Dickie Hammond’s band is back!


Lost In Translation

HDQ need little introduction to anyone who knows anything about UK punk rock. The hugely successful band from Sunderland were one of the leading lights of the late 80s hardcore punk scene and one of the first to openly be influenced by the melodic sounds of the mid 80s American hardcore punk bands like Dag Nasty, Descendents, Hüsker Dü. After numerous tours and the release of three critically acclaimed albums, two Peel Sessions, plus seven inch and twelve inch singles, 75% of the band went on with Frankie Stubbs to form LEATHERFACE and have even more success over the years. Now, David Golledge (Vocals), Dickie Hammond (Guitar) and have reunited with Skruff Owen (ex LEATHERFACE – Drums), Mick Jones (guitar) and Dean Liddle (bass) to record the first new HDQ album in 23 years – and “Lost In Translation” does not disappoint – its everything you would want and expect from an HDQ album in the 21st century, Golly’s vocals have never sounded better, and complement the unmistakable guitar sound of Dickie Hammond to a tee.
