Paralleling the move from CD to vinyl with digital download, Ottawa artist and filmmaker Lesley Marshall brings us a VHS transfer, with digital download, of her multi-camera, multi-format recording of an August 16, 2012 Holy Cobras show at Babylon Nightclub.
The authentic, gritty, tactile “home movie” quality of VHS taps into feelings of nostalgia and good-times-gone-by: a fitting tribute to these relocated Ottawa favourites. Like seeing your dad before he grew that moustache and started tucking in his shirts, check out the irreplaceable Holy Cobras in their final moments of hometown Ottawa rock ‘n roll.
