Thee Hypnotics

Legendary British band Thee Hypnotics shook up the underground in the late 80s achieving notorious popularity with just three records and one live performance published. They were the first European band to publish under the Sub Pop label during its global take-off, touring with Mudhoney, Screaming Trees, The Black Crowes and Smashing Pumpkins, amongst others. Their music was influenced by bands from the late 60s such as The Stooges, MC5, The Doors, Led Zeppelin and Pink Fairies, a precursor to today’s stoner rock. A history lesson for the class of 2018 at ARF in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
