The Hopkinsville Goblins


The Hopkinsville Goblins made their first appearance in rural Kentucky in 1955 and have popped up all over the world ever since. They love people and like to play, but too much contact drains their powers. A close encounter with backwoods songwriter Alvis Impulsive led to the formation of a creative bond that helps them express themselves through the universal language of music. These little guys are interstellar nomads that want to pass their wisdom on to help the human race avoid a bland extinction. And dance while it does it.

Band Members:
Alvis Impulsive (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vocals)

Serf City - new single release
Posted: Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:05 pm
This post announces the new single release from The Hopkinsville Goblins, “Serf City”.

Timed to be topical around election time, it’s a thinly disguised stab at life in New Zealand’s largest city – a place now so absurdly over-priced that even its own residents can’t afford to live there. For the few that can it’s probably a really nice place to be, although it does tend to rain a lot. For everyone else it’s … well, get the single and you can sing along to the chorus.

Let them eat lamingtons on the last bus home.

Available via I-Tunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play. Links at:

And keep an eye out for the new Hopkinsville Goblins album due out early September.

A word to the wise for readers of the review of the Hopkinsville Goblins album posted on this site. It's probably not a cool thing to reply to a review but we felt obliged to on this occasion. They don't call me Impulsive for nothing.

When The Cure's first album was panned by the NME, Robert Smith was inspired to write a song satirising it. The Hopkinsville Goblins could have done the same, but the review here is so short we couldn't get enough material out of it to work with. We get the impression the reviewer skimmed through the tracks then based her review on the sleeve notes because some of it is just plain wrong. Just so y'all know, the album is 76 minutes long with an average track length of 5 minutes, so not sure where the "not hugely long in length" interpretation comes from. The mish mash of styles can be translated as "it won't fit in a box so I'll bag it". "Poor production quality" - that's what the corporate world said about Tall Dwarfs honey. And flat vocals. Yeah probably.

Listen to it for yourselves via the HG blog. Gimmick, novelty or serious music with a sense of humour. Who cares - it's worth more than the review written on this otherwise excello site.
