Today, Danny Goffey releases ‘Sick Holiday’, the latest single from his new album ‘Schtick!’ released June 22nd on Distiller Records. He has also announced the lineup for Goffstonbury, his own Glastonbury-placeholder festival taking place at his home in Somerset on June 23rd.
Inspired by “a trio of fluorescent vested reprobates” Danny encountered on an EasyJet flight, armed with fishbowl cocktails and primed for tactical chunders, ‘Sick Holiday’ is an ode to the timeless British custom of getting off your rocker at the first glimpse of sunshine. “I woke up on my own in a dark little room, with no recollection of why or who / With an ashtray mouth and a crack on the bone, no passport, wallet or mobile phone” spits Danny over a vibrant, punchy riff, serving a tongue-in-cheek warning to his listener of the all too familiar perils of getting “right mashed up.”
Speaking about the track, Danny says: “The actual name ‘Sick Holiday’ was a phrase that these lads were saying behind me on an EasyJet flight on the way back from Greece. Each time a lurid or outrageous story was regaled, another would end it with ‘but nah bruv… SICK ‘OLIDAY though…yeah?’ I just quietly wrote out what these lads were chatting about.”
