THE HEDRONS - HEATSEEKER
PRESENTED BY TOM MILLETT
The Hedrons formed in 2005 in their native Glasgow. With several sell out performances, the four-piece have established themselves as one of the country's foremost emerging rock bands. The band was first tipped in the NME who said of them 'an all-girl four-piece who sound like Patti Smith meets Penetration with a dash of early Blondie and a smidging of The Runaways...you have to hear this band!' Off the back of this and all media attention following, The Hedrons have already taken part in this year's 'Download' festival at Donington, one of many festivals the band played throughout this summer; also among them are T In The Park and Guilfest 2006. Of particular significance, the band stepped in as special guests to the rowdy boys of Towers Of London in June and played with Alice In Chains at their only UK show in July at the London Astoria. Most recently, the Hedrons finished their first UK tour with a bang, having sold out their debut headline show at legendary Glasgow venue King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in advance to much hometown fan frenzy. And come October 9th, The Hedrons will be the first British band ever to play a live, virtual gig as 3-D figures inside a 3-D virtual world! The Hedrons' music is decidedly one part Ramones-esque brawn, one part femme-fatale roar, and one part ruthless guitar-driven nerve. Or as lead guitarist Rosie humorously puts it, "If you listen to us, you wouldn't realise it was girls until Tippi starts singing -- you'd think it was a bunch of big hairy guys playing." The band have a nation-wide tour under their belt and will be completing another before the year's end. Both tours include dates in most major UK cities. Come spring 2007, The Hedrons will play dates in America and Canada.
TONIGHT THE HEDRONS PLAY IN CRAWDADDY DUBLIN!!!
