Gli Holy Rollers di Marc Lambiotte iniziarono a Washington con quel genere di hardcore progressivo che si addice ai punk intellettuali degli anni 90. As is (Dischord 1990) e’ eclettico e avventuroso (Head on), anche se inconsistente. Fabuley (Dischord 1991) e’ un lavoro piu’ maturo, nonostante enfatizzi la schizofrenia di fondo del complesso, diviso fra melodrammi socio-politici (Perfect Sleeper), punk rock d’avanguardia (Moment before impact) e semplice pop-core (What you said, Skin deep guilt). Con una formazione rimaneggiata registrarono Holy Rollers (Dischord 1993), che si concentra essenzialmente sul lato melodico (Clear, Worlds apart), con poche incursioni nella sperimentazione (House of Fetish).

Marc Lambiotte's Holy Rollers started out in Washington with the kind of progressive hardcore that befits the intellectual punks of the 1990s. As Is (Dischord, 1990) is eclectic and adventurous (Head On) but inconsistent. Fabuley (Discord, 1991) is more mature work, although it emphasizes the fundamental schizophrenia of the band, divided between sociopolitical melodrama (Perfect Sleeper), avantgarde punk-rock (Moment Before Impact) and straightforward popcore (What You Said, Skin Deep Guilt). A revamped line-up recorded Holy Rollers (Discord, 1993), that focuses squarely on the melodic side (Clear, Worlds Apart), leaving little room for experiments (House Of Fetish).
