The Noise - The People 2018

God's Holy Trousers's eight album is a breezy and upbeat musical exploration of war and the existence of motorway service stations. Most notably the Trousers have observed that since the opening of the UK's first service station at Watford Gap in November 1959 not a single World War has been recorded. Is there a future where international conflict and Little Chef can coexist? Listen to find out ...

D.Wice & Vijit - 2011

GHT's fifth studio album is available to listen and download. The music is written and performed by Morrid and Mountjoy, variously performing on guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and banjo. Maternik plays Cello and newly-arrived-in-the-UK French sensation Yacine provides additional vocals. And with the Moksha Man's trademark Blitzkreig rap all the over the record, we have included lyrics for all tracks so you too can sing along.

The Monkey of the Inkpot - 2009

"The fourth outing from London's GHT shows them at their most cutting edge, finding cacophony from melody and discord where harmony once reigned. It is a tour de force, the Tour de France and a Tongan tourist with Tourette's altogether, like vomity slops in a bucket."

- Morrid's mother.

Arrant Pony - 2009

Arguably the Trousers' magnum opus, Arrant Pony was unleashed in early 2009 to stunned silence by the critics, who clearly had never heard anything like it before.

Indeed, since its release, only one critic, Huw Hugh Hewson of the Independent, has dared to encapsulate the subtle complexity of the album's mix of Prog Hop, Jazz, Reggae and Funk saying that he "had never heard anything like it before; please can I go and lie down now?" Despite disputed sightings on the continent, Hewson's subsequent disappearance remains a mystery.

Pimp My Plectrum - 2008

The Trousers' eagerly awaited second release was heralded as a triumph (albeit of luck over substance) by most music critics, while legendary fusion pundit Harry 'The Impaler' McNally termed the album, "the logical successor to a frontal lobotomy". It was also mentioned on Desert Island Discs by Colonel Gadaffi, who argued that, whilst he disliked the music, the disc made for a pleasing frisbee.

Amid such hype, PMP enjoyed the commercial success it deserved. As yet, only 5 copies have been sold and the Trousers are awaiting legal proceedings from their record company regarding losses incurred.

Eat My House Keys - 2007

God's Holy Trouser's debut album Eat My House Keys was released in 2007 to almost complete critical and public indifference, reaching only 164 in the UK Prog-Hop charts.

In recent years a number of name-checks by influential artists as diverse as Rolf Harris and Slipknot have seen a gradual rekindling of interest. Eat My House Keys is now seen as something of a classic, with original copies changing hands for as much as 38 on E-Bay.
