John Holden has a lot to say and posts videos about it every few months on the Ractalfece YouTube channel. It is a mix of comedy and spoken word art, and Holden has drawn a crowd of fans because of it. One of those fans, Matthew Norby, met Holden when the YouTube star moved into the same apartment building. While Norby was starting up a band with Pete Biasi doing tekno and footwork music, the three all started making videos together, layering Holden’s word stylings and stories over digital music. Eventually, Dog Park Barbeque was born.
