Customer Reviews

Some of the best, pure music you have never heard.

These guys were actually the opening act for the first concert I ever attended [Midnight Oil in Raleigh, NC 1987] - I didn't know what to expect from an opening band [a two-man band at that]. Bryan Harvey and Johnny Hott put on a show that continues to play in my memories 100+ concerts later. The Hi-Five EP is a great sample of their body of work. I was sickened to see the way Harvey [and his family] were murdered last year. Thankfully his killers will never enjoy another day of freedom. Rest in peace Bryan.

A Great Band & One of the Best Live Concerts

Wow! I am very sad today. I had not heard about the murders of Bryan and his family. I was lucky enough to see House of Freaks on three occasions, including their farewell performance in Richmond years ago. These guys were an amazing duo that created a full-band sound in their concert performances with just a guitar and drum set. I have all of their albums and still listen to them frequently. I'm glad to see the good folks at Rhino are recognizing this great band in this EP.

Strong and lyrical music

What a trip to hear another reviewer mention that House of Freaks opened for Midnight Oil. I saw the same tour in San Francisco and experienced one of those magical moments when I took an instant liking to an opening act I had never heard of before. Fast forward 20 years later. A week ago I was banging my head against every hard surface in sight trying to remember the name of this band. The banging must have helped because I woke up the next day thinking "Freaks, freaks, freaks...", then FINALLY the full band name popped into my head. I couldn't remember any songs, only that I had been blown away by their live show 20 years ago, bought their album, and loved it. Well, I downloaded some of their songs from iTunes, and right away I could hear why I dug this band so much back in college. If you appreciate sincere music with pleasing melodies, intriguing lyrics, and a steady dose of power, I recommend plopping down a buck and giving "40 Years" a few listens.

Biography

Formed: 1986 in Richmond, VA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

While such groups as the White Stripes, the Black Keys, the Kills, and the Evens made the notion of a guitar-and-drums duo fairly commonplace in the early 21st century, the idea of two guys making music without the help of a bassist was considered unusual indeed when Bryan Harvey and Johnny Hott formed House of Freaks. Fueled by stripped-down blues and folk-rock songs propelled by Hott's muscular drumming and the chock-a-block guitar work of Harvey, House of Freaks (the name was drawn from an old...
