Biography

Much-missed indie-pop combo Holiday formed on the campus of Yale University in late 1992; originally comprising singer/guitarist Josh Gennet, guitarist Matt Snow, bassist Andrew Park and an Alesis drum machine, the group -- initially dubbed Wimp Rocket -- self-released their 1993 debut cassette The Big Pickle before adding drummer Paul Moyano and travelling to Chicago to record their official debut EP, the Dave Trumfio-produced My Roommate Joe. Drummer Calvin Chin replaced Moyano for the follow-up single, "Permission Slip," and after issuing "Prostitutes in Town" in the fall of 1994, Holiday signed with March Records to issue their self-titled debut album in February. The record's airy, shimmering sound made it a major favorite of underground pop aficionados, and its fine follow-up, 1996's Ready, Steady, Go!, was also a cult hit. Drummer J. Niimi replaced Chin for 1997's Cafe Reggio; by the time of its release, however, Holiday was already a thing of the past -- the group disbanded following their appearance at the New York Popfest that January. Gennet went on to record as the Singletons. ~ Jason Ankeny
