Electro Hippies


Electro Hippies was a proto-grindcore/crust hardcore punk band formed out of Liverpool, United Kingdom in 1985. Though they were short lived and underground all through their career, their music has influenced many future crust punk bands and hardcore punk bands. They also played what would soon be known as grindcore (Napalm Death and Repulsion would later be the "innovators" of the genre). The band relied heavily on low bass end sounds to create their low-fi, primitive-produced music. Read more on Last.fm

(do it yourself) ethic which was very common among many early crust punk bands. The Electro Hippies were most notable for including Jeff Walker (guitar, vocals) in their ranks. He later would join extreme metal band Carcass. When Jeff joined Carcass full time, Simon (drums) and Andy (guitar) assumed vocal duties in the band. Eventually, the band split up sometime in 1989, playing one last gig and releasing the show as their final album.

After the split, guitarist / vocalist Andy Barnard resurrected his band Nightmare Visions. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
