Interview – The Hell Beings

I actually interviewed The Hell Beings fairly recently, which was an interesting experience to say the least. I shared a new track by them, Court Of Appeal, so wanted to have another bash at it. See how we got on this time below!

By Jane Howkins

You recently released a song titled Court Of Appeal, which we reviewed. What can you tell us about this song and where can it be purchased?

Bluffing the vocal, considerably impeded by my back giving me gip.

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

Seize the day, purple patch graciously accepted.

What is the writing and recording process like for you?

Quick, moody pondering, cathartic spew. I changed the entire verse of the music the day before, I can’t regret what was right on the day, I almost believe that myself.

Have you started writing for a future EP/album yet?

A veritable mountain of two minute wonders bubble in my kit bag.

Do you plan to release any singles in the near future?

Four tracks a year because of affordability, two at a time so it goes.

What/who influences you most as artists? What have you been listening to recently?

I’m glad you asked – Fugazi, AC/DC, Dylan, Bowie, Forever Spinning Yob, All Them Witches, Mahuvishna Orchestra, American Sharks, Captain Beefheart and Free. AC/DC always.

Whereabouts are you based and what is the music scene like in your part of the world?

Brighton, thriving punk rockers everywhere.

Do you have any tour dates lined up?

I’m unlikely to tour, they might not let me back in.

What can people expect from one of your shows and why should people come and see you perform live?

False starts predictably, terror, thumbs up or down surely.

Any last words for the fans?

The glass half full is all we have, so it goes too.
