WHO? THE HECK!!!
File under: Sixties punk, Garage rock, Teenage loserbeat
Wild, wild, wild! THE HECK is Sensational Second Cousin Henri’s new 60’s garage punk outfit. Sonically a progression from his former band De Keefmen, feel free to place them somewhere in between The Sonics and Reigning Sound. Their debut WHO? THE HECK!!!, out on Dirty Water Records (April 2019), is full of razor-sharp catchy pop songs, served with the power and intensity of pure punk.
High pace, hectic and energetic live performances, most usually with several band members ending up somewhere in the crowd. Seeing is believing!
THE HECK IS
Henri Keefman – Vocals, guitar
René Katerbarg – Bass
Erik Berends – Drums
“Wanna hear more rock & roll – and that’s the main reason to head over to Groningen for Eurosonic – check out The Heck (rebirth of De Keefmen from Klazienaveen, sounds like: The Sonics, Reigning Sound), Excelsior-signing Mooon or the Rotterdam-based Iguana Death Cult.”
”The songs are played rapidly after one another and their energy is really contagious. Yeah, a show by The Heck is exactly what you want when attending a garagerock night!”

“The band is rock solid and plays garagerock of the kind we would like te hear more from and could take them to bigger stages!”
“The Heck is a solid band, despite the fact that the age of one year has yet to be met. A band with already a lot of nice songs and an own sound.”
“Rough sixties garage, but with reluctance and enough space for tension. Never getting bored. Better with every song. (…) In tightness, many people can learn a lot from them!!!”
