Hookworms


Liverpool based Bonnacons of Doom have this week presented the second track to come from their hotly anticipated debut LP to be released on Rocket Recordings on 18th May. The track called ‘Argenta’ is some ten minutes long on the album, and so the have released an edited five minute version as a teaser. Recorded …

Rating: 7/10 Hookworms are a band that need no introduction really and yet with a noticeable three-year absence from releasing new material some would be forgiven for forgetting about them. The release of the Leeds bands new LP marks a shift in their sound, dynamic song-writing and production whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy …

Hookworms are back with another track and video “Static Resistance”, from the forthcoming “Microshift” album.  While the band say that “It’s a song about the wax and wane of depression and an eternal want to escape the life you’ve built.”, the toe-tapping beat and bright colours in the almost Parklife-esque video give the initial impression of …

Tonight sees us venture once more to the Trades Club in Hebden Bridge, which is bathed in psychedelic colours courtesy of White Rabbit and a never-to-be-repeated show with the legendary Damo Suzuki is guaranteed. Opening are Sowerby Bridge’s own XAM Duo, comprised of Matthew Benn of Hookworms and Christopher Duffin of Deadwall. Signed to Sonic …

A total mix of stuff this week. I started with a clean slate about two hours ago and have put together 15 tracks that help express how wide contemporary psychedelic music can be. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.   Tortuga by Earthling Society Taken from the 2014 Riot …

This was Hookworms third appearance at the Liverpool PsychFest, with the band’s rise up the bill over that time matching it increasing prominence and success elsewhere. Following last year’s excellent Hum album (which made the Psych Insight essential list last year), Hookworms have been on something of a hiatus, with most of the band members …

This year I have teamed up with Adam Harmsworth of Psychedelic Drone Rock to bring you twenty albums that have really inspired us in 2014. After last year’s glut of fantastic new albums we really wondered whether 2014 could deliver more great music. We need not have worried because, if anything, this year has seen an even …

I guess it’s time to start thinking which summer festival to attend and I’m really excited about the first acts announced by Beacons Festival. This independent festival is only in its third year (after the 2011 event was forced to close due to flooding) and it seems to be giving the bigger festivals a definate …

I find it hard to think of any band who I have seen live more often over recent years than The Hookworms. They have been on the live scene in Leeds, where I have lived for most of the previous twenty years before my move to Sheffield last year, for a few years now. Strangely …

For me it wasThe Elephants. It was somewhere in Denmark, and they were Danish. They were (outrageously) below the bill than the band I was in, and so I wandered out to watch them, and was instantly blown away. On my return, the first things I did was buy their album, bang onto everyone I …
