About the Artist

Cincinnati is a special place in Middle-America. Charlie Hustle's name still graces the Boulevard downtown, as if to say a hallowed place will always be reserved for the disgraced. Corporate giants General Electric and Proctor and Gamble loom over the ever graying landscape between twisted freeways, and the ghost of Doctor Johnny Fever beacons you as you cross the Brent Spence Bridge.

In a town where you put up, or get knocked flat on your ass…where the homeless are tougher than the football team, you learn early that respect is earned and the future holds little for the weak of heart.

Not a place that you would deem to be an artistic enclave…but something must have drifted down the river and deposited the seed of true Ohio rock and roll on the banks of this bleak outpost. The Dead Boys, The Pretenders, even his royal ghastliness Brian Warner have all drank from it's waters and gone on to immortality.

Now a new chapter is about to be written by four young men whose basement forays have turned fantasy into rock hard reality. LIGHTWEIGHT HOLIDAY have emerged to snatch the crowned jewels and become the heirs to Ohio's rock throne.

Polishing the gems of hits to be, Andy, Joey, Justin, and Matt have banded together to create a truly relevant sound that captures rocks past, present, and future. Sounding cohesive and authoritative, LIGHTWEIGHT HOLIDAY are paving a road that others merely hope to tread on.

Drawing on influences as wide ranging as The Undertones, The Small Faces, Teenage Fanclub and Superdrag, the boys always manage to make it appear effortless and incendiary, while maintaining an aura of composure and cool you wish they sold in a neat package. Wait a minute! They do sell that package, and it'll be on your favorite record stores shelf this summer. So pour yourself a Beam and Coke, sit back…and wait for the fireworks to begin. These guys are going to trash the 'Nati and all points beyond.

Product Description

Feel good rock and roll from Cincinnati Ohio. These guys know how to write 'em and it shows on this their debut self titles release. If you are a fan of The Anniversary, Superdrag, Get Up Kids, or Teenage Fanclub you will love this record to death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Superdrag...Lightweight Holiday is here July 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Finally, after watching 5 years of horribly promoted music in Cincinnati, a band has finally risen to stardom through a small indie label known as Porterhouse. These guys worked their way up from being a cliche' pop-punk band to a retro indie band with a hell of a lot more style. With the sound of Koufax, and Ex-Vagrant's The Anniversary, LH provides a glimse into the future of what rock is turning into. The standout tracks "Keep On" and "Goodbye and Goodnight" really light the album up and off the ground, hopefully they can eventually attract attention from a major label and be the first in years to come out of the cincinnati rock scene alive before falling apart. The album also includes two remade old tunes from their first 2000 self titled debut on Crayon Records (which they'd probably rather forget).

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockstars emerge from the Nati October 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This group of talented young musicians from Cincinnati, Ohio put their all into this album. This punk/pop genre of music is an easy listen and will have you humming their tunes all day long. The lyrics are that of love and heartbreak and you can feel the devotion these guys put into their music with every word of every song. Its truly amazing that such young guys have come together to create such a catchy sound for all to hear. I can only hope there is another album coming from this group very soon. I can't stop listening to their CD now as it is and know that anything these guys can come up with will be nothing less than exceptional. And the rockstars from Cincinnati begin :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Found what i was looking for January 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
had been looking for this album for a specific song- lost a previously owned copy at some point in the last couple years. prompt delivery, recommend seller. item was listed as "new" but case was obviously not new- disk seemed in new condition, but should have been listed as "like new"- would have been very upset if disk had been intended as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow July 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I cant believe some "punk" kids some Cincinnati Ohio can made such a good album. I bought it on a whim on amazon.com and was very surprised by the artistic quality this band possesses. Its not punk yet not emo. The blend is absolutely original. I would definetely recommend this album to any fans of good rock music.
