If you think that Rosie, Soup, Tippi and Gill are some characters from a new kids show then you’d better give your head a shake and pick up a copy of One More Won’t Kill Us by The Hedrons quick! These four women from Glasgow certainly know how to rock and their debut CD offers plenty of evidence that they are here for the long haul.
I have already played I Need You a number of times on Rock and Roll Report Radio but the CD finally arrived at Rock and Roll Report HQ this week and I can assure you that the Ramones meets Iggy meets Joan Jett comparisons are accurate although completely unnecessary. This CD is infused with what some might call “punky attitude” but which in reality is merely rock and roll as it is meant to be played. The Hedrons have been blazing a fierce trail on stages throughout the UK as well as taking the UK indie record charts by storm. Have a listen to lead off track Heatseeker, Stop, Look & Listen, Once Upon a Time or Frame of Mind for some absolutely first rate, loud rock ‘n roll.
They are touring all over the UK this summer including playing a bunch of high profile gigs like T in the Park and the Download Festival and have sold out venues like the Knitting Factory, the Key Club, The Roxy and Spaceland here in North America. The Hedrons have really been wowing crowds with their amazing stage show and the fact that they have the songs to back up their onstage bluster means that The Hedrons will be a force to be reckoned with, and they are just getting started!
Have a listen to some of their stuff on their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/thehedrons and enjoy. This band definitely lives up to all the hype. Check ’em out if you get the chance.
