Released on an EP ahead of their second album Flik Y’Self Off Y’Self, the promo for 'Faster Hooves' showed that while Head Like A Hole had distilled the industrial-thrash of their grimy origins into a hookier, more polished sound, the band had lost none of their piss-taking humour. With the rocky outcrops of Wellington's Island Bay filling in for the Wild West, singer Nigel 'Booga' Beazley teeters precariously on a helpless donkey, in pursuit of villainous drummer Mark 'Hidee Beast' Hamill. Meanwhile the rest of band hang on nooses next to a boiling campfire pot of Wattie's finest.
We haven't been together for years and years and years, therefore why should the radio stations play lots of our music? And we're not a classic New Zealand rock band in the eyes of the New Zealand music industry are we? I'm not a Dave Dobbyn or a Neil Finn...– Lead vocalist Nigel 'Booga' Beazley on the band's notoriety, Radio New Zealand, 29 July 2017
