WHO? THE HECK!!!
File under: Sixties punk, Garage rock, Teenage loserbeat
Wild, wild, wild! 60’s garagepunk outfit THE HECK is sonically a progression from De Keefmen. Feel free to place them somewhere in between The Sonics and Reigning Sound. High pace, hectic and energetic live performances, most usually with several band members ending up somewhere in the crowd. Seeing is believing!
Records out on Dirty Water Records (UK) and Soundflat Records (Germany)
