Rocks Interviews – Ginger Wildheart

If you consider the British music scene and especially that around London, it’s very easy to play “6 degrees of Ginger Wildheart” as he seems to be linked to every band, promoter, solo artist and more around. Festival promoter Chris McCormack is the brother of Danny, once the bass player in The Wildhearts, Hollis J of the Love Zombies will also front Ginger’s Hey!Hello! project in their latest incarnation.

Ginger Wildheart, Oh F%&k I’m 50! Birthday Bash, The Forum, London, December 17 2014

Chris Catalyst is certainly a busy man. Sunday night saw him perform a solo acoustic set at The Borderline, rapidly followed by a set with C.J. Wildheart at the same gig. Then a mere three days later, here he is again, playing alongside a host of familiar faces and special guests, celebrating the 50th birthday of one of Britain’s greatest singer songwriters, Ginger Wildheart!
