“The name Holopaw might not ring a bell for you if you’re a troglodyte with no taste. To fill your dumb ass in, the Gainesville, Florida–based band is fronted by queer indie rock veteran John Orth, who performed alongside Issac Brock of Modest Mouse in his weird-as-fuck side project, Ugly Casanova. Over the years, Holopaw has put out a bunch of dope releases. But their latest album, Academy Songs: Vol. 1, is especially weird and off-kilter and awesome.
For the video for the single “Dirty Boots,” the band teamed up with Brooklyn-based filmmaker Adam Baran to make a beautifully shot short. The video features narration by legendary and semi-reclusive 70s gay porn star Peter Berlin (Nights in Black Leather, That Boy), and it stars Dominic J. Fournier, the man behind the many penis and butthole pictures on the ABeardedBoy Tumblr page. According to the press release, “the film celebrates the ever-evolving queer landscape of NYC, the historically iconic erotic archetype of the leather/biker gang, and the characters portrayed in the songs on Holopaw’s album.” For us, this video is the perfect excuse we need to 86 that creepy fluffer we hire for boner-focused fashion shoots, like this one. Who needs a gimp with no gag reflex when this video’s got enough crotch and butt shots to raise a homo chubby like a Caterpillar hammerhead construction crane?”
